Default How to transfer files to phone from pc through bluetooth?

Hello everyone


What I am trying to do is send some files from my computer (Windows XP) to Galaxy S (2.2 Froyo) via bluetooth.

However when I try to open file transfer through pc it gives the error "FTP service not found on target device"


I have downloaded the app "bluetooth file transfer" but cant get it to work properly.


So can please someone tell how can I achieve what I am trying to do?

Regards

I was never able to get BT file transfer to work, so I'm using FTP to transfer files. Try:

Thanks for the replies.

I downloaded swiftp and file expert to try data transfer through wifi.

File expert looks to be good. It is a file manager and also has an option for ftp transfer and also for http transfer. Does the job well.


Also downloaded filezilla and duckload as ftp clients. Duckload looks good with drag and drop feature.


Which ftp client do you people use?

I use either filezilla or you can just use Windows Explorer.
