Nothing. That's exactly how it's designed, both the G1 and G2 (a.k.a. HTC Hero) have a very crippled form of Bluetooth which cannot be used for file transfers of any kind.

It will pair up for Bluetooth headsets, but even then the chipset will not allow Bluetooth voice dialling.

As this is purely a hardware limitation there are no apps, firmware updates or updated OS releases which can fix it.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I hope that you've found my posting to be of some use. All I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

Bluetooth paired but not coneected


How to pair and then connect to a Bluetooth device on your T-Mobile G1 Google smartphone.
1. First, ensure Bluetooth is enabled.
2. From the Home screen, press Menu.
3. Select Settings.
4. Select Wireless controls.
5. Select Bluetooth settings.
6. The G1 starts searching for Bluetooth devices in range. Select the device when it appears.
7. Type the PIN for the device.
8. The device should then pair with the G1. You can then select the device name to connect.
Bluetooth only supports ad2p profiles for headsets, music, and sharing of contacts and pictures. This is limited by VZ. Until the phone is rooted, there is absolutely no way around this. You cannot send files other than contacts and pictures via bluetooth.

It sucks... I know. I am in the same boat. I am [im]patiently waiting for the droid to be rooted so I can use bluetooth to share files between two droids.

Bluetooth not accepting anything


The T-Mobile G1 doesn't actually support file transfer through bluetooth :S So it's not faulty, it's just not programmed to do that. Sorry! However it should be able to find your bluetooth headset, it always finds mine. Maybe the headset is faulty?

Unable to pair Nokia N85 to Parrot car Kit


It's possible that you need to reset the parrot - seems it might only accept pairing with one phone. On mine you hold down the red and green keys together until she tells you that she is clearing the memory, then she prompts you to pair your phone

Bluetooth not accepting anything


Hi
I was trying to transfer some ringtones from old phone to G1 and facing the same problem.
And now somewhere from net I found the solution to my problem.
Although it could not be done by bluetooth, but my problem is solved now.
You can also try it. It may help you out.

> Transfer ringtones/music/photos from your phone to Desktop
> Connect G1 to Desktop by USB cable
> On the top of G1 screen it will show the icon of USB (connected)
> Scroll down from the icon and select 'copy files from computer'
> Select 'Mount'
> On desktop a massage will appear, click 'open folder & show files'.
> Copy & Paste files from computer to G1. Now your files are in G1
> If you want to set any song as ringtone press & hold that song, a menu will appear and you can select 'set as ringtone'

Almost there gizmo1. In fact one has to go through Connect, Bluetooth then you'll see two tabs. The selected tab has the basic bluetooth options (On/Off, Visibility, name etc) and the second tab shows the list of paired devices. Access this by pressing right.

Once in the list of paired devices Press OPTIONS (normally the left softkey) then "New paired devices". You'll then see what's around and you'll be able to initiate the pairing.

If you're simply looking to send an object, you can do this from the file manager or media library. In the media library select your picture or other object then once again through the left softkey (Options) you should see a "Send" option. Select that, the Nokia will then propose how you wish to send. Choose bluetooth. In the file manager it works in the same way.
