6230, PC software, Bluetooth...??

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.nokia (More info?)

Greetings!

I know a bit about computers, not much about cellphones, and nothing
about bluetooth! :-)
I just bought a Nokia 6230, which works fine as a telephone so far and
takes pictures that seem to look OK at least on the phone screen since
I've been unable to transfer them to my computer.
These two uses are essentially why I got the phone.
I know (?) how to install software and installed the software that came
on a disc with the phone (PC Suite or PC Sync or some such).
I also bought a Sitecom CN-500 Bluetooth USB adapter (a "dongle" I
understand it's called).
All software appear to have installed OK, at least it says so, the phone
works with bluetooth enabled on it (the little black ball between two
brackets in the top left hand corner of the phone screen is on)...
yet the bluetooth icon on the desktop or the taskbar, when clicked
(right or left click, single or double) finds nothing and does nothing.
The Nokia PC software opens up, but no phone is recognized.
The "dongle" blinks green invitingly.
As of now, I have uninstalled both Nokia soft and Bluetooth soft.
And that's all she wrote.

I only want to be able to tranfer photos taken with the phone onto my
computer for treatment and emailing from my computer email client.
Nothing else.
No mini-messages, no sending pix via the phone to another phone, no
emailing directly via the phone... ONLY FROM PHONE TO COMPUTER.

Now, my question to you wizards is simpler than you think:
-in what order should I install the software?
-PC software first then Bluetooth, or the other way around?
-Or does that have no bearing?
And then comes the good one:
-Any suggestions as to what I should do? Where to go on the net to find
an answer? Whom to ask?

Thank a million for any suggestions

    Blimey Michael.

    Do you want someone to come round and do it for you? :-)

    (only joking)

    To make it VERY simple. Buy a card reader. Job done :-)

    Bluetooth transfer to your pc will NOT be as quick as exchanging files
    (pictures) to/from your pc. That's the good side. :-)
    To transfer files with the card reader, you'll need to remove the card from
    your phone, and insert the card into your reader/writer. That's the bad
    side. :-(

    Card readers now are so cheap, and as stated the file transfer would be much
    quicker.

    An alternative?? Buy a data cable, then simply plug into the bottom of your
    phone, and off you go.

    Trust this may help.

    Cheers

    Since you already have the dongle you should try to get it to work. I have
    the same phone and have successfully transfered pictures and mp3. That
    doesn't mean that it was simple. I purchased the linksys bluetooth dongle
    and installed that prior to the nokia suite. I think that the suite needed
    to recognize that there was bluetooth present on the computer. I then had
    to tinker alot with both the nokia software and the bluetooth software that
    came with the dongle. It wasn't easy and I cannot always make the software
    work. The important thing is to have the 2 bluetooth devices (your computer
    via the dongle and the 6230)pair with each other which can be difficult.
    Sometimes you have to disconnect the dongle and then reconnect it for it too
    see your phone and computer. You just have to keep at it and you should try
    to connect using the software provided for the dongle first. Make sure you
    have names for your devices. All I can say is good luck and keep trying
    cause the back panel on that phone is way too flimsy to be openning up
    constantly.

    That's right there was an issue with service pack 2. Linksys has a fix on
    their site for that but I seem to recall it was just about accepting a non
    certified software install.

    Oh, would you?? I didn't dare ask for that, but since you so kindly

    That's seems a little convoluted, removing the card from the phone
    everytime. Also, I bought this BT dongle so I might as well try to get
    that to work...
    And speed of transfer is not paramount. I just want it to transfer,
    period. Now, I hope you don't mean that a 100K .jpg will take hours to
    tranfer???!!!

    A back-up option if all else fails. Thanks for the suggestion!! :-)

    Is there a data out socket on a 6230?????

    Ah, that's what I needed to know. Thanks.
    Now whether it'll do the trick is another story, as you can imagine...
    :-)
    I'll try that tonight when I get home from work.

    When and if that happens, are you saying that the tinkering may need to
    be repeated? In other words, if it works on Monday, there's no guarantee
    it'll work when I restart my machine on Tuesday???...

    So, install BT first, then the Nokia software suite, but use BT's soft
    to establish the link/connection?

    > Make

    The BT icon in the task bar had "named" my computer (using the Win2k
    name for my C: drive) so it seems that part went OK.
    How do I "name" the phone? Under Blue Tooth Parameter (on the 6230 menu
    list) there are two headings: visibility, set to visible by all; and
    name of telephone, which I cleverly set to "Nokia6230" :-) . Is that OK
    and what you meant by having "names" for my devices?

    Thanks a lot Andy, I'll keep at it and report my success (!!!) here!

    Shouldn't be an issue for me as I run Win2000, sp4.

    Back to my original post....

    Buy a data cable or Card reader :-)

    I too bought a BT dongle, was having similar set up problems, so chose to
    use the other alternatives.

    But I fail to see a data-out socket anywhere on the 6230.
    Is it hidden somewhere? The manual doesn't seem to mention one?
    Am I missing something? :-)
    Thanks for your time and replies!! :-)

    Just had my 6230 for a month or so and have been experimenting with
    bluetooth. PC has XP SP2 and had trouble with Nokia suite that came with the
    phone. 6.1 I think it was. Any file bigger than a few K long and BT gave up.
    Even though my phone is new, its firmware is pretty old too. Like everything
    else, download the latest off the net if you can.

    I downloaded the latest PC suite 6.4.1 I think it is off the Nokia site and
    all is well for file transfers.

    Dongle is a cheapy Newtek for £15 and it seems great. Just filled the 32 meg
    MMC card with MP3s no bother. Now when it comes to that 2 gig card I fancy,
    that might be another thing altogether.

    We have a few oscilloscopes on bluetooth for screen printing at work that
    use Win2000 and XP as their OS and walking into the place is great when all
    the BT nodes pair up automatically on the 6230. Friends 6630 has real
    trouble doing the same so stick with the 6230

    I will D/L the latest PC Suite, as well as the latest firmware.
    BTW, the firmware installed right now is the 4.44. Is there a newer one?
    As "newer" doesn't necessarily mean "better", do you all recommend
    updating to the latest version, or should I stay with 4.44??

    Its the multi-pin connector along the bottom of the phone, next to the
    power socket. Nokia call it a 'Pop-Port'. Their DKU-2 cable connects
    that to a USB socket on a computer.

    <light-bulbs popping up all around me> So it's the same socket into
    which I plug my hands-free ear-piece/music "ear-goggles" (as Jimi once
    put it)!!!??!!!??!
    Yes?????!!
    Now it all comes clear (what with all the light-bulbs :-) )
    I will make all due attempts at working the BT dongle, and if it all
    fails at least I know I have another option!!

    OK, success of a sort. I have managed to link and pair. Phone and PC see

    If I say no, that's as far as things go. If I say yes, it obeys and

    On a different subject, it would appear synchronization only applies to

    will have IR port. It's a piece of cake. Just make sure (a) IR port is
    enabled on your laptop (somewhere in Control Panel or perhaps vendor
    specific config software) and (b) turn on IR on your phone via
    Connectivity option; IR on the phone will turn itself off after a few
    minutes of no connection.

    What, you don't use a laptop? Many desktop computers actually have IR
    port built-in, but they don't supply the external LED that you need.

    OOppps, never mind. I looked deeper into the PC suite file manager and
    found another directory with the photos. Everything's OK!!!

    Thanks, Quake, for the IR suggestion but I have managed to be successful
    with my BT connection, as of now. What tomorrow will bring... who
    knows???! :-)
    However, I'm curious about your Win2k with a Service pack 6.
    SP6 (Six)??? Are you sure??? Typo???
    Or do you have a special arrangement with Bill G.????
    Or am I missing something again??? :-)

    My 6230 has F/W 4.44 and bluetooth is stable with PC Suite 6.4.1. Checked
    with the Nokia site and there aren't any Nokia dealers in my area than can
    update the phones f/w so it will have to be a post it job.

    btw am I just unlucky or does the 6230 screen scratch easy compared to
    earlier Nokias? Mines a right mess after just a few weeks use.

    Steve, Just a suggestion....

    Get a screen protector.

    If you can't find one deicated to the 6230, buy a PDA (Palm computer) screen
    protector, and cut to shape.

    Keeps the screen "like new" (except for in your case, it will keep the
    scratches as new! :-) )

    Cheers
