    I know this isn't quite a tech help forum, but I know that there are vast reserves of knowledge here, so maybe someone can help me...

    I'm having some problems transferring images from the phone to my Mac - not happened before, has been fine with same phone Nokia 6300 and other, just seems to be happening from today

    All settings on bluetooth discoverable etc, when I choose to send a picture on the phone, the phone identifies my computer right away; when I choose my computer on the phone, a dialog box pops on the Mac informing me that I have an incoming file transfer, the dialog box reads "Status: Calculating... Time Remaining: Calculating..." and the status bar goes into "barber pole" mode. Then it just hangs like this indefinitely. All this time, a dialog box on the phone screen reads "Sending data 0%."

    Tried deleting bluetooth phone list and re-finding, but I still go the same hang when the file transfer process starts.

    Anyone have any ideas on what I'm doing wrong here? Is there some setting I need to tweak that I haven't thought about? Thanks!

    Try to restart both the phone and the computer. If that doesn't work, read the manual or the manufacturers website to see if you can find anything.

    I know that recently with Leopard people's bluetooth connections have not been working correctly, I found this out whilst trying to connect my BB to my MBP and I ran across many posts about people not being able to connect their phones via BT. You might want to try re-pairing the computer and the phone. Otherwise, I would check out the Apple support forums for any answers.
