How to set up and use Bluetooth on the Nokia N900

Setting up and using Bluetooth on the Nokia N900 Maemo-powered touchscreen smartphone

The Nokia N900 has excellent connectivity options onboard, including support for HSPA high speed mobile connections and Wi-Fi, plus full Bluetooth functionality.

Bluetooth enables wirefree communications with other nearby Bluetooth-equipped devices within range of the N900. This can be for a wide range of uses, including connecting to a Bluetooth handsfree headset, transferring files (such as images, video, music or contacts) to another phone or PC, or data streaming with other devices (such as wireless headphones and speakers or in-car systems).

It's easy to set up the phone to send files and to pair with other devices. Here's how...

 

Setting up Bluetooth

  1. On the homescreen, press the Status Area towards the top left of the display.This is the panel that shows the date and battery and cellular signal strength icons.
  2. A Status panel appears. Press the Bluetooth box.
  3. A Bluetooth dialogue box appears.
  4. Press the Bluetooth On panel. A tick appears. Press Save to switch on Bluetooth.
  5. To make your phone visible to other Bluetooth-enabled devices (so they can detect it when in range), in the Bluetooth dialogue box, press the Visible panel. A tick appears. Press Save to make the phone visible to others.
  6. Other handsets will now be able to detect your phone when it is in range. It will appear as the default name Nokia N900 unless you change it to something else. To change the name, highlight the default name in the My Device's Name panel (by swiping with your finger) or delete it using the keyboard buttons and type in the new name you want to display to others. Press Save.

Anyone within Bluetooth range of your phone will now see it displayed under the new name (in this example, as 'Smartphone Tracker 1').

 

Sending images and other content via Bluetooth

It's simple to send images, video files, music, contacts, documents and other content from the N900 to other Bluetooth enabled devices.

  1. First you need to locate the content you wish to send via Bluetooth. Work your way through the appropriate menus until you've highlighted the file you wish to send (in this example, a photo).
  2. Press the thumbnail of the image you want to use (or press to select other content). When the full image appears onscreen, press any free part of the screen.
  3. When a panel of controls appears, press the Share icon (three dots connected by two lines).
  4. A set of options appears. Press Send via Bluetooth.
  5. The N900 scans for other Bluetooth-enabled devices within range, which appear as a list onscreen. Press the name of the device to which you want to send the file.
  6. The device receiving the file will prompt the user to confirm whether they want to accept the file. Press Accept on the target device. In a few moments the file transfer is completed.

Press the top right hand corner back button to return to previous menus.

 

Pairing with other Bluetooth devices

  1. If you want to pair with other Bluetooth devices, in the Bluetooth dialogue box, press Devices.
  2. Initially, none will be shown. To add a new paired device, press New. 
  3. The N900 scans for other nearby Bluetooth devices and a list appears onscreen. Press the name of the device with which you wish to pair.
  4. A dialogue box appears. You are prompted for a Bluetooth passcode for the device. One is automatically generated by the phone, although you don't have to use this. The passcode can be made up by you - you don't have to remember it like a PIN code, so you can keep it simple, such as '0000'. Some Bluetooth devices, such as headsets, have a simple preset default passcode which will be listed in its pairing instructions (such as '0000' or '1234'). Type in the passcode. Press Pair.
  5. If you are connecting to a phone, PC or similar device, that device will also prompt you for the pairing passcode. If so, type in the same passcode.
  6. In a few moments, the pairing procedure is completed. A confirmation message appears briefly, and the device with which you've paired is added to your list of paired devices. Any Bluetooth gadgets to which you have paired, such as a wirefree headset, can be used when within range without having to go through additional connection procedures.
