How do I transfer files between my Computer and my Mobile Phone using the Bluetooth Adapter?
Step 1 Please consult with your Mobile Phone’s manufacturer,
make sure your Mobile Phone supports the “Bluetooth Dial-up Networking Service”
and turn on the phone’s “Bluetooth” service.
Below is an example on how to turn on the Mobile Phone’s Bluetooth service
with “Motorola Razor V3” phone.
Step 2 Install the Bluetooth adapter on the Computer according
to the instructions in the Bluetooth Adapter’s Quick Installation Guide. When
the installation is completed, you should see the “Bluetooth” utility icon
in the “Taskbar” on the lower right hand corner of the Windows Desktop. There
should also be a “Bluetooth Utility” shortcut on Windows Desktop screen.
Step 3 Double-click on the Bluetooth utility icon or the
shortcut to open the utility. The example below is using “IVT Corp. BlueSoleil”
utility version 184.108.40.206 with a TBW-101UB (v2) Bluetooth Adapter.
Step 4 After opening the utility it will automatically search
for any available Bluetooth devices nearby. Wait approximately 20 seconds and
the search result will display at the bottom of the utility window.
After the search has completed you can perform the search again by clicking
once on the “Orange Globe” in the center of the utility.
Step 5 In this example, the utility found the new Bluetooth
device “Motorola Phone”. Note: when the utility discovers
a device for the first time, instead of displaying the device name it may display
the MAC Address (i.e. 11:22:33:ab:cd:ef) of the device and the device picture
may not reflect the actual device. The utility may not display the name of
the Bluetooth device, until it is “paired” (bonded) with the device.
Step 6 To pair with the device, from the utility window,
right click on the device, and select “Pair Device”.
Step 7 Enter a passkey of your choice and click “Ok”. You
must use the same passkey on the remote device as well to successfully pair
to that device.
Step 8 On the remote device (i.e. Mobile Phone), you will
see a prompt asking if you would like to “Bond” (pair) to the Computer (SONNY),
Note: when your phone’s Bluetooth service is turned on, anyone
with a Bluetooth device that is within your phone’s Bluetooth signal range
can request to “bond” to your phone. However, you can always “deny” the bond
(pair) request from unrecognized device and turn off the Bluetooth service
when you are not using it.
Step 9 Enter the same “passkey” from Step 7 and
Step 10 When the pairing is successful, in the utility window
you should see a small red “check mark” on the device.
Note: To “Unpair” the devices. From the utility, right
click on the device and select “Unpair” from the dropdown list.
Step 11 After the computer’s Bluetooth adapter is paired
to a Bluetooth device, the available “Services” of the Bluetooth device will
be highlighted with a yellow outline. The example below shows that the Mobile
Phone has three Bluetooth services.
Note: If the utility does not detect any Bluetooth services.
From the utility, right click on the paired Bluetooth device and select “Refresh
Services”. You may need to do this a few times for the utility to discover
the device’s available services.
If the utility is having trouble finding the services, “Un-pair” the device,
“Re-pair” it and then “Refresh Services”.
Step 12 From the utility, click once on the “Bluetooth File
Transfer Service” to connect to the service. You should see the connection
status at the bottom of the Utility.
Step 13 After the service is connected; you should see the
window on the screen showing the shared folders in the Mobile Phone.
Double-click on the file folder to reveal the folder’s contents. You can then
drag a file from your Computer and copy it to the folder in the Mobile Phone.
Or delete the file from the folder.
You can also copy the file(s) from the phone to the computer.
