Hi everyone. This may be a little retro and complicated but here goes. I was recently given a pre-loved x70. I purchased a BlueSoleil dongle from the local phone shop, loaded up the software (v1.6) and popped the puppy in the USB slot. I'm able to send files from the phone to the PC without a problem but cannot do the reverse. I figured it may be software support related so grabbed the newer v2.3 from the manufacturer’s site. With the newer version I still can't transfer to the phone. I also get a data transfer limit because the newer software does not support the licence key of the dongle that ships with v1.6.
I spoke to the guy in the shop and he suggested the phone may not support file transfer however the phone manual and the actual phone menus suggest to me that it can.
The only services available to me with the x70 are the DUN modem, virtual com port 4 and fax. I don't understand why file transfer service is not available. (All services are active in the service selection window)
Is anybody able to tell me if they have in fact transferred files from their PC to the x70 using a BlueSoleil adapter that ships with v1.6 of the software? Is there a setting in the phone I have somehow missed that could be causing this? Should I be somehow transferring files via the virtual port?
Enough questions from me for now. I'm grateful for any help or suggestions. Thanks - Michael
Is the x70 so old now that everyone has forgotten how to use it?
I finally figured out one way to do it with BlueSoleil dongles so I'll post this in case it helps anyone else. Get the Bluesoleil software up and running and discover the phone ( must have 'Make discoverable' turned on in the phone ).
Then from the "connect" menu on the phone hit Receive Object.
Back to the PC, double click your phone in the bluetooth software to refresh the services and Object Push should now be available with the other services at the top of the window. Right click on it and make a selection. In my case it was Send Objects as I wanted to update the terrible background pictures that came with the phone.
At this point the phone jumps in with a Receive Data From xxxxx ? prompt. Hit yes.
Now the PC opens a navigation window to find the file/files you want to send. Note, if you want to send a supported file type other than the ones listed in the File Types at the bottom of the window, hit the arrow on the right of File Types and select All Files. Navigate to your file, select it and away you go. Another note here, the Receive Object function on the phone quits after a minute or so and if I was too slow navigating to my file it froze the software on the PC when it quit. I have no idea why but for the record, have the files somewhere you can navigate to easily and quickly, perhaps the desktop.
Assuming you got to the file in time, the phone will prompt you to save the file and let you select which folder.
I hope this explains the procedure well enough to help someone else. It does not require the devices be paired and after the first time, on the PC software, hit Tools/Add Device From History and select your phone to transfer more files without needing the discovery step at the start.
