    Hi guys,

    I've looked through the whole forum for this issue but found nothing about it...so I opened hopefully a new topic.

    I'm from austria and bought my Droid 3 from the US. Everytime I try to use my bluetooth it doens't work. Other people can see my phone and me also theirs but there somehow is no possibility to connect both. Same problem with the laptop.
    Someone maybe know what could be wrong?

    Thx a lot ^^

    Connecting to another phone or laptop using Bluetooth is generally used for things like file transfers. In these situations, there is not a "constant" connection between these two devices. You can "pair" with them which is essentially saving them in memory as a trusted device and then once a file transfer is initiated by either device, the recipient needs only to accept or decline without the need to reenter a passcode. The only devices that your phone will maintain an ongoing connection with is either a Bluetooth audio receiver (example=car stereo) or a Bluetooth telephone receiver (example=earpiece). I hope this helps.

    Hey,

    First, thanks for the response...but that wasn't what I ment ^^
    Pairing works but sending files doesn't.

    Sorry for that bad explanation ^^

    Got it! I would first try unpairing and then repairing the devices and see if that works. I remember having these same issues with my Droid 1 and wound up having to use a third party app called "Bluetooth File Transfer" in order to send files via Bluetooth. If resetting connections doesn't work, give that app a try.
