Bluetooth Headphones Work Only With Cell Phones?

Q: Bluetooth Headphones Work Only With Cell Phones?

I bought a set of Bluetooth headphones in order to use Microsoft's Speech Recognition program on my Dell notebook computer. I bought the BH M20 Bluetooth headphones. But, I can't seem to get them to work. When I turn the headphones on, it seems that my computer can't "find" them. (The red-blue lights flash and then the blue light flashes, but when I click on the speaker icon in the system tray, the headphones aren't there. I went on line and found an add for the headphones that talks about how the headphones "work beautifully with all cell phones, but doesn't say anything about working with computers. So, I am wondering if the headphones work only with cell phones. I would think that being Bluetooth, the headphones would work with any Bluetooth-enabled device. Thanks in advance with any and all comments regarding this issue.

A:Cell phones laptops and bluetooth question

Are you wanting to use the cell phone to connect your laptop to the internet? If so you could connect the nokia to the netbook with the supplied cable and use nokia pc suite to establish an internet connection. The other option would be to buy a bluetooth usb adaptor (only about 5) which will allow you to wirelessly connect to your cell phone.

I have tried many times to get my Bluetooth Headphones to work with Windows Media Center without any luck. I use Media Center to watch Cable TV through a Cable Card Receiver box. The BT headphones pair and is listed in Devices and Printers. I can see it in playback devices and click test. The bar indicated that there is sound going to the headphones, but I don't hear anything. I even had a guy from The Geek Squad give me some help, but had the same results. Are we doing something wrong or does this in fact not work with Media Center?

A:Can't get Bluetooth Headphones to work with Media Center

Do you get any audio through the Bluetooth headphones, or is it just TV through the media center?.

There is another recent post from a user that is trying to use some Bluetooth speakers and having problems getting audio to them, although all the other PC audio functions work OK (including speakers and headphones connected directly to the PC).

In May, I bought a pair of bluetooth headphones (Photive BTH3) and a USB bluetooth wireless adapter (SoundBot SB340) for my work PC.
 
Last week, my computer got a bug, and IT reformatted the computer.
Now my headphones are not pairing with the computer properly.
I used the CD that came with the USB adapter, and it seems to work, but when I pair the headphones with the computer, the drivers start to install, and I get this error:
 

 
I got this right before it, and thought it was all going well

Hi all,

I was wondering if I could use Microsoft Visual C++ to develop for the nokia brand cell phone, I have been scooting around the forum but have found nothing there to give me a clue. The forum says that I need to download the Symbian sdk, but I have net beans and the MS IDE and was wondering if I could use either.

What is the verdict, or should I just download their tools and use them.

Many thanks to anyone with some sound advice.

You're looking for GPS software for laptops such as this: Garmin Mobile PC North America GPS Software for Laptops. You'll need to be sure that whatever software you acquire has a GPS receiver as part of the package so that you can use it real time.

We have ATT cell phones that do not work at our house, "emergency calls only." They work in some pockets nearby our home only. We don't want to change cell carriers; have a contract etc. One of the phones is "smart." I am NOT looking to avoid paying for calls, but I have heard that it might be possible to use our Comcast broadband and home network to make calls via wifi.

I am only looking for legal / ethical ways to do this, so please don't jump on me with accusations if there is no legal / ethical way to do it; just tell me so and I'll leave it alone.

Thank you,
 

A:Samsung Cell Phones, Can they be used with any provider?

If it's got an AT&T logo then it's *probably* locked to AT&T. Not certainly, but my experience has been that unlocked phones aren't branded with a carrier. (At least those that are purchased as unlocked. I understand that there are authorized unlocking procedures for some phones, but there aren't for all phones so your best bet would be to check with both AT&T and your new carrier about your specific phone.)

I took the java games off of my nokia phone and put them onto my LG phone using GThing but some of them dont work (just exit when u open them) and most of them have the same default screen size for a nokia phone which is small on my LG phone. What I was wondering is if there was any way to convert these or re compile them to work on my LG phone. Someone who i cant get in touch with anymore did it but i forgot to ask him how lol.

Also is there any way of making free pc java games compatible with LG phones?

On cell phones why are the speaker phone speakers in the back of the phone? The normal ear piece speaker is on the front. Wouldn't it be better to have the speaker phone speaker next to the ear piece speaker?

It would make it easier to talk on speaker while surfing the web when I'm on a noisy street.

Then today I tried again and it won't work. To check I tried to send also files via my Samsung Galaxy Tab and it did not work.

What happened ? A WIN 7 update ?
P.S.: I do not have Bluetooth software which tells me with right click send files receive files.
I read many threads in various portals but none of them applied to my problem.

After all Bluetooth is such a fragile technology that it is basically useless to me. Now it also happens that it is fragile with WIN 7.

Hi

I assume you mean a Blue tooth Headset, if so prices will vary from how they look to who makes them and how long you get on things like standby time and talk time, i was bought a plantronics one by the kids for xmas and it works great and lasts for a long time and it was about 20.

If however you want to pose with a designer model then expect to pay upto 100 for one.

Ask around the people you know who have one and see what they say.

I have a different Android phone than your's .
With that said when your phone is paired with the computer you can transfer file's between each other but to look threw all the folders and stuff on the phone with your computer you will need some software on the phone , with that said I use a program called Webkey for Android it works with the browser on your computer but I think you have to have your phone rooted to use it, there are other app's on the Google play store that do the same thing

Oh to transfer file's with no app . On your computer right click on a file that you want on the phone and pick "send to" and one of the options will be "send to bluetooth" (or something looking similar to that) and on your phone long press on the file you want send to the computer and something similar will come up . It's been a while since I have had to do that I can't think of the name right now. As long as you are paired this should work

Is that something else I have to buy Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated even if it s just a link to a good BASIC non-techie page that explains all this Barbara nbsp

A:?? -- bluetooth headphones and dongles??

You can use a USB BT dongle with virtually any XP or Vista computer. Just install the BT drivers from the disc that comes with the dongle, (may require a restart), then plug in the dongle..it will be auto detected. You can then configure the settings for computer name, security, connections, types of services for the BT eg. A2DP for streaming audio, HID for BT mice, OBEX for file transfers etc etc.

Then you can pair your BT headset with the computer. You'll need to enter a passkey for authorization; if the manufacturer has preset one for the device, it will be mentioned in the documentation. Set the headphones to auto-connect for future sessions so you don't need to go through the authorization stage each time.

Please note that XP doesn't handle BT all that well...in the last 3-4 years, I've tried numerous BT devices with XP, and all have given me some sort of issue or the other. The best luck I had was with a tiny Asus USB BT dongle and a Samsung BT headset....both worked nearly flawlessly. Vista is much better with regard to handling BT.

IMHO, BT is not a properly written/implemented protocol..never seems to work as it should with either computers, phones or headsets. Always needs some tweaking/fiddling to get it right. Or maybe I just have bad luck with BT

I hope your setup goes smoothly
Good luck
As for BT Stack
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth_stack
It is broadly analogous to a driver, or base software that controls the BT functions on the PC. For XP systems, the most common are the Microsoft and Toshiba BT stacks. IMHO, the MS stack is quite basic, but more reliable. The Toshiba stack supports more services by default, but can be temperamental. I may be wrong about this, and will gladly stand corrected. Anyway, install the software that came with your device.

A:Multiple bluetooth headphones

I dont think your bluetooth audio adapter is able to drive 2 headphones at reasonable volume level. unless, you get a small headphone amplifier. but then you'll have 3 devices connected and I think it's not worth the hassle. the amplifier itself is cheap, look for something like fiio e3. I have it and it should cost less than 10 bucks.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/FiiO-E3-Hea...1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1353073889&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-3-5m...2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1353073843&sr=1-2

a single alkaline AAA battery could last for about 10h on my heavy usage. but im not sure if the bluetooth adapter could do the same.

bluetooth adapter -> fiio e3 -> 2way splitter

actually this way, it wouldnt be too much of a hassle. the 3.5mm jack of the bluetooth can be plugged directly into the fiio e3 as well as the 2way splitter.

I have Bluetooth headphones that I have been using with my desktop Win7 machine successfully for about one year. Now all the sudden without my having changed anything, I get no sound out of them.

When I turn them on, Windows recognizes them and shows that they are connected, but when I play audio, the sound comes out of my desk speakers and not the headphones.

The headphones work correctly with my laptop.

Please advise how to troubleshoot. Thank you.

A:Bluetooth headphones: no sound

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. In the Playback section there should be an incon for the headset and selecting that for the default playback device should give you headset sound.

Hi all, I'm losing my mind here! A couple of days ago no sound was coming out through my TV speakers. My Bluetooth headphones which I use with a dongle was the only way I could hear sound. So in a stunning fit of stupidity I disabled the headphones and the sound came back through the speakers.

I thought I was pretty clever till I went to enable the headphones again and they didn't show up. They're nowhere to be found. I right-clicked the volume icon, right-clicked the blank space to show disabled and disconnected devices, and they're still not there. The dongle is working correctly because the bluetooth mouse/keyboard are fine. The dongle interface says the headphones are connected, and I even hear that hsssssssss sound when I connect them, but sound still only comes through TV speakers.

Okay so my friend's using TELUS for his cell phone service, but I'm using Rogers. He said he's limited on using the Bluetooth because TELUS & Rogers both "locked" it so you can't transfer certain files like Ring Tones - and I overheard some people saying because of this lock, TELUS cannot recieve any media files from a Roger's bluetooth & vice-versa.

If this is true (which I hope it isn't - I haven't had time to meet up with that friend to test), is there any way to unlock it? I'd love to share some pictures & ringtones w/ my friends. And put in some custom wallpaper on my phone too.

can't find drivers. I contacted the Mfg, they say Vista should supply.....confused.

I checked, and noticed that I am still running SP1. Will installing SP2 help me out with Bluetooth support
or am I going in the wrong direction here??

A:Drivers for Rapoo Bluetooth Headphones

Yes, install SP2. Let us know if it helps.

After installing, there will be lots of updates to install.

A:activate bluetooth wireless headphones

Right click the Volume icon (in the Notification Area) - Playback devices. Are the headphones listed? If so, you can probably make them the default and, hopefully, that's all it will take.

Does Win mobile 10 support bluetooth headphones? Does it respond to next/previous track, vol up/down?

I have a pair of Sennheiser Momentum Wireless headphones.  They paired successfully the first time, music worked, worked as a headset.
Rebooted the laptop for something, now they won't reconnect.  Deleted the pairing, repaired fine but won't reconnect.  Have tested this on another laptop and it works fine.
Currently running the WIDCOMM drivers on the dell support site.

Hi, 
Can you do a system restore and try pairing again. May be some backend services update have conflicted.
Did you try any other bluetooth device ?

Regards

I have a windows 7 computer. I can connect to my headphones, but it only connects to the communication part of my headphones and not the stereo part, which is what plays audio. How do I fix this?

Using Lenovo thinkpad r61 and Windows XP. Bluetooth peripheral works great with mouse & keyboard. It used to work great to send & receive files from Samsung Sync SGH A707C. Now, when I try to send or receive a file from phone to laptop, I get a message: file transfer not successful, an address incompatible with the requested protocol was used. My cell phone is recognized as a bluetooth device & I've been thru the set-up several times. What could I be missing here? There just doesn't seem to be a connection. Thanks for any help!

how do i connect a cell phone with bluetooth to a laptop with bluetooth?
 

A:how do i connect a bluetooth cell phone to laptops?

What OS? In windows you simply set your cell phone to discoverable in the bluetooth settings and then in your bluetooth places you discover devices. It should walk you through the pairing process from there.

Microsoft has been pinning their hopes on this very scenario. The only solution I know is really a compromise to something IT found acceptable: They created an app specific to this single purpose for their employees on the level where BYOD is not an option (departmental heads and higher are issued Windows Mobile devices). Like I said it's kind of a solution in that it allows IT some form of control that's acceptable rather than moving the company to Windows Mobile across the board which gives you the amount of control and level of security IT wants.
 
Sorry if that's not the simple solution you were hoping for. As long as Microsoft still has real hope of getting traction in the mobile OS marketplace you're unlikely to see it from them

So memory leak Bluetooth headphones/audiodg.exe I recently purchased a pair of Bluetooth headphones and I was using them last night until for some reason they disconnected from the PC and couldn't get them to reconnect Within minutes Windows told me I was low on memory so I closed everything and launched Task Manager Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation was using almost GB of RAM and rising I have GB of RAM and I've NEVER used more than half that even with heavy graphic-intensive games I tried closing the process and Bluetooth headphones/audiodg.exe memory leak it just kept popping right back up at around GB of RAM and continuously eating up Bluetooth headphones/audiodg.exe memory leak memory I restarted and immediately checked Task Manager Same thing Eating up memory So I suddenly realized that there was a correlation between my malfunctioning Bluetooth connection and the audiodg acting up so I removed the headphones from the settings and almost immediately the RAM consumption dropped That scared the living crap out of me Bluetooth headphones/audiodg.exe memory leak So now that I know what happened and the cause of it what can I do to make sure that this issue doesn't happen again Is this a known problem with Bluetooth audio I searched Google and found a lot of results but most pertained to well Skype And these were from last year So you'd think that would have been patched by now right And it doesn't seem to relate to my problem either as the consensus among those affected was to restart Skype But I don't USE Skype hahaha So I'm a bit confused as to whether this is a freak occurrence or not

So i have a pair of wireless bluetooth headphones (Sony DR-BT22) and it won't stay connected to my computer. I used to turn it on and it would connect automatically i could listen to my music and everything was fine. Now my headphones won't connect automatically i have to go to my bluetooth click on the device and click connect for them to connect. Not only that but if i close the page that has the connect/disconnect options it will automatically disconnect and i have to reopen the device page and click connect again to get it to work. this is very frustrating and i'm hoping there is someone who knows how to deal with it. Thank you in advance

I'm having the same problem. It's a little annoying to have to connect manually every time I switch the bluetooth earpiece on. Hope to find a solution to this matter soon.
