firstly, be sure your laptop(depends on hardware/software) or your phone is discoverable(settings->wireless->bluetooth->visible check).

secondly, be sure to see if both of them are pairable(youll know this while doing the steps below), if pairing cant be done, restart phone or unplug-replug/restart bluetooth software on laptop.

thirdly, what is your usual way of transferring files?
sending files to laptop using your phone? or accessing phone using laptop?

steps ive come up, phone to laptop using phone.
OS win 7
1. open filemanager and tap-hold on the file you want to share.
2. click share->Bluetooth->scan devices
3. let the phone scan for devices and tap on the name of your laptop/computer
4. if not yet paired you will be prompted to enter a security code. be sure to check the laptop screen and just type "1" and then input "1" in the phone also (without the quotes). if pairing problem occurs try going back to top of my post..
5. the file is now being sent, be sure to check laptop if a message to accept a file is mentioned. click yes.
6. find your file on the laptop's mydocuments->bluetooth->inbox or just click on the laptop's notification bubble if something popups.

just tell us if you cant send using this method and ill try to make a tut for the laptop side on how to access phone's files.

tell us if it works

there is no way to get internet using just only bluetooth. (unless your familiar with reverse tethering, ask google)

I got the same problem and finally got it resolved. At first I thought it was just a hardware problem because I always drop it, so I tried to ignored it since I rarely use my phone's bluetooth.

I got my phone bluetooth working by flashing it. You can search on google on how to flash your phone

Download Kies !! then go to setting > application > enable unknown source . then same module go to developer and enable USB Debugging.

Then Try !!

Check Bluetooth settings
MENU ---> SETTINGS ---> WIRELESS AND NETWORKS ----> BLUETOOTH
If still problem go to settings, look for “Restore factory settings”, click on it, enter usual code 1234, and restore settings.
Also use this so maybe you need to turn on Bluetooth visibility which turns visibility on for 2 minutes only. menu–>wireless and network –> Bluetooth settings –> visible (tick)
