    Hi guys. Using 5.0 vanilla firmware, I cannot send files anymore from my phone via bluetooth. I can use headphones/bluetooth car kits just fine but sending files has stopped working, tried with various laptops and other phones.
    Any suggestions on what I could try? Many thanks!

    Also, receiving files on my phone works without any issues.

    Have the device had a automatic OTA update recently you know of? If so the new updated firmware may no longer support Bluetooth file transfer of (EX.) .rar , exe, tar ,ECT. But it should still send mp3, mp4 , ogg files. Try refreshing the Bluetooth settings to the device you're trying to transfer to by removing and reinstalling the link and password information and always restart the devices.
