    Unhappy [Lion] Bluetooth connection issue between Mac and Android phone
    Hello,
    since I have updated my OS to Lion the bluetooth connection between my MacBook Pro (early 2011) and my mobile phone (Huawei Ideos) doesn't work anymore. In detail, the computer is able to see the phone (and vice-versa) but I can only send files from the MacBook to the phone.
    I can't receive files sent from my smartphone or connect to internet using the phone connection via bluetooth. Obviously I was able to do all these things with Snow Leopard.
    I have contacted Apple, but they told me that their company is not responsible for the connections via bluetooth with non-Apple devices.
    Is there some hope to solve this issue?

    Specs:
    MBP 17" 2011, 2.3GHz Intel Quad-Core i7, 8GB RAM, MacMini 2011, 2.7GHz Intel Dual-Core i7, 8GB RAM
    delete all the connections in your BT stack on both devices. re-pair them from scratch and see what it picks up. BT is it's own special helmet-wearing child anyway.

    Unfortunately I've done that yet with no positive result
    Thank you for your help anyway!
