    The dot only turns green 'connected' when there is some actual Bluetooth activity going on between the computer and device, such as when transferring a file or browsing the device. It does not stay on all the time.


    To transfer files between Mac and phone (assuming your phone supports that function) you need to turn on Bluetooth Sharing in the Sharing system preferences pane on your Mac.


    I've no idea what a "selfphone" is, so I'd suggest you contact the manufacturer, or their support forums for specific help on using its various functions.
