  • Hi Jose,

     

    1. Open the Bluetooth File Transfer Wizard (Start->All Programs->Accessories). 

    2. Select Next

    3. Click "Receive a File" then Next

    4. Send a file with your device

  • Hi Kristina,

    thanks for this useful tip. I could not even find it in the Vista Help.

    Can you explain why I always have to go through the wizard to enable the file transfer service?

    I would expect that I could always send a file from my mobile phone to my PC without actually starting the wizard.

    If I do not start the wizard then my mobile phone reports something like" device does not offer any useable servies" .

    Thanks, -Eric

  • I'm having the same issue. I go through the wizzard and send a file from my pc to my mobile and it works fine, but when I attempt to send one from my mobile to my pc I get an error stating "Service Not Supported." Anyone have any ideas?
