I am having trouble figuring out the bluetooth capability of my 800g. I don't have a headset. What I want to do is to transfer pictures from my 800g to my Mac Laptop (with bluetooth). Does my 800g have that capability? When talking to someone at Tracfone Customer Service, I was told that bluetooth only functioned with a headset but I have read elsewhere that I should be able to transfer from my 800g directly to my laptop but I have tried with no success. If not possible, so be it; just another example of Tracfone overstating the capability of its phones. However, if it should be possible, I would appreciate any suggestions as to how to do it.
it took me a few tries in Windows 7 as well, I had to make the phone discoverable
Settings (dice) > second page > bluetooth > settings > My Device Visibility. making the device visible allows it to connect to other devices more easily.
alternately, you can add the Bluetooth to the desktop (home screen, whatever you want to call it) like I did. click the blue up arrow symbol above your shortcut bar at the bottom of the screen, scroll till you find bluetooth. clicking it will dump it to the home screen.
I've paired two LG800Gs and LG800G with BT headset ....... always seems to take a few tries for me, so it's not just you. I wonder if we're doing something wrong of if that's just the way it is ..... feedback on this from anyone else please?
I recently bought the LG800G (Tracfone) and was interested in using the Bluetooth function to talk to others; not for PC connection, etc.
I was wondering if anyone could direct me to the best place to purchase a headset that would work with my LG800G (Tracfone)?
Thanks for any help.
P.S. Sorry if I am not supposed to post on this thread. If so, just remove my post. Txs
This is old thread, for probably an older phone now, but now I decided to buy a Bluetooth USB dongle for my Windows 7 system to finally connect the LG800G. Dongle choices run from Bluetooth 2.0 to at least Bluetooth 4. Has anybody run into an incompatibility problem using the LG800G with Bluetooth 4 on PC? Recommendation of compatible USB Dongles appreciated.Thanks.
