Hello,

Just upgraded from Tiger to Snow and my Nokia cannot send pictures to the mac using bluetooth anymore...

I installed the isync plugin, isync works fine, I can even browse through my phone with the mac, but I can't send anything from the Nokia to the mac, the Nokia detects the mac, tries to send the photo and then it says: connection impossible.

any idea ?

I was not aware of any phone allowing pictures to be sent to a Mac via Bluetooth.

found the solution :

in the bluetooth prefs of the mac, under bluetooth file sharing, the option "always ask" is not working unless one check the twinning option...


too bad I have to twin my mac with any other apparel before they can send me something, the always ask option being enough to avoid intruders... :-)

and the best is that you can send many different files ( files from the file manager, videos (a little too long) and photos).
You can send one by one or select as many as you want and then send via bluetooth..

Just do forget to check the "pairing" option (not twinning, sorry bad frenglish) on your mac bluetooth prefs...
