It is setup to only connect to a headset not your PC

    This may or may not be accurate, depending on what version of the Apple OS you have installed on the iPhones 3G. The initial OS on the 3G only supported Handsfree (connected to a headset or car kit) and PBAP (for phone book transfer). If you have updated it to OS 4, I now also supports PAN and A2DP (for stereo streaming). PAN should allow you to connect to your PC, BUT.... There is an issue with updating the 3G, in particular, with the OS 4, in that the phone seems to not be able to be discovered by a device. You would need to find the PC by letting the phone search for it. And then continuing to pair that way. Please let me know if this helps or where exactly you are seeing the issue.

Cant connect the sony rdp-x60ip to my computer via bluetooth


Press and hold the bluetooth button until it beeps, then it knows its looking for a new device.
When it is just flashing it is looking for a device it already knows.
Once connected it will stay on.

Hello...i am using sony ericsson k550 i had a trouble in that i cant send any files through bluetooth my bluetooth is not working pls any one tell how to solve this prob


Make sure your phone and the other Bluetooth device are charged, switched on and within range of each other. Make sure Bluetooth wireless technology is turned on, and that the devices are set to be visible for other Bluetooth devices. Check that the two devices are paired, and have found each other. If there are still problems, you'll have to reset the connection and pair the two devices again.

In some Bluetooth installations, you must activate a COM port manually in your computer. This is done differently for different brands and models of Bluetooth devices. Please see the manufacturer's product documentation.

If a COM port is not activated

1. In many cases, you can right-click on your phone icon in the window where all found Bluetooth devices are shown, and select a 'COM port activation' item in the menu. Make a note of the COM port number of the activated port.
2. Open Sony Ericsson PC Suite and click Tools/Phone Monitor Options.../Com Ports. Enable the COM port you activated in step 1.
3. Keep the Bluetooth wireless technology turned on in your phone, restart the computer and try to connect again.

I don't know how can i use my computer's blue


We need to enable bluetooth and then we need to make the bluetooth your laptop and the other bluetooth device discoverable.
Now you will have to pair these devices and after pairing the devices and establishing the connection between the two devices, you will able to transfer files from one bluetooth device to another bluetooth device provided both of them are in less than 5 meter range.

Bluetooth hook up


You have to pair your device. Turn the bluetooth off, and then hold the power button down until the bluetooth blinks. Usually blue and red. As soon as it starts blinking go to the bluetooth menu on your phone and search for all devices. When you see your bluetooth click connect and it should ask for the pw 0000. type it in and then your bluetooth should connect. make sure your phone and bluetooth are fully charged. let me know if that worked.

Connecting to my motorola cell phone


According to some trouble indicated by another person, the unit must be fully charged to make the initial connection.

I didn't experience any trouble myself. However, I recommend the following:
  • Make sure Bluetooth is turned on for your phone.
    For security reasons some cellular phones will force you to turn on Bluetooth each time you turn on your phone.
  • If your cellular phone prompts you for anything when trying to connect, try entering "0000".
  • Make sure the headset is turned on before you try to find it with the phone.
    The blue LED on the headset should have a slow, steady blink when the unit is on. If it's not, hold down the large button until the blue LED flashes rapidly.
  • Try connecting while the headset is connected to the power adapter.

Cant pair my bluetooth


To identify where the problem is, try connecting another bluetooth device (like another phone, or a bluetooth headset). The other device will most likely connect. If it does, try contacting the manufacturer of the dongle, they will probably have a simple solution to fix it.

If it does not connect to another device, try deleting the bluetooth devices stored in phone (especially ones you dont use, but you may need to delete more/all depending on the situation) and add then. This fixes connection issues the majority of the time with very little trouble since rebonding what you need later is a simple task.
