Phone to Mac via Bluetooth?
I'm using Mac for sometime now thanks to help I can find here but now I'm having a problem with using bluetooth on Mac. I'm using a Samsung Monte and I used to send files via bluetooth from Mac to the phone.
Now I have to get a file from the phone, to the Mac but I get an error when I hit send on the phone and it says sending failed.
Mac finds the name of the phone and the phone finds Mac. So how can I get this file?
I also tried using "Browse Device" from System Pref->Bluetooth->Browse Device and I can see what's inside the phone, I can find the files I sent there. So I changed the location of my file to the phone (it was on the memory card before). But I still can't see it.
Anyway, if someone can help me get this file I'd really appreciate it, it's highly important to me, please.

Came here looking for an answer but discovered how to do it a bit later by accident....
Go to the folder on the phone where the images are, select 'More', if you scroll down, there is a 'Bluetooth Visibility' option. Nice touch but a little hidden, select this, then you will see that each image has the bluetooth logo with a line through it... click this icon to make it visible on the Mac
Hope it works for you.
-=::: UPDATE :::=-
Some photos, even though they were set to visible, still would not copy. It seemed to be the ones that were being used as Wallpapers, so we temporarily swapped the wallpapers for a different photo, and then they copied over.
Note: We copied using the macs Browse phone feature under the bluetooth icon.

go to System Preferences > Bluetooth > Sharing Setup , tick bluetooth sharing and change the bluetooth sharing preferences to your liking. Once you are done, close the window and go to your phone and send the file using bluetooth, make sure that your Mac bluetooth is discoverable.
I hope it works for you too
