    Files sending via Bluetooth but not able to Receive?

    I have a strange problem. When I try to send the files using my bluetooth then nothing creates any difficulty and it sends files successfully but when any other person sends files to my phone then It fails to receive and it simply displays a message "File sending failed" in the mobile of sender . Please help?

    It usually happen when connection is lost.Or sender's connection is not working.Also bluetooth need pair.You need to create pair with other device.You can be able to send but to receive you need pair.Or you must have forgotten to make your device visible.If you have then it is not possible to receive the files.
    From your home screen go to setting then open Wireless & networks.After opening go to Bluetooth setting then turn on the Bluetooth.When you turn on your Bluetooth then immediately turn on Make device visible.try these thing in your device.

    Re: Files sending via Bluetooth but not able to Receive?

    This is because your device is not "discoverable". By default all android devices are not discoverable and this due to safety reasons. And this is why you are not able to receive any files via bluetooth.

    To make your device discoverable
    Go to settings > wireless and network > bluetooth setting and tap the Discoverable checkbox. Your device will be discoverable for 120 sec. Now you can receive files via bluetooth.

    Dear friend,

    (1) Check both the devices Bluetooth switched on.
    (2) Accept/pair the devices.
    (3) bluetooth and enable discoverable mode
    (4) send files
    (5) If file size is large it takes some time.

    You have to change the access setting of bluetooth. You have to check the box which allows other users to connect to your device. Just click on the box and allow others users to send files to you. Now authenticate other users using the key to be typed in both devices. You will be able to receive files from others also.

    Re: Files sending via Bluetooth but not able to Receive?

    Dear,
    To receive files you have to enable bluetooth device.
    here in Android devices you have to enable discoverable option everytime.
    Make a pair with that device.
    After making a successful pair with other device you can easily receive files via bluetooth from that device.
    No issues will there.

    May be the paired devices list is completely be filled either in your device or the sender's device. Delete some of them so that the problem will be rectified. If still problem continous, then scan all the memory locations with a fine anti-virus. Because, it may be of any virus affect.

    Re: Files sending via Bluetooth but not able to Receive?


    hey

    This can be due to the fact that your phone might need to have its software been updated ..
    Sometimes corrupted software does not allow to transfer files through bluetooth ..
    Also sometimes if there is less phone's internal memory then also does not allow to use bluetooth..
    And also do check for any viruses in the phone ...

    So , first reset your phone and then update the software ...
    After that clear up the phone's memory ... I am sure the bluetooth will work fine after that ..
    If problem persists further then you have to take your phone to the nearest nokia care centre and get your phone checked..

    thanks

    Re: Files sending via Bluetooth but not able to Receive?

    Hello friend,
    There may be some software regarding issue to must have to rset your phone and then try again.

    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.

    Regards!
