Question about Samsung Cell Phones

6 Answers

I have a Samsung A707 phone. In the past, I've been able to send images to my phone to my MacBook Pro without a problem. Now I just get a "Sending Failed" error whenever I try to send a file. I've checked both my laptop and my phone. They're both showing as being successfully paired. Any ideas about something else to try to get it to work? Thanks in advance!

    Okay. I disconnected the phone and the laptop and went thru the process of reconnecting and it still doesn't work. There is no Samsung driver loaded on my Mac (couldn't find one anyway) so there's nothing to uninstall.

    The odd thing is that when I choose to "Browse Device(s)" via my laptop I can see the phone and navigate to the Graphics folder. However, once there I can only see photos I took last year. I can't see any of my more recent photos. These photos are the ones that I'm trying to send to the laptop.

    I was able to send a file from my laptop to the phone. But not the other way around. And when I tried sending the same image back to the laptop the connection failed (as it always does).

    Any other ideas?

    I'm still getting a Connection Failed error message. I've paired my phone with the laptop without trouble. I've also paired a different phone with the laptop and no problem. The problem is when I try to send something from my phone to the laptop. I've also paired the phone to another laptop -- still no problem with pairing.


    One thing that's really curious is the fact that when I log onto the phone remotely (via my laptop) I can see JPGs of images I took with my previous mobile phone. However, when I look for images I've taken with this phone I can't see them via the laptop. The only way I can see the new images is via the phone.


    I can send photos to other phones via text messaging without a problem


    I thought that maybe the file size was a problem so I took some photos at the lowest resolution possible and still got the Connection Failed error message.


    I have a USB cable for the phone but I don't have a PC and Samsung only provides support via a cable for PCs -- otherwise, I'd try that approach as well. 


    Can you think of something else I should try?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

This can be a problem with the Bluetooth technology compatibility , because not all bluetooth devices are using the same type and it will result to this kind of problem, it will just better if you can just transfer a file using a USB connection..

Good luck.........

Remove the old pairing , even if it seems to work and do pairing again, sometimes it works.

    also make sure that the file u r sending is compatible with ur phone

    also try sending a file of smaller size.

    get back to us with the problem if it does not get resolved.


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 19, 2008

    yes

    with out a driver for MAC u cant send files from ur phone to mac.

    but only feasible solution is using a blue tooth to do it.

    that is the only possible solution i guess
    because there is no driver for mac for ur phone.

    Not compatible with Mac computers, September 30, 2007







    By
    Lori (Oklahoma City, OK) - See all my reviews

    Well, it will charge my phone through USB, but the sync cable is
    useless for data transfer on a Mac. Samsung has no software drivers to
    enable it to work. Everything must be transfered via bluetooth.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 19, 2008

    also another proff saying that it does not work with mac.

    see this link.

    look at the section compatibles

    COMPATIBILITY: Samsung T509, Samsung T519, Samsung T629, Samsung i607, Samsung D807, Samsung T809/D820, Samsung A707 SYNC, Samsung D900
    NOTE: Not MAC OS Compatible and downloading images may not be available on certain handset models.




    hope i have guided u the right way.


    dont forget to accept the solution if u go by it.


    thank you


    good luck


    have a great day. bye

It just started happening huh? Have you tried restoring your computer back to a point when this was working. I would also try disconnecting the devices and reconnecting them via bluetooth. If both of the above options fail, then try uninstalling the driver on the computer and reinstalling it from the Samsung Website. If that fails, then contact Samsung.

Let me know how this all goes and whether you have any further questions and I would be glad to help

good luck

Frozen a707


What exactly do you mean by frozen? Is the phone locked up, or does it say "phone freeze"?

If it says phone freeze, there's nothing anyone can do. The phone permanently locks itself up if an unlock code is entered incorrectly too many times. The only option then would be to send the phone back to Samsung for new software, or if you know of anyone that can flash that phone.

Sim card transfer


depends on the phone you are using to transfer from. On my sony, for example, i can go to my contact list options and send contacts via bluetooth to another device.

Which phone are you sending from?
