I have a Macbook Air that I am trying to connect to a Samsung GT-S7550 via Bluetooth. I do not use BT very often and can't seem to get the last step completed.

Basically, I've turned on BT on both devices. I've gotten the two devices to pair and the phone shows up in my BT menu. I can even browse the folders, but there are no files in them. I am looking to transfer some .amr voice files from the phone to my computer.

Any help would be appreciated.

long press on the .amr file on your phone, press 'Share', then bluetooth, then click your device that appears in the list.

I tried to select Send File as BT under More when the sound file is open. I select the MA, which is authorized and paired in the BT menu, and it still does not work. I just says "Sending Failed."

As far as I can tell the two devices are talking together and paired.
