I can't seem to get my Macbook Pro 13" 2.26Ghz (OS 10.5.7) connect to my iPhone 3G (OS 3.0) via bluetooth. In the Bluetooth Setup Assistant the macbook sees the iPhone 3G, but they don't connect after I accept the connect on the iPhone 3G. The codes on the Macbook and iPhone are the same and, therefore, should connect.
I've searched the Apple Discussions (support) but there is no answer there.
The iPhone is recognized but I can not get a connection. It says Bluetooth connection is not available. When I look at the network prefs, The "Bluetooth PAN" says not connected and will not connect. They are on the same router and my Bluetooth mouse works fine. I simply can not get them to pair. Advanced for Bluetooth PAN has to configure using DCHP for IPv4 and Automatically for IPv6. Nothing else is on that sheet. This is a late 2012 iMac. New iPhone 5 (warranty replacement). Phone shows it's on my network. Checked computer and it's on my network.
Info: iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2012), OS X Yosemite (10.10)
This isn't directly related to macbooks but if I want to use the bluetooth built into my computer to connect to my non bluetooth printer can I buy any USB bluetooth dongle to plug into the printer ( Kodak all in one 5300) or do I need some specific kind? All the ones I look at don't mention anything about printers just connection between computers and phones.
I'm trying to connect my iPhone to my new mbp via bluetooth. The ultimate goal is being able to tether, using my different carrier profile that I have (4.0 maybe?). The thing I don't understand is that this worked legitimately like last week and then I got a new hdd and it now doesn't connect via bluetooth. If I go through the set up assistant, I can get the devices paired, but on both my computer and my iphone it says the devices are not "connected". If, on my iphone I click on MacBook Pro - Not Connected" I can see on my computer that it is connected for about 3 seconds and then it goes back to not being connected.
i am using macbook air and i wanna sync my iphone 3g by using bluetooth. But it seems i cant connect it. From Iphone , how do u send a pictures or music using bluettooth to my MBA or other mobile phone?
when my macbook discovers my iphone and i pair them via the numerical code i get a message saying tht the macbook is not supported. iPhone is a 4S and the MacBook is MacBook Pro 15' only a week old running OS X Lion 10.7.3
Info: iPhone 4S, Mac OS X (10.7.3), MacBook Pro 15' running OS X Lion
How is it that Apple didn't fix this? I have all the current software and hardware and there is no way that Apple didn't foresee people wanting to use applications to sync and work across platforms with their $3000 investment in Apple products.
I am having trouble with the bluetooth on my MacBook Retina Display (software is up to date). My MacBook will not connect to my iPhone 5, nor will it connect to the bluetooth headphones I just purchased (Sony MDR-XB950BT). When I try to pair the devices to my MacBook, nothing comes up in the field of recognized devices, except for other laptops around me. Sometimes, my iPhone will show up quickly but then it will say the pair was unsuccessful. My headphones have never appeared on the devices list. However, I can connect my headphones to my iPhone perfectly fine.
I bought two track pads to use with my Lion OS on my MBP. One for the home and one for the office. The first one I set up was flawless. When I tried to repeate with the second one it would not connect. I tried to rename the first and the new name was accepted in the preference list but the details kept the old name.
If there's actually anyone who uses bluetooth headphones and a bluetooth mouse at the same time....
do you experience any choppy lag on the mouse when you have both connected?
the audio seems to not have any issues, but the mouse seems to skip alittle bit hear and there. its not unbearable and it's still usable, but you do notice it. it works like normal when obviously the headphones are disconnected.
My MBA has started giving an error that it cannot find a bluetooth keyboard everytime it boots up. The keyboard and trackpad on the MBA are not working at all now. I have never added a bluetooth keyboard and don't have one. I am now unable to login and change any settings or disable bluetooth.
I am not sure what changed for this to start happening. Is there any way to disable bluetooth with hardwre buttons?
I am having trouble connecting my iPhone to my MBP via Bluetooth. Both devices are paired, I have entered the code that the MBP has asked me to input into the iPhone. Both devices are paired to each other yet they are not connected. For the most part I have never had any kind of luck using bluetooth on any device except for the Mighty Mouse I just bought.
Ok so we've all heard about the issues with airport on the MacBook. Well I've had mine for about 3 yrs now and this problem with airport wifi connection has progressively been getting worse over the last yr. I took the MacBook in last week and they wanted �170 to put in a new network card and antena. Bit much I think.! So they told me I could buy a �35 USB wifi dongle thing.
I currently own one of the first iMacs built in 2006 that were originally built for the education sector. This model doesn't have a Bluetooth card so obviously I can't use any wireless peripherals with it. But my question is whether I can use my iPhone 4 as a substitute. Is there any way to pair the iPhone with my iMac and use it as a Bluetooth access point?I'm planning on getting a Magic Trackpad for it and I don't really want to buy an adapter if I can somehow do this.
Info: iMac 1.83Ghz, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Combo Drive
Is there a way of using my Orange Samsung D600e to allow my Powerbook to surf the net when wifi isn't present. I've heard bits about using it via GPRS.So far I've managed to browse certain files from my Mac on the phone but I really wan't to be able to switch off airport and get a connection via my mobile. Any tips? Is it possible?I also have an old Nokia 6230e handset
What I wanted to know was if there is some kind of way of connecting a phone to a computer via bluetooth, but make the computer think it is connected via USB? Like, if it could have a virtual USB device which comes from the phone via bluetooth. I know it sounds stupid and useless, but my phone's USB connection is broken. I can iSync via Bluetooth but I would like to use software like Salling Media Sync or doubleTwist to transfer and sync music, but neither have a bluetooth option.
I have a new Jabra bluetooth headset and hoped I could pair it with my iMac. Nothing works. I see other colleague's desktops and devices (including smartphones) that show up in Bluetooth setup. But after two weeks of trying everything I could think of, I've failed.
