    Cant get pictures off of cell phone
    I have a Motorola v505 with bluetooth, and I can get all of my .mp3 ringtones off of my phone just fine. For some reason everytime I try to open the pictures folder in the bluetooth browser on my powerbook nothing ever shows up. I have tons of pictures on my phone and they wont show up in the bluetooth browser. Can anybody figure out a way to fix this?

    Yea I thought about doing that, but I dont have the internet on my phone anymore because AT&T screwed us over with that. Thats why ive got to use bluetooth.

    My computer finds the phone just fine, and I can get all of the songs off of my phone. My phone plays mp3 ringtones, so i can get all of those. To get the pictures off of my phone you have to double click the pictures folder, and when I do that it searches the folder then when its done searching, it just goes back to normal and the pictures folder doesn't open.

    It sounds as though that function has been disabled by your carrier (fairly common with Vodafone over here in Europe)...

    Try seeing if your phone can send the pictures via bluetooth (not email) to your mac, instead of you pulling them off the phone using the mac.

    Maybe it'll work that way, but I bet the carrier crippled that feature so you send them via email instead (so the carrier can charge you for it).

    I think that might be the problem, when I send pictures to my friends it never gives the option of using bluetooth to send stuff. Ill probably call my provider and see about getting bluetooth turned on. Thanks for the help, that seems to be the problem.

    I am having a similar problem with an LX 8300 running on Verizon. I cannot bluetooth my pictures off of the phone. It tells me the service is not supported. I can't even see the pictures through the Mac
    My wife and I are new converts. She has a new Macbook. I now have a Macbook pro. Our almost three year old son is probably already more proficient than us.

    That's because Verizon cripples its phones to force you to pay to send your pictures out over their network. Bluetooth support is limited to headsets only.

    I've tried every hack out there for my RAZR V3m, but have never managed to do a transfer via BT. I have managed to get transfers via USB working - but only on Windows.
