Cannot share iPhone contact with macbook pro? HELP

I am the proud owner of a iphone 5 and a macbook pro. I need help concerning the contact transfer, i'd like to have my iphone contact automatically transferd to my macbook.
Thanks community

I just discovered that I am having this problem too!
I figured that there was a problem when trying to pair instead if being asked to input the code on my iPhone, I was simply asked to 'Confirm that the PIN code XXXXX is being shown on the MacBook Pro'
On the iPhone, the MacBook Pro is then shown as 'Not Connected'
When I click on it on the iPhone, I get the error:
'Connection Unsuccessful'
'MacBook Pro is not supported'
'Forget this device'
I don't have any other issues with headphones and headsets connected to both devices and other phones, a Samsung and two Nokias, connecting to the MBP.
There seems to be no way to initiate pairing from the iPhone.
Frankly, this is ridiculous.

  • Can't pair iPhone 5s with Macbook Pro via Bluetooth

    I have an iPhone 5s and Macbook Pro with retina display (running on iOS 8.0.2 and Yosemite respectively). For some reason, my iPhone can never see my MBPr but the MBPr can see the iPhone. Pressing the "Pair" button on in the Bluetooth setting panel in OS X will trigger the pairing confirmation to show up on my iPhone. After confirming the pair request, the devices remain connected for no more than 2 seconds. Then they just disconnect. (The status is "Not connected" underneath my iPhone on the Devices list in OS X)
    This has been bugging me for a while, even before I upgraded to iOS 8 and Yosemite. I was hoping the upgrade will solve the issue but apparently not. My iPad  on the other hand has no problem in connecting and remaining connected to my MBPr. That's just baffling.
    Just some context: the reason why I wanted to connect my MBPr and my iPhone via Bluetooth is because I want to use my my iPhone as the hotspot. Yes, I can use the USB cable, but can't blame me for trying the wireless route (And no, connecting via wifi doesn't  work)
    Any help is appreciated!

    Hello everyone, any ideas on how to connect my iphone to my mac, both my devices are paired but i haven't been able to connect them, every time I try to connect my iphone to my mac I get this error "Network is unavailable - Male sure network access is enable", I have tried forgetting the devices and paired them again and resetting the network settings, and even changing my iPhone's name.

  • Moving iTunes Library from iPhone 3G to MacBook Pro - Help Please

    I bought my first MacBook Pro last Summer and have since bought a second. Problem is, my iTunes library is on my company Dell Latitude 620 and my iPhone 3G. How do I get the library to my MacBook Pro?

    If your iTunes library on your PC at work includes music and video that was not purchased from the iTunes store, you need to transfer your iTunes library from your PC to the Mac that you plan on syncing iTunes content with. This can be done with an external drive, or with CD/DVD media.
    If all or most or all of your iTunes library on your PC at work includes music and video that was purchased from the iTunes store along with 3rd party apps, iTunes includes an option to transfer iTunes content that was purchased from the iTunes store from an iPod or iPhone, but this is for iTunes content that was purchased from the iTunes store only.
    If you haven't already done so, you need to authorize your Mac with the same iTunes account with iTunes that is used with iTunes on your PC at work - with the Mac that you plan on syncing iTunes with.
    With your iPhone connected and without syncing, at the iTunes menu bar go to File and select Transfer Purchases From - the name of your iPhone.

  • Wireless Printing with Macbook Pro Help

    I just upgraded from an older G4 desktop to the macbook pro. I have a Canon Pixma 180 printer/scanner. Everything works with the desktop. I think I had a little challenge with the printer driver on the printer but all is good for the desktop.
    For the MBP internet access I am using the NetGear RangeMax. It works great.
    I would like to get rid of the G4 and just use my MBP. So this weekend I got a Linksys DPR 1260 print server. It says right on the box that its good for Windows and Mac. After I got it home. No instructions. The setup software is all for windows. I called their help line and all I kept getting was "we have a lot of difficulty with Mac's".
    They did not know what to do. I know.... I am bring the print server back.
    So I thought that I would get Apples Airport Express. But I have been reading lots of comments that this is somewhat problematic??
    Does anyone have a good wireless solution to printing? Would it help if I get a different printer?

    Hi Bob,
    I have a 9 year old Apple Laserwriter (PS4/12) that is not networkable that I managed to connect via a crossover ethernet cable to my Airport Extreme base station. This is then hooked up to my very old (appletalk) printer via an ethernet/appletalk converter, which you will not need, as your printer is much newer. If you have a USB printer, you may be able to connect it to the Airport Extreme via USB, and it will work, too.
    If you can hook up your printer via an ethernet cable to an airport Extreme, you can print wirelessly to the printer. I have been doing this for over 1.5 years, and it has helped me to keep an old, but reliable, printer functioning.
    I realized that this is kind of confusing, so here is my configuration:
    My cable modem is hooked up to my airport Extreme via an ethernet port (blue cable). My printer is hooked up to my airport Extreme via a crossover ethernet port (i.e. green cable). In order for my computer to "see" the printer, I then made appletalk active from my Airport.
    This then lets me print to my printer from either my powerbook G4 or my macbook pro.

  • Sync'ing iPhone Contacts with MacBook's Address Book

    Hey folks, just bought my first Mac which has an empty address book and I am just wondering if it is possible to transfer my iPhones contact list with the Mac's address book.
    And then if and when I make any changes or additions to either then they will sync when my iPhone is plugged into iTunes?
    Also, similar question with my iPhone callender and iCal?
    Thanks in advance,

    Hi! I have a similar problem, which happens quite often because I usually charge my iPhone 4 by connecting it to MacBook and at the same time the synchronization is done.
    If I edit my contacts in Mac's address book, there's no problem, the sync will work. But if I edit my existing contact on the phone, for example by adding a number, changing any data or adding a custom info type, these will be lost after the second sync with MacBook. It's probably because during the first sync the data is not updated in Mac's address book and then in the second one the contact card from Mac is transferred back to the iPhone.
    Any remedy to that?

  • I cannot sync contacts between my iPhone 4s and MacBook Pro after I upgraded the Mac with the latest operating system software upgrade. Even the Mac Store couldn't help...

    I cannot sync contacts between my iPhone 4s and MacBook Pro after I upgraded the Mac with the latest operating system software upgrade. Even the Mac Store couldn't help...

    That is because that sync ability (for contacts and calendars) has been removed. Use iCloud instead.

  • Cannot upload any images from iPhone 4 to Macbook Pro. Please help!

    Hi all,
    I'm pretty much tearing my hair out with this one, I don't know what to do - I simply cannot upload any photos from iPhone 4 to Macbook Pro.
    This problem appeared out of the blue. I am trying to upload to iPhoto - not working. I have clearing the cache - not working. Tried the Dropbox app - not working and the option has now disappeared altogether. Tried Image Capture - not working. I went and had my iPhone replaced altogether - still not working. I thought it might be a problem with my iPhone or a problem with the back-ups or sometthing so I plugged in my boyfriend's to scope it out - still not working. I have restarted all devices many times. I have read through posts and posts about this and cannot find an answer.
    iPhoto says: unreadable files - unrecognized format - not true!!
    Image Capture just says there is an error importing.
    Any help would be much appreciated - it's driving me mad!
    Thank you!

    Theres almost a trick to it for first time users, goto SETTINGS...General......Cellular (if Verizon) ....Personal Hotspot, turn it on.....turn on wifi on your Mac, select your Iphone.  Enter password.
    If you take too long doing it, youll need turn turn off and on real quick the "personal hotspot" slider on the Phone.......then go quick again thur the Mac.
