Phone 'paired but not connected' to PC

I have paired my Experia Mini Pro to my Toshiba PC running Vista without any trouble but it will not connect. When I open the Toshiba Bluetooth Wizard it finds the phone but then goes to a file transfer interface which I do not want to use.

I have followed the instructions on how to connect the phone with no success. I'd appreciate any help. Many thanks.

Re: Phone 'paired but not connected' to PC

Not really sure, to be honest! ;-) Just wanted to find out how to connect the phone in case I want to use Bluetooth at any stage. It connects perfectly well using the USB cable, though. I suppose the main issue was that, coming from a Nokia, I was used to using Nokia PC Suite where you can do everything by Bluetooth. I have already bought and installed Android Sync to sync the phone's calendar with MS Outlook and that works fine.

I'm dreading having to connect the phone to my car's handsfree system - in fact I've put it off for ages! ;-)

Re: Phone 'paired but not connected' to PC

lol :smileylaugh:

well yes i came from nokia 2 :smileysilly:

i use windows 7 on my laptop..

i was having same issues..

also, it always say paired but not connected..

go to device and monitor and remove your phone..

open the bluetooth setting and select add device..add your device

note : in my laptop the status of my xperia arc is "needs troubleshooting"ie not all features have been installed..

but i'm able to send file from my laptop to my phone and vice - versa..

i can play songs of my phone in my laptop..

well thats it :smileylaugh: no more features i want to use..

go to settings > wireless and networks > bluetooth settings

and make sure your device is discoverable..

also i have made my latop discoverable so its easy to xchange files..

Re: Phone 'paired but not connected' to PC

Yup, have tried all that but still the phone is saying 'paired but not connected'. I even downloaded the latest Toshiba Bluetooth Stack software and reinstalled it on my PC, but no help. I did try sending a file to the phone from the PC which worked OK, though. Most odd! Thanks for your input - kind of you, Slim.
