May 12, 2010

I've done this many times in the past.

The phone and the mac connected ok via bluetooth, and I inputted the code that comes up on the screen. After which the the connection 'failed'.

I then tried another mobile phone, and the connection failed on that too. The thing is I've used both phones before to transfer files to the Mac Pro.

Applications :: Send SMS From Mac Via My Mobile / Cell Phone Number?

Oct 31, 2010

I'm looking for a program/app that will allow me to primarily send SMS from my Mac using my current phone number. Does anyone know if anything like this exists? I can only think of something like this working in one of two ways: Sending an SMS composed on my Mac through my mobile/cell, via Bluetooth or some other method? OR Using software that emulates my mobile number to compose and send SMS?

I remember back in the day you could actually email an SMS to a phone by using their mobile number as a username and their network as the domain - e.g. 07123456789@orange.net. Unfortunately, because pretty much all the networks now provide email services too, doing that nowadays means they will actually receive an email at their online account instead of their SMS inbox.......................

MacBook :: Can't Connect To Internet With Tethered Cell Phone

Dec 29, 2009

I am in India with a cell phone that has an unlimited data plan and legally allows tethering and has blue tooth. I am trying to connect to the Internet through the cell phone using blue tooth to my Macbook. I can "pair" with the cell phone but cannot connect. My new Macbook is running Snow Leopard

I can see the Nokia 7210 by clicking on the bluetooth icon upper right on the Mac. I can see the Macbook in the cellphone and click on connect in the cell phone.

Then the cell phone says "connecting to Macbook" followed by "service not supported by other device".

I have clicked on every combination I can find in blue tooth preferences on the Mac but can't get it to connect. Under blue tooth in the Mac it says paired but not connected.

Sometimes the Mac asks for a user name and pass code for the cell phone and it also asks for APN whatever that is. The owner of this cell phone tells me there isn't any username or passcode necessary and he has successfully connected through Windows notebooks without so using.

Hardware :: Sync ICal With An LG EnV Touch Cell Phone?

Oct 4, 2009

I'm looking at getting my wife an LG enV Touch cell phone and wanted to know if her contacts and calendar info on our Mac could be synced to the phone.

Can anyone let me know if this is possible? I can't find anything online saying it is or it isn't possible, so I just don't know. The person at the store is not very helpful here either.

OS X :: Bizarre Occurrence - Cell Phone Ringtone Coming Through Macbook Speakers

Apr 17, 2010

I'm using a Macbook pro OSX 10.4 Tiger, and have been experiencing a very bizarre, spooky, specter-like occurrence happening as of late when I watch streaming videos off common site such as Hulu. I'm using the newest version of Firefox and my roommates and I have wireless internet with various routers rigged sort of haphazardly throughout the apartment. Sometimes whenever my cellphone alarm goes off, or an incoming call comes in, the ringtone will come through the speakers of my computer! This takes place even if I'm on a different floor or in another room. It has even happened when my cellphone is put to silent! Can anyone explain or speculate why this is happening? It always freaks me out, and won't go away unless I close the video or browser.

MacBook Pro :: Syncing The Contact Information From Samsung Evergreen A667 Cell Phone

Nov 11, 2010

My previous phone literally broke and I didn't back up my contacts. So I'm retyping them. I don't want to make that mistake twice.

I plugged in the phone to my MBP but I have no idea what to do.

My phone prompts me to choose Media Player, PC Studio, or Mass Storage. I don't have Media Player. So which do I pick and then what to do on the MBP?

Applications :: .3g2 (3gpp2) File Converter To Import Video From Cell Phone To Imovie

Apr 16, 2009

get video recorded from my cell phone (motoroala Hint) imported into imovie so I can edit the video and merge clips. The file extension of the video file is .3g2 . Quicktime will play this video, but imovie apparently does not support it. I have found a number of different video apps by searching forums (iskysoft imedia converter, handbreak, mpeg streamclip, applemacsoft video converter) of which only iskysoft imedia converter does what I want to do. The only problem is the trial version does not convert audio and has "evaluation copy" imprinted into the video. The full version costs $50

I'm on holiday using my mobile phone (Nokia N80) to connect to the Internet over GPRS / EDGE / UMTS. Everything works like a charm, but often the Internet Connect applet drops the connection and just hangs disconnecting.

Applications :: Sync Mail With Mobile Phone / Ical Does Not Represent My Calendar In Entourage

Jan 12, 2010

So, i have been using entourage for a couple of years and had no problems. I now want to sync my mail and calendars with my new phone (Nokia N97 mini). To do this I believe I have to use Isync, so I have set the sync services preferences in entourage to 'sync events and tasks with ical and .Mac'.

I have a few queries:

1. when I do this my calendar in ical does not represent my calendar in entourage - there are additional events in the ical calendar (it doesnt recognise that these have been deleted from entourage). Ical is also set to sync with mobile me and that has the same additional events as ical.

2. in ical it says I have 2 calendars 'entourage' and 'entourage 2' however 'entourage' doesnt have any events on it. So I deleted it but it just keeps coming back

IMac :: Connecting To Www From Bluetooth Mobile

Oct 1, 2009

I have a Nokia 6303 moby with bluetooth. When I try to connect to the internet with it (sitting in front of the mac with the phone), I get the message about 'subscribe to packet data first'. Followed by 'link not available'. I am with Vodaphone in the uk. I believe I have set the correct information up in the phone settings, and the iMac can see the phone and vice versa. Indeed, I can send files between the two devices, but no t'internet. Should I be paying a subscription to the phone company for the service, does anyone know? The help files at Vodaphone just loop me back to the help screens on their website which doesn't seem to answer the 'packet data' question.

OS X :: Bluetooth Transfer To LG Phone Blocked

Feb 2, 2010

Until the recent large update (149 mgb) to iTunes I was able to pair my LG phone to my wife's iMac and transfer mp3 files either way using Bluetooth. Now when I pair the phone and go to Browse Device on the iMac it lists all of my phone memory files but will only open the the SDPicture file. When I click on the SDMusic file it says operation failed. Is this just Apple protecting their rice bowl with regard to music sales or is it a glitch in the software?

Software :: Can A Bluetooth Phone Be Used For A Backup Device

Feb 1, 2008

I'm going to be getting a new phone very soon. I'm looking at the LG UX380 because it supports a 4GB memory card.

I don't really care about the music because I have many iPods to use.

That got me to thinking though - can I simply drag files to my phone from my iMac?

If that works, then maybe I could use Automator to set up a schedule to backup some of my more important stuff, then I can take it with me.
