    we've just bought a new MacBook white from sir Charlie (2.0ghz C2D)
    and the bluetooth isn't working properly.
    i can send files from the macbook to another bluetooth device, in this case my phone (Nokia e51). but I can't seem to send files from my phone to the macbook thru bluetooth.
    my phone's bluetooth works fine and it sends files to other phones with no problem at all.
    what should we do? please help TIA

    care to share to solution?

    I am also having this problem and my work around is to just browse the phone content and memory card thru bluetooth then just copy the file to my Mac but sending directly to my Mac, it keeps on saying failed even though it is set as discoverable and they already paired.

    I am using 10.5.7 anyway.

    go to System Preference > Sharing
    then click the Check Box for the Bluetooth Sharing (it's on the bottom of the list) on the List on the right side.
    that's what did the trick.
    katangahan ko pala is what prevents the macbook from receiving files thru bluetooth. hehe!
    have a nice Independence day!
