Question about Apple iPhone (16 GB) Smartphone

1 Answer

I am trying to use my iphone 4's Internet Tethering capability to connect my desk top to the Internet through bluetooth. To accomplish this, I am using a USB, HAMA, Class 2 device. I go through the required process no problem, i.e., (1) adding my iphone to the bluetooth devices, (2) select it (here my iphone generates a code that I am required to enter, and "pair" it)onece this is done, it creates a PAN Network Access Profile, Network Access Point, but when I want to connect to the Internet. My iphone is asking for a PIN Code again. I have no idea of why or what PIN Code should I tap in, since I don't even know if it refers to the bluetooth device or my desk top? When I have tried different combination that default for bluetooth devices, like 1234 or 0000 or 9999, none of them works, and an error message comes up, saying that, "Make sure "PC" is ready to pair, the PIN Code is correct, and try again". Question why doesn't it connect? What PIN Code should I enter here? The bluetooth or my desk top? This bluetooth device's PIN Code is either 1234 or 0000 by default, but these combinations do not work either! And do not believe that my desk top has a PIN Code! So how can I use my iphone to connect through bluetooth? I don't want to use the USB cable all the time I want to go to the Internet.

Can a desktop with wondows 10 get internet access with a bluetooth phone

If your smart phone has Wi-Fi tethering capability, and your plan allows for significant data, you can connect a laptop to it, OR a desktop with a simple USB Wi-Fi adapter.

Bluetooth is not part of the requirements to do this.

I do not have the manual and do not know how to connect my iphone 4 to a Wansun Bluetooth hands free speakerphone visor kit.

Standard Bluetooth speakers you just hold the power button on til the blue light flashes.

Once that's accomplished, it's in pairing mode.

Go into the setting in your iphone and turn on bluetooth. It should then find all items waiting to be paired.

Click on the speaker, if it prompts you for a code it's standard four zero's 0000 and it should connect and work.

Bluetooth not working

how is it not working? the bluetooth of the iphone is only for pairing to a computer if you're going to use internet tethering or pairing with an accessory. but if you're going to transfer a file, it is not built that way. but if you will install a 3rd party app, you will be able to transfer photos to other iphones

Your other computer is expecting to see a wireless network, and the SSID is the wireless network 'name'. You probably need to reset this to go to the internet via your mobile rather than the wireless network.

It would be best to use a cable between the acer and the iphone, or bluetooth might be a better option.

The cable will be the best way, if you want wireless go bluetooth.

This works around the WIFI network issue your having.

I can not set bluetooth on , it always on serarch status

You can only connect bluetooth headsets (or laptops if internet tethering is available) to your iPhone, so it will keep searching for only those. Other phones will not be visible.
