Default Connecting via bluetooth to Mac

Right, I must be going mad because I just can't get this to work.

My Nexus and Macbook are paired, and I can send files from my Mac to my Nexus. But whenever I try to send a file from my Nexus to my Mac, it shows the two being briefly connected, but the phone always gives a "file not sent - connection error" response.

Anyone got any ideas?

So, in the hopes that someone with some knowledge might peruse this thread, I'll keep it alive by asking what your bluetooth problem is. Same as mine?

I'm a Mac user and I have noticed the same thing. I think it's another 2.1 issue as all the other phones i've had I could transfer from phone>mac.

I actually have the opposite to you. I can send files via Bluetooth to my Mac with no problems, but can't send from my Mac to my Nexus

wana swap? i have absolutely no desire to transfer anything from my Mac

I've read other bluetooth problems that people have fixed by changing the order they pair, or which device they pair from etc. I have tried initiating the pairing from both my Mac and my phone, neither seem to make a difference.

What I have noticed is that when sending the file from the phone, the little dot on the Mac bluetooth preferences window that indicates connectivity briefly turns green. So something's happening. Just not anything useful.

My problem is that while I can get the bloody things to pair (laptop and the Nexus), I can't get them to connect?!?

Just use the hard wire at the moment.....

How is the USB cable not working? Did you download the SDK and drivers?

You shouldn't need to download the SDK (plus drivers come with SDK, so not necessary for separate download).

A lot of people (myself included) ignored the line in the manual after connecting via USB for the first time, and forgot to pull the notification bar down and select to mount the phone. Don't know if that might be the problem.

But back to Bluetooth!!! Anyone found a way to fix it?

I want to know if there should be a way to maintain a continuous connection between phone and Mac (or Windows computer, I don't suppose it matters). Mine only seems to connect when a request is sent (say, from the Mac to the phone) and then disconnects immediately after the file transfer is complete.

Obviously with things like Bluetooth headsets the connection is maintained for long periods of time. I'm just wondering if this should at least be possible with a phone and a laptop. Because if it is, I'm missing that option entirely.

True true. Actually I forgot that the drivers should be included in the HTC Sync software as well. But I totally agree the phone should have a method to install the drivers automatically when plugged in. Only thing I missed about having a WM phone.

I think I'm missing something. I didn't have to install anything to have my phone work as external storage on my laptop. Just plug and play (or plug and transfer, as the case may be).

Ah, nevermind me then lol. I came from a HTC Hero so I already had the software installed and just assumed this was needed.

It's doing my ruddy head in. I keep reading the manual and seeing what should happen after you pair (as in, it connects!!) but that just never happens. Need to find someone else with a bluetooth enabled.. anything... to see if the problem is specifically with my Mac or all Bluetooth devices.

It seems strange that there are only a few of us reporting this problem though, the issue on the Android issue board only has 4 or so stars. Maybe we've got dodgy units.

Had a brainwave last night that made me think I might try it without wi-fi enabled (which is always enabled whilst I'm in my house) in case they were interfering with each other, but no joy.

OOOOOOH!! People with Macs, bow down to your new master! I've totally solved this problem.

So. On your Mac, go to the Bluetooth preferences panel after pairing your Nexus to the Mac.

Select the Nexus in the left-hand menu, then use the little cog to pull down a list of options. Select "Edit serial ports..."

Click the little '+' icon, and in the Port Settings section, select OBEX Object Push. Protocol should be automatically set to RS-232. Click "apply" (and probably "require pairing" to be nice n secure) et voila!!

You should now be able to, say, go into your gallery and send a file from your N1.

Cool

I know convenient it is to be able to use BlueTooth File Sync, however, I like using Dropbox to keep things in sync with my phone and other PC's...

There is a free app on the Market called Droidbox (Pro version here) that connects you to your Dropbox account and off you go.

I like it because it does not force you to download anything until you need/want it on the mobile version. You can upload/download files and have it when you need it.

Yeah, I know it's not the same, but thought it would help with those that need/want to have files sync'd and available on their mobile.

Hi jcelko.
The solution is back at the page where you can see your device in the left hand pane. All you do is choose advance in the bottom of the full window and where you see serial port name and next column says type. It's where type is modem, you need to change this to rs-232. Carry out a test transfer from your phone to the mac and see what happens. I just carried out a test and all work well. Hope it does the same for you.

Waooo amazing ! a million thanks to Oniongirl l I do bow and even kowtow and bang my head on the ground ! ...Incredible how 1 year later all over the internet people with Apple Macs (at least the ones stuck with a PPC and thus with old systems 10.5.8, don't know about 10.6 or 10.7) are still lamenting about this weird and irritating Bluetooth problem and still try here and there to sell you various useless software and magic hacks for your phone to solve this (every cheap little phone with Bluetooth used to be/still is instantly "browsed" with ease right after the "set up Bluetooth device" and when you end up with a Smartphone with a superior OS such as Android 2.3.3 ...impossible to do the usual old "browse device" or even "send file" from your Mac). I even resorted myself to implement recently a ftp or webdav server on my phone in order to be able to browse my phone files and copy files onto my phone from my Mac -a bit heavy and sluggish solution- (best apps tested: Onair, Swiftftp, Andftp ...and also Mobile webdav -paying, but 30 days trial- to access my iDisk from my Android phone but that's another topic)..
This little Oniongirl trick should be written on the first page of the quick set up manual of every Android phone box !

A short reminder (thank also to Jodbr above):
on 10.5.8 in the System Preferences/Bluetooth, once your phone listed in the left column, bottom right "Advanced", then in "Serial Ports", in column "Type" change "modem" to "RS232". Then in the finder/(Bluetooth symbol)/(your_phone)/ ...you get at last the "browse device" ! Works like a charm !
... ah, I almost forgot, you need on your Android (for me here 2.3.3 on an Xperia Arc aka X12 aka LT15i) to make it work, to turn on an/the "Obex FTP server" app...

...by chance I had this good app Astro to check my files and had downloaded the sister app Astro Bluetooth which shows this "Obex FTP server" option as soon as you click on this latter app !

Not clear at all if this "Obex FTP server" is implemented with the 2.3.3 system on my phone but disabled or came with the Astro Bluetooth ? I understood vaguely that on other phones such as HTC it appears in the Settings/Wireless & networks/Bluetooth/advance settings/ ? ...but elsewhere on the net I have seen that the Obex FTP server function was also considered as a vulnerability on Android ...so it was disabled ...and possibly could only be activated only with some protections, such as limited access to SD card, authorization, etc. By consequence, indeed if this usual function is disabled on the Android phone, the Mac can't see it and thus can't list it in its phone services list -and precisely that's what it says during the Bluetooth device setup on your Mac !- and by consequence the Mac also turns on the wrong serial port type, etc. ...it seems at least a good story and explanation, even if not true -couldn't understand why when my usually smart Mac was mating with a so-called Smartphone -possibly brighter than an iPhone, hence the appeal for adultery-, both machines all the sudden became suddenly so stupid concerning this little Bluetooth thing ! ...Well, well, two humans with IQ>150 when by chance the fall in love with each other, aren't they after all often like that,
especially concerning small things (ooops, darling, forgot you could speak Chinese, or Hebrew, ...or Bluetooth !) ?-sorry guys, couldn't help it, but I am more a writer-poet than an IT geek !

Oooops ! after a few tests (transfers of files from my Mac to my phone, and also reimplementing and retesting my settings), not too sure that what is said in my little "reminder" just above is enough if your don't also do what Oniongirl says farther above... (thus, here is reminder 2):
on 10.5.8 in the System Preferences/Bluetooth, once your phone listed in the left column, bottom left "little cog", the "More info", then "Edit serial ports", then I have this new secondary "Serial Ports" window, attached to the previous window; if I click the little "+", an automatic name comes up "Xperiaarc-AASServer-i" (i = 1 and afterwards 2, etc.), protocole (I choose) "RS-232" and service, I have a choice of 2 things which I both chose (amongst a longer list) "AAS Sever" and "Astro-Bluetooth-FTP". No idea at all what this AAS Server" is... I have the vague feeling that only one of these 2 would probably be enough ?

Default Mac and Google not friends

it is my understanding that because Google and Apple are so against each other, they go out of their way to block and not allow us to connect via bluetooth to any Apple product if you have an android...

Any one know how to get around it...?

Thumbs up I solver my problems

I don't know why but there is a default configuration that causes those kind of problems, what I did is just the follow steps:

in Mac:
Activate Bluetooth
Open Bluetooth Preference Panel (you can access it by clicking on the bluetooth icon in the top menu bar)
click on visible mode option
click the bottom part the button 'share configuration'
and finally allow to share files and bluetooth if it doesn't work.
now after Android configuration, you can click on explore devices.

in Android:
Allow the bluetooth
open Configuration section/wifi and bluetooth connections (I'm using both in spanish, so I don't know if those are the names in english mode)
go directly to bluetooth configuration
allow Visible mode
and that's all, now you can send your files to the mac and reverse.

there isn't extra software or application needed for share by bluetooth in mac and android.

So. On your Mac, go to the Bluetooth preferences panel after pairing your Nexus to the Mac.

Select the Nexus in the left-hand menu, then use the little cog to pull down a list of options. Select "Edit serial ports..."

Click the little '+' icon, and in the Port Settings section, select OBEX Object Push. Protocol should be automatically set to RS-232. Click "apply" (and probably "require pairing" to be nice n secure) et voila!!

You should now be able to, say, go into your gallery and send a file from your N1.
Thank you oniongirl. No one knew how to do it but you!It perfectly worked for me. I'm using a Samsung S3.
Thank you again.
