Q: need help connecting pc to phone via bluetooth

hello all.

Ive been having trouble with my bluetooth connection. Whenever i attempt to double click my phone icon in the devices menu to view its bluetooth connection options, i get a message saying:

"an error occurred when initializing this operation. Try restarting your computer and/or the Bluetooth device. "

so, what i see so far:

-the phone successfully pairs with my computer
-each device can see each other

but they cannot interact.

the phone however will connect and interact with other bluetooth devices.

ive double checked many times, my drivers are all there and up to date.
(also used driver genius to check this)

also, whenever i start my computer, i always get the message: "ERROR: unable to start bluetooth stack service"

any ideas what's going on here?

thanks.

my system specs:

dell studio 1555
windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, build 7600

phone: verizon samsung intensity

I recently updated to windows 10 but the Bluetooth is not working properly. It doesn't connect to my phone to playing music on my laptop.  I've uninstalled and deleted the driver from device manager and then reinstalled the driver from Dell's official site several times but nothing works. My windows 10 OS is up to date with anniversary update.

Hi...

I have a Dell XPS M1330, the bluetooth drivers of which were detected automatically by Windows Update during installation of Win 7 (Dell Truemobile 355 Module + EDR along with Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator).

In XP, there was an option of 'My Bluetooth Places' from where I could connect using 'Obex File Transfer' to my Sony Ericsson W890i, and could use it like any other drive for transfer of files to and from it.

Is this not possible under Windows 7? How do I explore my phone via bluetooth?

Hi, I'm new to these forums, hope some one can advise.

I have just installed the new RC version of Win 7 and getting to grips with it and along the way discovering which software or existing applications will run on/with the new OS, so far not that many problems and Win 7 has XP mode/virtulisation, a very good application but something to be wary of IMO.

My problem lays with my Nokia N 95 8gb phone.

There are no more firmware updates for my phone, but I use the Nokia software to make back ups of my phone contents to my PC, again no problems, under Windows XP home or under Win 7.

I have the most recent Nokia software but am running into problems under Win 7, my Belkin bluetooth dongle and my phone can no longer find each other.

What I do get sometimes is a window informing me some Bluetooth peripheral is missing or can't be found, basically there are some drivers missing but I'm not sure if it's in the nokia software/updater or Win 7, iIf I try to update drivers, I can't boxes are greyed out.

The next issue and I guess connected to the above and a lot more troublesome for me is I use my phone a lot as a camera and upload my pictures using a Belkin Bluetooth dongle, never had a problem until today,

I can not get the phone to recognise or connect to the dongle or vice versa under WIN 7, I cannot transfer a photo from my phone to my PC using Bluetooth, the phone informs me of a failed connection.

The dongle firmware has been updated.

Is there one standard blue tooth that can work with most all cell phones?

If not, what is the best out there, where do you get them, and what price did you pay?

Thanks!
 

A:What is the best bluetooth to get for a cell phone?

Hi

I assume you mean a Blue tooth Headset, if so prices will vary from how they look to who makes them and how long you get on things like standby time and talk time, i was bought a plantronics one by the kids for xmas and it works great and lasts for a long time and it was about Ģ20.

If however you want to pose with a designer model then expect to pay upto Ģ100 for one.

Ask around the people you know who have one and see what they say.

As I understand it, I should be able to link my new Win8 touch screen notebook (Asus X202e) with my Android cel phone (Moto Droid X2) so that I can quickly and easily exchange photos and files - I think I should be able to see the entire contents of one device on the other?

Anyway, I've successfully set up my Bluetooth, 'found' my cel phone, paired it to my PC and made the connection. I can 'see' the phone on the computer (Win8 says it's working correctly) but I can't see anything on the phone on my PC nor the other way round

I watched a simple 'how to' on Youtube and it showed a desktop icon for the phone and when they clicked on that it showed every folder on the phone and you could search through the phone on your desktop and request any file you liked to be transferred. I don't have that icon, nor can I figure out how to create it. I found the shared folders, but they are empty, probably because I can't figure out how to transfer anything from PC to phone or the other way

TIA for any tips - Obviously, I'm overlooking something simple, as usual!

I have a different Android phone than your's .
With that said when your phone is paired with the computer you can transfer file's between each other but to look threw all the folders and stuff on the phone with your computer you will need some software on the phone , with that said I use a program called Webkey for Android it works with the browser on your computer but I think you have to have your phone rooted to use it, there are other app's on the Google play store that do the same thing

Oh to transfer file's with no app . On your computer right click on a file that you want on the phone and pick "send to" and one of the options will be "send to bluetooth" (or something looking similar to that) and on your phone long press on the file you want send to the computer and something similar will come up . It's been a while since I have had to do that I can't think of the name right now. As long as you are paired this should work

Set your phone up as a "hotspot" then on your wireless connections on your laptop you will see the name of your phone as a wireless connection ... connect to this which will then give you internet access, make sure your phone provider doesn't charge you extra for "tethering"

I have a Centrino laptop running Win XP Pro and a mobile phone (Sony Ericsson T39m...yeah, I know it's a bit old now but it's small and it works), both with IR and bluetooth capability.

Firstly, could someone run through how to set up a bluetooth connection so I can synch my Outlook 2000 contacts with the phone. I have done this once before but can't remember how I did it (which is very frustrating) and I had to completely re-install the OS so any settings I'd originally slaved over have disappeared.

Secondly, on many occasions when I need to connect to the internet there's no wifi access, so it would be useful to connect via the mobile phone. How do I set up the IR and bluetooth connections to allow this - using both dial-up modem access and GPS/GPRS access.

I've followed various instructions (that's a slightly generous description) in the phone and laptop manuals but can't seem to get it to work.

Many thanks.

I hope I have the right forum here.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 that I recently clean installed windows vista on after getting a bad Trojan Horse.

Since the clean install, I've been unable to send pictures from my phone via bluetooth to my computer. I was able to do this before the clean install.

I have "allow bluetooth devices to connect to this computer" checked as well as "allow bluetooth devices to find this computer". My phone also shows up in my devices under network and sharing......bluetooth.

I have everything set up. My phone is paired with my computer but when I try to send a picture from phone to comp via bluetooth, I get the message on my phone "transfer failed".

I also have NIS 2009 on this laptop and connect through a wireless router. The only difference from before the clean install as far as the router is concerned is that I now have the router secured using WPA-2. I have no idea if that would effect bluetooth at all but I would assume not.

Okay so my friend's using TELUS for his cell phone service, but I'm using Rogers. He said he's limited on using the Bluetooth because TELUS & Rogers both "locked" it so you can't transfer certain files like Ring Tones - and I overheard some people saying because of this lock, TELUS cannot recieve any media files from a Roger's bluetooth & vice-versa.

If this is true (which I hope it isn't - I haven't had time to meet up with that friend to test), is there any way to unlock it? I'd love to share some pictures & ringtones w/ my friends. And put in some custom wallpaper on my phone too.

On my Vista 64 bit laptop I'm able to browse files on my Motorola Hint using Bluetooth 2.1 However on my Win7 Home Premium 32 bit netbook, I don't have that option. Both are using Widcomm Bluetooth software and both are Bluetooth 2.1.

Notice the difference in operating systems from the attachments.

I suspect it has something to do with the fact that Widcomm/Broadcom don't have any updated Windows 7 drivers.

Has anyone been able to successfully browse files from their phone using the Widcomm/Broadcom Bluetooth stack? Is there another Bluetooth stack that works better?

Just to get it out of the way: I have embedded Bluetooth in my laptop working fine, and Windows pairs with the CU500 and detects its modem fine. It can dial the magic number, *99***1#, but it gives the generic Error 720: "A connection to the remote computer could not be established."

I've managed to get this same connection working in Ubuntu-- thanks to this page's pppd settings and dial-up script -- but Windows of course uses a completely different scripting syntax, so I can't re-use that.

My phone's Cingular-branded(which obviously is AT&T now, but I found these first), so I entered these in Windows' Dial-up connection:
user name: [email protected]
password: cingular1

But, since I get an Error 720 if I just try dialing *99***1# with those credentials, I have to tell it I want the APN "wap.cingular" somehow, too. I think checking the "Run script" option under the 'Security' tab in the Dial-up connection's Properties is my best bet, but I don't know how to write one.

I have a Rocketfish micro bluetooth adapter (RF-MRBTAD) in a USB port on my PC. Both my wife and I have the same flip phone (LG Fluid AN-160). Both phones were pairing to the PC back in the spring and some photo's were sent from the phones to the PC. (Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit)

A couple of days ago, while loading the boat on the trailer, my phone fell out and into the water. After retrieving it, wasn't working too good. Got a new one (same model) from CSpire (I'm in south MS). Now I can't get the new phone to pair with PC.

I keep the bluetooth adapter turned off when not in use. After turning it on and powering on the bluetooth on the phone, making the phone visible, the PC cannot find it. Doing a search for devices from the phone does find the PC but when I try to pair the phone to the PC all I get is an error msg saying "the device pairing failed". My wife's phone will still pair just fine and send photos to the PC.

I'm kind of at a loss about what to do now??????

If anything i would try deleting the old phone from the devices list and re-adding it; letting windows search for it and see if it works that way. It it doesnt; then there could be a glitch with either the bluetooth adapter or with the new phone itself you got(as much as i hate to say that; yes it can happen especially in this day and age).

Received an iPhone 4 S. D/loaded iTunes (for 64bit) and installed.
Connected phone via usb port.
iTunes does not show phone icon; no connection or synchronisation can occur.

I have spent ages looking on the Apple site (boy they are tricky over there!) and the trouble shooter offered didn't help.

This must be a common problem, other must have come upon it.
As far as I can tell it's a conflict problem possible with anti virus (MSE).

What I don't know how to do is: -properly test the usb port (which works fine for remote mouse plug in, any temporary flash drives via a hub) and
- test for what is preventing the two from recognising one another.

If you have met this problem and can recommend a way to address it then 3 hearty cheers!

Not sure if this is the right subforum.
 
I contacted Samsung and they were no help. I sent them a reply, but in the mean time I am trying here.
 
My message to them is as follows:
 
I'm having trouble using Bluetooth in Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit with my S4. When I go to the My Computer icon and try to open my phone it won't let me. I can play music, etc just can't access the files on the phone through Bluetooth. I see in device manager on my laptop that there are two drivers missing for Other Devices |  Bluetooth Peripheral Device. I have the following hardware IDs:
BTHENUM\{936da01f-9abd-4d9d-80c7-02af85c822a8}_VID&00010075_PID&0100
BTHENUM\{936da01f-9abd-4d9d-80c7-02af85c822a8}_LOCALMFG&000f
BTHENUM\{453994d5-d58b-96f9-6616-b37f586ba2ec}_VID&00010075_PID&0100
BTHENUM\{453994d5-d58b-96f9-6616-b37f586ba2ec}_LOCALMFG&000f
My Bluetooth adapter is USB and it is a BCM 20702 Bluetooth 4.0
 

 
 
What I'm trying to do is read the files on my phone in my computer with Bluetooth. See attached images. TIA!
 
Edit- I should mention that I installed a very large Bluetooth driver package from HP for the Broadcom Bluetooth USB adapter I have hoping that would fix the problem. No joy.

Using Lenovo thinkpad r61 and Windows XP. Bluetooth peripheral works great with mouse & keyboard. It used to work great to send & receive files from Samsung Sync SGH A707C. Now, when I try to send or receive a file from phone to laptop, I get a message: file transfer not successful, an address incompatible with the requested protocol was used. My cell phone is recognized as a bluetooth device & I've been thru the set-up several times. What could I be missing here? There just doesn't seem to be a connection. Thanks for any help!

how do i connect a cell phone with bluetooth to a laptop with bluetooth?
 

A:how do i connect a bluetooth cell phone to laptops?

What OS? In windows you simply set your cell phone to discoverable in the bluetooth settings and then in your bluetooth places you discover devices. It should walk you through the pairing process from there.

I think you'd be ok with just about anything really. Head to a electronic stores and pick one up there fore cheap. If you don't like it, return it. Most stores here in the states have decent return policies with items like that.

Hi,

I?m trying to connect my Samsung Galaxy S III to my new Asus LX302L via bluetooth.
Both have bluetooth vers. 4 and I have successfully connected other units to my phone earlier but now it doesn't work.

I can "see" both units and they are linked together via password but that's it.
After I linked them together, the status information on the computer says "Not connectet" for the phone. The same information is the phone saying about the computer.
All drivers are up to date.

I want to use my phone as a remote using "Unified remote" and I also want to play music via the phone out to the computer speakers. This I have been able to do with my old computer (windows 7) but now it doesn't work.

What should I do?

Best regards,
David

Hi falkenow And Welcome To Eight Forums,
First Thing we have to check is see if the "Bluetooth Support Service" is running and set to "Automatic" by going to services.msc in the search.
