Connecting via Bluetooth

Connecting via Bluetooth

In order to successfully establish a Bluetooth connection between an Android device and a PC you need to turn on BT on both of them and then, upon them finding each other, attempt a pairing. You can click on "Pair" on either the phone or the PC.

When attempting pairing you will be asked to provide a matching password on both the phone and the PC as seen below on the screenshots.

When pairing is done successfully you will see the phone in connected Bluetooth devices in your PC´s BT settings. When this is done you can view the connected phone in MOBILedit (or any other software of ours). Simply go to the Connection Wizard and select Android - BT connection. Your phone will be found by our Wizard - click on it and connection should be established.

When connection with the phone is established in MOBILedit you may proceed to work with the phone as if it was connected via cable. Please note there will be some limitations to this, due to not all the data being accessible via BT. Most phones will allow you to read contacts, messages and media files.

On Android 5.x and newer you will be asked by the phone´s OS to allow the PC to access the phonebook, messages etc. A confirmation message will appear on your phone asking you to grant a permission for the BT connection to read phonebook, to read messages etc. It is necessary to confirm this message by taping on "allow" / "yes", otherwise empty data will be read.
