Bluetooth to Windows 7 x64


Nov 1, 2011
Hi All, i just picked up a cheap bluetooth dongle and thought he lets pair the prevail.

heres what ive ran into.

the phone pairs fine

after pairing windows says there are 3 new devices... but cant find drivers for them. ive looked all over the web for prevail bluetooth or android bluetooth drivers. heres the screen shot.

Following a workaround I can get file transfer working via Windows Moibe Device center.

i was having the same problem for my pc.

i have a USB bluetooth.

what i did was right click on my bluetooth tray icon and click on add device once my device showed up i right clicked it again and i clicked on
Properties > Services tap
and i checked all the services that i wanted.
and once you click okay or accept it should start installing the drivers.
samsung galaxy prevail is my phone.
