I would like to send some photos from my Samsung mobil phone to my new iMac using Bluetooth. I can get the devices to pair with no problem but the "Connected" button goes red (not connected) and I can't find a way to change it to green. When I go to the photo screen in the phone and try to send a photo the phone does not recognize the computer at all. I've connected the computer to the phone and then the phone to the computer. Bluetooth sharing in preferences is on. No help. Any ideas?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.5)

    The connected light only goes green when there is some actual Bluetooth activity going on between the two devices. When they are just paired it will be red. It will turn to green automatically when the phone and computer are actually communicating.

    I don't know about your Samsung specifically, but usually when you send a photo by Bluetooth the phone will search for Bluetooth devices and give you a list of ones it finds, then you choose the one you want to send to.

    Also, another possibility is to try browsing the device from the Mac via the Bluetooth menu, and pull the photos across that way.
