Want to transfer pictures from LG420g to my laptop using a Bluetooth adapter.
I have taken several pictures, but I can't figure out how to send them to my laptop. Does anyone have any information on how to do it? Has anyone been successful? Hope to hear from someone
You can transfer your pictures to PC via Bluetooth. If your laptop or PC doesn't have Bluetooth built-in, you'll have to get a Bluetooth adapter. After installing the the adapter, you have to pair the PC with your phone similar to how you would have to do it with a headset.
The steps are:
1. Turn on Bluetooth on your phone:
To pair it with your PC, take your LG 420g and go to Settings --> Connection --> Bluetooth and set it to "On".
2. Make the phone visible to your PC:
Again go to Settings --> Connection --> Bluetooth --> Settings --> My Visibility and set it to Visible.
3. Go to your PC's bluetooth settings and add the LG 420g.
With my adapter on my Windows laptop, I have to choose "Add a Device". The LG 420g appears as an option. When I click on it, I get a passcode which I have to enter into the phone. On the phone a prompt appears to add the passcode. Once you add the passcode the phone it will take a few moments to add the device after which you should get a prompt that the "Device is now ready". At this point you should be able to exchange data with the phone.
4. Transfer the photos to PC.
Now on your LG 420g you can go to My Folder --> Pictures and select a picture. Then select Options --> Send --> Bluetooth and select the paired device (your PC). The file should then get transferred to your Bluetooth Exchange folder (your PC may first ask for permission to grant the transfer request).
5. View photos on PC
You should now be able to go to your Bluetooth exchange folder and view the file.
Hope this helps.
