    I have a Samsung Galaxy Fit. I am not able to connect it to my laptop via bluetooth, whereas as my friends' Samsung Galaxy Pop gets connected easily.

    Both the laptop and the phone don't find each other.

    Earlier a month ago i was able to connect it to my laptop, but i am unable to do it now :(.

    I am really confused, I know you guys will help me out.

    P.S. - 1.My device is set to discoverable.
    2.I am able to connect my phone to other phones but NOT the laptop

    ^Try deleting the device and reinstall it?

    PS: I always find samsung/LG phones' connectivity messed up. Nokia & SE are much easier to setup.

    I can't think of a reason why devices are not discoverable. Does any other device gets discovered?

    In the phone...go to settings...wireless and network settings...bluetooth setting...tick the box beside visibility(if checked...uncheck and recheck)
    It will make your phone visible to other bluetooth devices.
    You do not need any 3rd party solution...if you still can not find your phone from another bluetooth enabled device...your phone's bluetooth modeule is probably gone.

    Can you connect any other bluetooth enabled phone to the laptop?
    What laptop are you using?

    yes i have connected nokia 5800, samsung galaxy pop etc to my laptop
    laptop is Sony Vaio VPCEH28FN (refer sig.)

    i will try connecting my phone to my friend's laptop tomorrow and see what happens

    amazing now i am able to connect my phone to my laptop....

    edit -
    I still wonder what would have been the problem
    I restarted my phone today in the morning, but i did that too 2 or 3 days ago to get the phone connected. :confused:
