How to Transfer Music From a Computer to a Cell Phone Via Bluetooth

By Ann Mapleridge

Bluetooth is an easy way for you to connect your phone to other devices such as headsets and other hands-free devices, car stereos and even your computer without using wires. If your cell phone supports audio files, you can easily transfer your music collection to your phone from your computer through a Bluetooth connection. If you've never performed a Bluetooth audio transfer before, doing so is fairly easy and will only take a few minutes.

Things You'll Need

  • Bluetooth-enabled phone
  • Bluetooth-enabled computer

Step 1

Go into the Bluetooth menu on your computer and set it to be "Discoverable."

Step 2

Go into the Bluetooth menu on your phone and have your phone "Discover new devices."

Step 3

Select "Set up a new Device" from your computer's Bluetooth menu and wait for your computer to find your phone.

Step 4

Enter the pairing code your computer provides into your mobile phone to connect the two devices.

Step 5

Click on the icon that appears for your phone to see if there is a separate folder on the phone for audio files.

Step 6

Drag and drop audio files that you want on your phone into the "Music" folder on your phone, or if there is no music folder directly onto the phone icon. A status bar will appear for each file as it is being transferred.

Step 7

Once your file transfer is complete, enjoy your new music on your phone.

Tips & Warnings

  • Once your phone has been paired with your computer once you will more than likely not have to do it again.
