How should i send or receive data from other mobile.


  1. Use a cellphone with Bluetooth (wireless connection), or even a USB connection (which is a computer port). These are all good ways to communicate with other devices.
  2. If your computer does not have the hardware for a Bluetooth connection, then buy the adaptor, sometimes called a 'dongle'. The adapter plugs into a USB port. It will be quite cheap, something like 10 to 20 American dollars. This adapter will have software for the connection process, which lets you transfer files from the computer to your phone, and the other way around.
  3. Make sure your computer is equipped with Bluetooth technology (either integrated into the machine or a USB dongle) and active.
  4. Turn on Bluetooth on your mobile device.
  5. Turn on your phone and go into 'Settings' in the Main Menu
  6. Keep going down until you find 'Bluetooth' (Sometimes it may be under 'Connectivity)
  7. Click on it and find 'Turn Bluetooth on' (or something similar) and press 'On'. You can now send and receive files. Once you receive a file, it will most likely be under 'Received Files'. This option can often be found in the Settings or Connectivity menu of your phone.
  8. Pair your computer with your mobile device by making both devices discoverable (also known as visible or unhidden) in the Bluetooth options. Once both are visible, search for Bluetooth devices on your mobile phone
  9. Locate the name of your computer in the results list and select it.
  10. Enter a 4 to 8 digit passcode of your own choosing and press continue.
  11. Once your devices are paired, you can send and receive files.
  12. There are several methods to send a file to your mobile device. One method is to copy the file from your computer, navigate to your mobile device (often found in My Computer or My Bluetooth Places) and then paste the file to the phone. Another option is to right-click on the desired file and select Send To --> Bluetooth Device --> (mobile phone's name).
  13. While the file is being transferred, you should see a progress bar on your computer and/or phone. Once the file is finished transferring, a message stating such should show up on your device's screen.
  14. Find the transferred file on your mobile phone by using the phone's built-in file explorer.

WHEN I WANT TO CONNECT WITH ANOTHER MOBILES BLUETOOTH THEN IT SHOWS NO DEVICE FOUND


Hello,

First, you ensure that your phones bluetooth is on by doing to the settings and turning it on, then you ensure that the bluetooth device of the other device you are trying to send or receive a file from is also turned on, then, you can transfer files.

If it still does not find your bluetooth, you can try to receive a file from the recipient you were trying to share files with, and pair up the devices so you will be able to find bluetooth devices.

Take care
