Configure Bluetooth for Mac OS X

Configure and set up a Mac OS X computer to work with your Nokia smartphone over a Bluetooth connection.

Mac OS X provides excellent support for Bluetooth. Most new Mac laptops are shipped with Bluetooth preinstalled and preconfigured. To check whether yours has built-in Bluetooth, you can open System Preferences and check whether the Bluetooth icon exists. If your Mac does not have built-in Bluetooth, you can simply insert a compatible USB Bluetooth dongle. Mac OS X recognizes most Bluetooth dongles and automatically adds the Bluetooth icon to System Preferences. If it does not, it is unlikely that you will be able to obtain drivers from the vendor. If you click the Bluetooth icon, the Bluetooth preferences pane opens. In Figure 2-15, the top window shows the Bluetooth properties of this Mac and the lower window shows the paired devices. Click the Set Up New Device button to search for and pair with your phone [Hack #11] .
