Hello there, I've browsed through the forum but can't see a solution to my problem.

I've got a Widcomm dongle and have installed the software correctly. I've managed to pair up my phone - N6600, with my PC, however when I try and send a photo from my phone to the PC via Bluetooth I get a 'connecting' message followed by a 'Sending failed' one. I have managed to send a photo from PC to phone so I know that's working, but just not the other way round.

Any ideas where to start to fix this?

Cheers.

Many thanks.

p.s. My PC is Win98se

Open the Widcomm configuration on your computer and make sure the File Transfer and PIM Transfer services are enabled. Also while there check the default folder for File Transfer and see if it does exist on your computer.

YAY! I've done it. Thank you. I thought that the PIM Transfer was enabled because there was a shortcut in My Device so just assumed the PC would be able to receive files, but instead all the 'Received Item' selections were set to 'Do Not Accept'. I've now changed them to Save To Folder and it works!




Now to just get PCSuite to work... ;)

Check out the "bluetooth serial port" if you want to try and make you phone talk to the PC Suite via bluetooth.

HTH,
