I have hundreds of images on my mobile right now and want to transfer them via bluetooth to my PC running Windows XP.

I don't have a data cable or a bluetooth adapter.

How do I transfer data from mobile to PC?

Shouldn't your bluetooth adapter come with one? – Phoshi Feb 9 '10 at 9:51
@Phoshi it must detect my mobile device via bluetooth – Oscar Feb 9 '10 at 9:53

What do you want to do with it? What device are you trying to connect? What should it transfer? Please add this info to your question – Ivo Flipse Feb 9 '10 at 9:55
@Ivo see my EDIT – Oscar Feb 9 '10 at 9:58

Without an adapter your PC simply cannot do bluetooth. This is a hardware problem, not a software problem.

You can buy a USB adapter for fairly cheap, which will come with all the required software to use it, and should interface fine with any bluetooth device.

You could also hardwire the phone into the machine using the correct usb cord ( may have been sent with the phone ) – Luke Russell May 2 '12 at 15:25
