Ok im so frustrated with this s4 and I have not even had it a week!! I'm trying to send a music file to a galaxy note 2. I have checked settings time and time again. If I send it bluetooth it scans for devices and ALWAYS comes up with no devices. .. even though I'm paired with a device. If I Try and send it via sbeam it makes the chime noise but that's it.
What is the best way way to send files vía Bluetooth from the phone to the computer / Notebook (and vice versa)?
It appears to be a bit inconvenient, to receive files from the phone you first have to open this Bluetooth dialog (instead of to just receive a file or more), sometimes it works, sometimes it does not.
Is there an icon / a shortcut for the phone / Windows to simplify it?
I have the motorola S805 bluetooth headphones.
when I first got my Bionic I paired it with the S805s and it would automatically connect to the phone as well as the google music beta app each time I turned on the BT.
now for some reason it will not automatically connect. I have to go into settings and click on the S805 and tell it to connect. When it does it only connects to the music player.
I just picked up the note 2 after a long history with HTC phones. With the HTC phones once I paired my vehicle's radio with the phone, the bluetooth would automatically connect and disconnect when I turned the bluetooth on or off on the phone. I have noticed with the note 2 that I have to press connect on the phone every time I turn the bluetooth on.
I flashed my epic to boost like 6 months ago. Due to an accidental deletion, my phone had to be reset. Now I am unable to send pics. I can receive them, though. I can get on the net, make and receive calls, everything except send pics. I downloaded an app that allows the pics to be sent but its just kind of a pain. Anyway, I was wondering how can I solve this issue?
I seem to be having the same issue as well on my laptop, my bluetooth is identified in dmesg as atheros. However bluetooth has never ever worked in Ubuntu, in Chakra it connects to my SONY phone but the later shows message connected not paired and no files can be sent or received.
