  • LaChicana May 23, 2008

    It looks like the only things I can bluetooth are contacts and calander events. I've called Sprint for help, and they are clueless. I've also tried to set up folders within my sd card, and that doesn't work either.

    cannot recieve music or pictures via bluetooth on the rumor it says it's an unsupported media type

  • latashiB Sep 14, 2008

    I cannot receive bluetoothing on my sprint LG Rumor. It says that unsupported media type when my sister tries to send me music through her blue tooth. I also can't find away to send my music through bluetoothing. I have a LG Rumor not LG KG800 Cellular Phone.

  • kvandenberg Oct 18, 2008

    Same issue - I can't receive ringtones after i'm paired, even though it asks if I want to accept a data transfer, then the source says that it has successfully transferred 100%. Really Annoying!

    what in the world ii mean why cant ii do this man itz getting to me...........

  • Anonymous May 03, 2009

    Alright so I still have my LG Rumor from Sprint..I agree its a piece. I was on my second Romor (the first just tripped out one day, never dropped it) but that was after battling with Sprint to give me a new one. When I upgraded to the rumor I got it for the fact that it had BLUETOOTH and a qwerty keyboard. All you can do with bluetooth on the rumor is send contacts and calendar info, why the heck would I want to send either of those..."Oh hey Im sitting right next to you, I could just tell you my number but I think Ill bluetooth it to you instead" or how about "hey what are you doing tomorrow?" "hold on ill bluetooth it to you!" What were Sprint and LG thinking? Are they effin new? As far as ringtones you can get those for free on VENTONES.COM and dispite the fact the rumor sucks you can get some real useful apps on WAP.GETJAR.COM stuff like opera mini and mig33 ect. last time I looked there were at least 2,000 apps for the rumor. I got sick of sprint though and my fiance added me on her plan, Ive got a Motozine Zn5 now. Its a ton better than that rumor. If I were you Id switch providers and get a phone that works. Sorry to disappoint.

    I talked to GMC and they said the phone is compatible and it did work fine with our old phone. Tried to delete and reload again a couple of times but that did not help.

Sprint did this intentionally. It was done in order to prevent trading copy righted material, to gain more money for sprint since you will have to buy their tones and what not. Also this was done to help prevent the spread of viruses. Your highspeed cellphone is more like a macro computer than you may think and they are succeptable to viruses as well. Do I think its trash, YES I DO. We should be able to use our phones as we choose, but this is what you have and why - Viruses and money......

I have myself a LG Rumor and I know the problem... What you need to do is go to menu/tools/bluetooth/settings/exchange FTP Folder/options/change exchange FTP folder/music...(PS you will need a micro SD memory chip to do this... Now once you have done that you can right click your .mp3 file and go to send to bluetooth.. search for your phone and it will send... then go to media player and you have your music... BUT I still havent figured out how to send it as a ringtone. sorry for the inconvenience..

Not many sprint phones let you transfer ringtones or ringtones through bluetooth, most only send contacts and other useless things.

I am having the same problam i really need to sort it out before i could send and recive but you try and turn on the bluetooth and then it goes off straght a way

Posted on Jan 21, 2008

Well i said no more buying ringtones from sprint,im not putting more of my money into that sucky company. So i found a website that you can upload songs to then send them to your phone. It will send you the link in a text which if you have internet ( i do) it works out perfectly & its free because your uploading your own music. You can also do this with pictures & make it your background. The website is www.myxertones.com Hope this helps :]

On Mac,
Spotlight search for "Bluetooth File Exchange" and then
Cmd-Shift-O will let you choose a device to browse
Then you'll be able to access your exchange folder (you can change that on the phone under menu/settings/bluetooth/change exchange folder) and take files in or out.

No idea how to do it on windows though

If you have Sprint, there is no way to bluetooth anything other than Calendar events or a phone entry. I was upset about this when I figured this out. I upload songs to http://rumkin.com/tools/sprint/ and send the ringtones to my phone.

This is very simple if u have a mac. when u have ur bluetooth turned on, on your computer and sprint phone or whatever phone carrier, the top tool bar near the clock and finder near the right top part of the computer screen will have a blue toth symbol set up your blutooth device and then go to browse device. and then click the send button and it will bring up files that u can send to your computer. then from your phone go into settings and make sure ur exchange is set to memory card,"u need a memory card for this" and it will pair up and you will find ur music in the media player on your phone as im typing this im sending songs so I know it works.

I hate this piece of ******** ******* phone. It will not let set my music as my ring tones. The music isn't able to be sent through blue tooth. I mean for real what **** is this? On top of that all, on my LG Rumor they don't send Head Phones or USB cords with our phone. All they know how to ******* send is a little booklet and they phone. Sometimes with a charger that works here and there. Your lucky if you can even get that ****.

If you have Vista do the steps mentioned ab ifve with the menu\settings\bluetooth\settings\change ftp folder and set it to media card. then go into my computer and drag and drop your music, movies, pics etc... into the rumor icon with the bluetooth icon on it. your set.

Lg rumor bluetooth


You cannot unblock it. They have SAID, now this is also a rumor which i'm about to talk about, that you can go into the phone, and hack into it and change a SEEM edit inside of it. But ALLTEL can find out about it if something were to ever go wrong, if they really wanted to, and void every warrenty on the phone that they could think of. So essentially, you may not unblock it. Your stuck. All LG's do this at ALLTEL, and US Cellular and Verizon as well, so it's not just Alltel. The only phones that are still able to do so is Blackberry, Motorola, and the Windows Mobile phones i do beleive. Also, if you receive one through a Picture Message, and you save it, Alltel also blocks it as well. Several friends of mine have alltel, and hate their new LG's.
