Mac / Bluetooth / Viewty issues

Hello - just got my Viewty today and have paired it with my iMac, but all I can see on there is my phonebook. I haven't inserted a memory card yet though. I've also changed the phone settings to 'mass storage' to, but it still won't open in finder when I connect via the USB cable.

    My problem is exactly the same! Can't send my pics to my mac, but can send from my mac to the phone. Can someone help?

    Firstly, it is ESSENTIAL that you have an additional memory card inserted into your Viewty - I use a 2gb card.

    Secondly, once you got your memory card inserted, plug your USB lead into your Viewty and Mac. iPhoto will launch automatically. Then open Finder, go to your phone (it'll be listed as unnamed or unknown), and open the photos folder. Drag the photos to the 'photos' tab on the left under 'events'.


    If your photos are stored elsewhere on your phone, you need to move them within your phone before doing the above, to the memory card.

    Post again if you get stuck.

    Sorry - forgot to mention, you need to have your phone setting to 'mass storage'.

    Also - can't get bluetooth to work between my iMac and my Viewty - any suggestions, let me know!

To send a file using Bluetooth to a computer running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, you must enable Bluetooth Sharing in Sharing preferences. By default, Bluetooth Sharing is turned off in Leopard.

  1. On each Mac OS X 10.5-based Mac, from the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Sharing.
  3. Check (click) the "On" box next to Bluetooth Sharing.
  4. Close the Sharing preferences window.`Works perfect

How do i send my lg 990 phonebook to a parrot hands free kit

No one idea of the kit.

First, you will have to disconnect (and not delete) the pairing between the kit and the phone (on the kit settings -> paired device and then select and disconnect).

You go to the phone, you select the contact -> bluetooth option send via bluetooth. (if the phone can sending the whole phone book, you have mark or send whole phonebook).

You can send either one by one or the whole phone book. (I'am not sure if the whole phonebook are possible).

But i do not remember also if this phone has an auto synchro of the phone book, unfortunately with more than 1000 mobiles bluetooth difficult to remember.

I have a LG Vu and I want to use the bluetooth setting to download photos into iPhoto. How can I do this? I have tried and tried to no avail, my imac book still shows no connection. Help me please!

What you do is find the bluetooth symbol at the top of your screen (the background) then go to SETTINGS and then to DEVICE VISIBILITY (should be the very top) hit the ON choick then OK for other bluetooth devices to recognise it. then go back to the MAIN BLUETOOTH MENU (just hit back button) and go to SEARCH NEW DEVICE (second one down) but make sure you are in the same room as your computer to have your phone connect with the computer. That should then find your computer and then REQUEST TO PAIR (just touch the name of your mac) and then ENTER THE CODE (should be four zeros if you didnt change it and do the same thing on your mac then after that just select the photo you want to send and hit SEND VIA BLUETOOTH and select your mac

How to connect the viewty to my imac with bluetooth

is the bluetooth icon in the top menu bar? if it is click on it and is it on? if not click on, then is it discoverable? if not click it on, then scroll down to set up device, making sure the phone is on, this will let you pair the two, then once they are paired there is the send file button. Bear in mind the viewty is a windows device so compatability is limited, pictures and video is fine and mark/space software can help other items.

Can't upload from LG KU990 to my mac

Bluetooth seems to work for both up and downloading. For uploading make sure the two devices recognise each other. Then select the file in the appropriate KU990 folder. Click in the little text box on the bottom left. Select Send then choose bluetooth and your target, which should be your bluetooth equipped mac. To download to the KU990 from Mac select send file in the blue tooth icon menu and proceed logically.
