I'm a newbie here, and in a desperate need for some advice:( I have recently bought a Bluetooth adapter, installation went well, it found the other bluetooth device (LG Shine KU970) and connected. However, when I tried to transfer some photos from my phone to laptop connection dropped and it has done so ever since. I really don't know what to do!? Both devices are working properly, but transfer connection just can't be established...
Can anyone help me with this matter???

I'm no expert on such things, however I did have a LG 'Shine' for a couple of weeks and had no end of problems with the Bluetooth functionality (or lack of). Tried syncing it with iSync on the Mac...turns out it's not supported as it doesn't use a certain version of storing contacts (vcf?), so that didn't work at all. Managed to get round that by exporting all my contacts as a file and transferring via Bluetooth, however that proved more difficult that it seemed. It would transfer the 100Kb file about 50% then it would drop the connection...tried sending photos with the same result (tried a different Mac computer with the same issue experienced). Eventually it all went across after numerous resets etc....I think it was just blind luck it all transferred.

Nice phone apart from that...however the contact sync issue was too great so luckily for me Apple released the iPhone 3G and I jumped problems since!
