    Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I'm trying to connect a Sony Ericsson phone with my MacBook via Bluetooth. I've got them paired okay, but when I try to send files from the phone to my Mac, it tries to connect, gets connected for like a couple of seconds and then fails again. I've tried to connect to the MacBook several times on the phone and every time it fails.

    Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Have you tried Applications / Utilities / Bluetooth File Exchange > File > Browse Device...?

    Go to sharing under system preferences and make sure 'bluetooth sharing' is ticked

    Thanks for the help! It solved things :) I probably should've browsed/searched around more before posting, but it's resolved now. Thanks.
