I'd like to send an avatar that someone sent me, from my pc to my phone to use as screensaver etc! how can this be done.
I hace bluetooth dongle but it's a nightmare & i don't want another long winded blown out thread!, i'll die! Apparently it didn't work last time becasuse i didn't download the drivers, but it never said i had to! They found each other & i thought that was that!
I can send eamis by my phone, but can i email my phone from pc??

Need more information before we can help

Make and model # of Mobile phone

Have you installed the phone software on the PC

Can the phone connect via a usb cable, and you have the correct cable

What connection option has the phone have bluetooth, cable, inferred????

The phone is a Sagem my401v
It has infra red, i have a bluetooth dongle that i can fit into the back of pc, but i've had no luck with it even though they seem 'paired'.

I guess i could use a usb cable!, would i need to install anything on my pc!

Phone software on pc?! erm, nope!

If it is successfully paired, you should get a message on the phone 'Connected to' or similar. On the PC, it should appear as a drive under My Computer.

You can then drag and drop between the two. If you drop the avatar into the phone's Pictures folder, you can select it as Screensaver, Background, etc.

Same with Ringtones and Music.

The dongle link at the site given is what i bought in the past!, it has no instructions as to what to do!
Do i need to download anything to make this dongle work?

can i not email to my phones number?

both were paired & recognised each other, but when i tryed to send from pc to phone, it always said 'failed'!
