I was able to overcome the problem with this quick fix. So whenever you loose bluetooth connectivity just run the following commands in the terminal $ sudo kextunload -b com.apple.iokit.BroadcomBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport $ sudo kextload -b com.apple.iokit.BroadcomBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport You will regain connectivity.

Yes, some Bluetooth headphones, speakers and hands-free car audio systems have Siri functionality, the Bluetooth device acts as a speaker/mic with action buttons, one commonly found being the Call button. So, in answer to your question, yes it's possible with the right equipment.

Follow these instructions: Turn off the trackpad by holding down the power button until the light goes out. Turn on the trackpad by pressing the power button, and keep the power button pressed until it is paired. The light on the mouse will start blinking, it will show up in Bluetooth Preferences, and you will be able to pair it almost immediately so long ...

Your iMac is acts as a screen only, not as a bluetooth hub. You need to pair your devices to your main laptop only, and get a cheap keyboard for your iMac who's only purpose will be to kick it in target display mode as you described. To re-pair Apple input devices: Mouse / Magic Trackpad: hold "clicked" while turning on 10- 15 seconds BT keyboard: hold ...

AirDrop uses Bluetooth to create a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi network between the devices. Each device creates a firewall around the connection and files are sent encrypted, which actually makes it safer than transferring via email. AirDrop will automatically detect nearby supported devices, and the devices only need to be close enough to establish a good Wi-Fi ...

Bluetooth LE is used for local discovery of other Airdroppers and WiFi direct is used for transmitting anything of meaningful size since it has a MUCH faster xfer rate. And here's a longer version of that explanation.

iPhone 4 has bluetooth whereas iPhone 5 has AirDrop. So they are not compatible with each other. That is answer to a part of your question that iPhone doesn't recognise other iPhone (5 and 4).

Frustratingly, Apple bluetooth peripherals can only be paired with one Mac. If a device is already paired with a different Mac, they will not even show as pairing options on a different Mac. This makes it appear as if they are not working, but in fact, they are working as designed. If you have your mouse and keyboard paired with your iMac, and then attached ...

No. Apple would have to add an additional function for the bluetooth-users, which they hadn't until now. So it's not possible to use the tab-key, because you can't change the button-functions in the iOS-iWork-apps.

Use an out board sender/receiver unit. Plugs via 3.5mm ear phone jack. Unit on phone on send mode lasts from 7-10 hrs on a charge via micro USB, sending its Bluetooth signal to another of the same unit. Other unit is switched to receive and changes signal back to RCA red and white for amp... Works well up around 7 meters Audio Dongle ...

Make sure it doesn't think it's currently paired & in use by another machine. Power down any other devices it could possibly be connected to. Take the batteries out, put them back in; check the green light is flashing. Turn the MacBook's bluetooth off & on again. Repeat in varying order until it gets the idea. So long as you have a non-bluetooth ...

If the software you're using doesn't support specifying an an audio output, you'll have to rely on a third-party utility. Someone else already mentioned Ambrosia's WireTap products, but there is one other I'm aware of: Audio Hijack Pro by Rogue Amoeba. At $32, it beats the pants off WireTap for price. There's also a piece of software called SoundSiphon by ...

I don't know of a way to make it only pair with a single KB/M/Trackpad, so a workaround it to prevent it pairing with anything further once you have paired what you need. One method to do this, on the assumption that the users of the computers do not have administrator access: Step one - turn on parental controls for the users of the systems in System ...

I've got this figured out. On OSX, the "RCD" (remote control daemon) is responsible for the naughtiness. It has hard-coded list of actions to do when it detects certain "events" - one of them being connecting to a bluetooth headset. To disable this behaviour (minimal loss of functionality, possibly your apple remote won't work), use the following two ...

You could connect together using WiFi rather than Bluetooth by creating an ad-hoc network on you MacBook Pro http://www.tuaw.com/2009/09/25/mac-101-create-a-wireless-network-between-mac-and-iphone/ Then use an app like Feem to transfer the files http://www.tryfeem.com I agree that Bluetooth solution should be available.
