How do I turn on the Bluetooth for my Dell Inspiron M5030?

I'd like to be able to share files between my computer and my cellphone. The cell phone has Bluetooth and I know how to turn it on and use it, I just can't figure out how I can turn on the Bluetooth for the computer.

Is the computer Bluetooth capable and does it have bluetooth software installed? Most times there will be a switch on the computer to turn on bluetooth or you'll have to hit a sequence of keys.

If there is no bluetooth installed or it is not bluetooth capable, buy a usb bluetooth adapter and plug it into one of the usb ports. It will come with software and drivers.

  • You can find bluetooth usb adapter from for under $25. Just put "bluetooth usb adapter" (without the quotes) in the white search box when the site comes up and press GO

Bluetooth in iphone

You must turn on bluetooth in your cellphone in connection setting first, then turn on also the bluetooth in the other device, if done try to search bluetooth device in your area using cellphone..until it detects the device you want to share files with.
you must enter the same code on each device if required then now you can share files ..
