    so i was trying to set up pdanet via blue tooth on a mac and i was struggling along when all of a sudden my blue tooth on my phone turned off. so i tried turning it back on and now it will only stay on for 5 seconds or so before turning its self off again. doesnt matter if i hit any bottons or not while its on for those 5 secs, it will shut its self off. any idea how to fix it? tried taking the battery out already.

    Go into your phones bluetooth settings and check your settings, if you go to your photos (phone) and click on a photo and hit share (arrows) and the select VIA bluetooth, your phone should automatically turn on its bluetooth to transfer a file/photo/video.

    Your mac should open a window asking you to accept the transfer photo.

    Before doing all this, make your pairing on your Mac is completed, your DI should be recognize by your Mac, when a menu drops down after clicking on the bluetooth icon top right toolbar of your Mac, your DI should be in that list which you'll use sending files/photo from your Mac to your phone.

    If you have done everything right and you still have a problem, Reboot your phone and Reboot your Mac, i just had to do it myself when i tried transferring some photos this morning and it kept failing (phone).
