    can't transfer files between laptop and phone over BT

    To transfer files from the phone to the laptop you must first set up the laptop so it is waiting to receive files. In Settings > Devices > Bluetooth & other devices:


    1. Turn on Bluetooth
    2. Click on 'Send or receive files via Bluetooth'
    3. Click 'Receive files'

    When you send a file to the laptop it then ask you to choose where to save it.
