Let’s explore how to use Bluetooth technology to transfer wallpapers and videos from laptop to cell phone in this article. Here is the simple requirement: you need a cell phone and laptop that can support Bluetooth.

If your laptop does not support Bluetooth, then simply get a USB Bluetooth dongle and plug it to laptop’s USB port (of course you can also use desktop computer), then Microsoft Windows will search for the driver and install it automatically if it’s supported. If not, you have to do manual installation by using the manufacturer’s CD.

Once you have Bluetooth driver installed, you can locate the Bluetooth Devices in Control Panel. Here is what you see in Windows Vista’s Control Panel in classic view.

If you check the Device Manager, you can locate the installed Bluetooth driver as well.

As an example, here is the procedure to add the Nokia E50 cell phone to this laptop and communicate with each other. You can also follow this procedure to connect your laptop to other Bluetooth headset, Bluetooth keyboard, Bluetooth mouse or other Bluetooth devices.

1) First, remember to turn on the Bluetooth feature and make it discoverable by other devices (My Phone’s visibility -> Shown to all) on cell phone, so that it can be detected by laptop.

2) Then, double click the Bluetooth Devices in Control Panel, then Click Add… in Bluetooth Devices window.

4) The wizard will then search the Bluetooth devices nearby, and will show the found devices. Here the wizard found my cell phone named David. Click the device you want to add, after that click Next.

Select the bluetooth device that you want to add

5) Ok. Here the wizard will ask whether you need a passkey to add your device, so that the communication data between laptop and cell phone will be encrypted later, here I would recommend you to either select Choose a passkey for me or Let me choose my own key. In this example, I select choose a passkey for me.

6) The wizard will then show the passkey and you need to key in to your cell phone. After that, the laptop will try to install the Bluetooth device. If you have Bluetooth program for your cell phone, you can install it as Windows Vista might have problem to install the device . For my case, I install Nokia PC Suite on the laptop, so I can transfer wallpapers and videos later.

Note: Also your cell phone will get the prompt to accept connection from laptop, and you need to click yes.

7) At last, click Finish to complete the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard.

How does built-in bluetooth work in a car?

I just got a new Mazda-6 and included in my package was a built-in bluetooth link. I have a Verizon Chocolate 2 which I'm pretty sure has bluetooth capabilities. But how does the whole thing work? Do I need a subscription or anything to take advantage of the bluetooth? I'm pretty much clueless.

dknol answers:

You don't need a subscription for bluetooth. You need to sync your phone with your car using the bluetooth, and then when you get a phone call you can take it through your car speakers. Bluetooth is a technology for connecting devices. Its not a service offered by someone. So once you pay to have it, you don't have to keep paying to use it. (and you already paid to have it, because it is in your car. So don't get confused and think you need to pay something else because you don't)

Donna asks…

Will a good quality bluetooth headset sound good even if my phone itself sucks?

I have a cheap cellphone but no reason to get a better one; I just hate the fact that the sound quality is very poor on calls. If I get a good quality bluetooth headset, will it sound good even though my phone does not?

dknol answers:

Generally speaking, if the phone is a cheap phone… It may not provide the best service. However, that doesnt mean your phone wont work well. Bluetooth is a technology that enables wireless communication between to objects over a certain range using a specific frequency. That being said, the quality then would depend on the 2 “antennas” talking to each other and not so much the actual phone. Your phone may be cheap, but it may have a good bluetooth chip in it. However, I doubt a cheap phone would have an expensive chip in it :)
