    Default [Bluetooth] Sharing iPhone Internet connection to Laptop ?

    Hi,

    I've successfully had my laptop detect and pair the iPhone. My question now is, what can I do with that? I thought I'd be able to transfer files (perhaps outside of iTunes)....

    Has anyone paired their iPhone to their PC, and if so, what kind of stuff are you able to do?

    Thanks in advance,
    A

    I had iPhone as discoverable and then I told Vista to search....it took a while but it found it and assigned a passkey. As I said before, not sure if this will be of any use...

    I spent a fair bit of time playing with pairing my iPhone to my laptop. Like you, I can get it to pair, but nothing beyond that. You can't transfer files this way - I tried - I presume Apple blocked it purposefully to block hackers from having access to the file system over Bluetooth.

    Actually, the bluetooth on the iPhone was designed for pairing with Bluetooth headsets and not transferring of files. That's probably why it will "find" the device, but you can never send or receive anything. Same thing happened to me.

    As already mentioned in this thread the iPhone bluetooth software doesn't support any other profiles than bt headsets/handfrees. Hopefully they are going to add at least bt serial profile for bt gps devices into the new 2.0 sw. But all we can do is hope...
