Is there anyway, we can transfer files from an iPhone to other mobiles? I also want to know if we can transfer notes or images from iPhone to other mobiles, say Nokia or Samsung.
Transfer content via Bluetooth in iPhone
I am also an iPhone user and this was actually one of my problems before. Since I have a lot of music that I wanted to transfer to my other phone. However, sorry to disappoint you but the file-sharing option via iPhone is not enabled. We can only use the Bluetooth option on an iPhone for Bluetooth gadgets and for playing games. And, playing two-player games with another iPhone user is not guaranteed because you have to have the same iPhone versions and software.
But do not lose hope, because you can manually transfer your files to your computer, then transfer them to another mobile device.
Just connect your iPhone to your computer via data cable.
If you do not have iTunes installed, go to My Computer and check if your iPhone is being detected. If you see your iPhone, right-click on it then click explore. You will see the files saved on your iPhone. You can do this for your photos and videos saved on your phone.
If your computer does not detect the device, download iTunes. You can download iTunes free from the Appstore.
Once you have iTunes installed, click on your device then the options for your iPhone will appear. There will be a link there to "back-up files to disk." If you have a re-writable disk, you can save them this way.
You can also just drag your music files from iTunes then save it on a folder from your computer.
Another option would be to download "Copytrans" to make it easier to transfer files to and from your iPhone. You can download Copytrans manager through these links: http://www.copytrans.net/ or http://download.cnet.com/CopyTrans/3000-18545_4-10426173.html.
Make sure you have iTunes installed so you can use the Copytrans manager.
Once you have the files that you need to transfer, just disconnect your iPhone from your computer, then connect your other device to the computer also using a data cable.
Make sure that the files that are from your iPhone are compatible with your other mobile devices.
Note: iPhones sometimes, do not detect the Bluetooth signals of another iPhone device. Simply because file-sharing on iPhones are not enabled or possible. This is one way that Apple maintains its security and quality.
I hope this answers your questions.
