    My PC and other Bluetooth devices cannot find my G1?

    My G1 finds these devices and are paired with them but i cannot transfer files?

    Does anyone know what the problem is?

    Sounds to me like your G1 isn't set to discoverable. Should be an option for it in the bluetooth section.

    BT as far as I'm aware is only for headset at the moment i.e. BT headset no other form of BT file transfer or connectivity etc is currently possible. I think I read somewhere on here that this is planned for the future but not available as of yet

    I also set Bluetooth as discoverable?

    My G1 picks up other devices but they cannot find my G1?

    tmobile g1 currently doesn't support file transfer via bluetooth. Only headset profile, though tmobile said we should see a update for the phone to support it, along with stereo bluetooth, by the 1st of January. Which for me is wwwaaayy too long.

    You might be safer putting a 30-Jan reminder in your phone and hope for the best

    Jan 1st sounds like a good date for it. I wouldn't mind that at all if it's true. I'm really waiting for the market to take off and see what devs really have to offer and I'm sure they'll make good use of the Stereo BT when available. Sucks that we can't do file transfers for now though.
