    How do you send files to PC via Bluetooth?

    I have a video I want to upload to youtube from Droid.

    I can't do it from Droid, everytime I try to upload, it says "waiting for wifi". So I say, hmm, ok, no big deal.

    So I turn on wifi in Droid, but for some reason my home wifi is extremely slow on my Droid (to the point of unusable, the same wifi spot works perfectly from my laptop. I've raised this issue with Google multiple times, no response. They say it's a bug but do not know how to fix it.).

    So I, hmm, ok , no big deal, I'll send via Bluetooth.

    So I turn on Bluetooth on my Droid, and turn on Bluetooth on my laptop running vista (allow other devices to connect to this computer). And then I go back to gallery, select, video, share->bluetooth. And, it says after 2 seconds "file not sent".

    So I say, ok, no big deal, I'll download a good Bluetooth file transfer program from Market. So I get the famous "Bluetooth file transfer". Repeat the above, and still it cannot connect to my computer.

    So now I say, ok, this IS A BIG DEAL.

    What am I doing wrong? Please tell me sending file via bluetooth is a BASIC FEATURE of any smartphone....

    You can get an app called Bluetooth File Transfer in the Market.

    Yes I downloaded it, and it won't connect to my laptop, says my laptop has no PUSH SERVICE.

    But I am able to use my laptop bluetooth with other devices, like MY 10 YEAR OLD SONY PHONE.

    Read it and weep.

    Looks like you'll have to use Web Sharing from the Market. Apparently Verizon says not supported.

    Is your access point wireless N? If so, is it running in mixed mode? Try setting it to G only.
