Can't connect my N8 with my computer via Bluetooth. Just got a bluetooth dongle today, and installed it in my computer (ASUS A3H)
The computer finds the phone, and the phone finds the computer, but...
Dear jonaclau. I tried to find some solutions, but i think that this is my best one.
If you connect to the internet through your cell phone as a bluetooth modem it will charge through your cell phone service as a "data call" which unless you have a service plan for doing so charges you insane fees and rates. If you already have a unlimited data plan, which anyone using such services should have, then don't worry about it. It doesn't cost you cell minutes, it costs you data bites which can run much higher on your monthly bill than additional cell minutes do. If you have a data plan with your cell package like I do then congrads, sounds like you can probably get wireless internet access through your cell phone like I do. You'll know if your paying for a data plan because it costs you a noticeable amount extra each month.
Transfering files is easy, ignore the other stuff you got yourself into, set up the trust between the two devices and be sure to password protect the connection. You'll be prompted to initialy set up a password and enter in the same password on both devices.
The rest is so easy it's certain to cause confusion because you'll think it just can't be that easy.
Turn your bluetooth on in your phone if you have an option to turn it on or off, you should.
Turn on the bluetooth in your computer, usually you'll have a bluetooth manager program installed to do so.
Password protect and establish the connection.
