    MacBook 10.6.8 (yes, we of the ancient days . . . ): Attempting to transfer my flip-phone contacts via Bluetooth to my MacBook

    - Both Bluetooths are activated
    - When the phone makes contact with MacBook, the phone asks for a MacBook PIN -- apparently, numerical
    - I don't recall ever using a numerical PIN on my 2006 MacBook -- it has always been a password (numerical/alpha)
    - Attempting to use my regular MacBook password results in Bluetooth not recognizing it
    - So, no Bluetooth connection to the MacBook

    Any information/suggestion(s) about how to successfully facilitate this transfer?

    Much appreciated.

    Wow, got me on this one. Unless the macbook does not recognize the phone as it's too old? dunno. Good luck in your quest.

    Try entering the PIN as 0000 or 1234 and see if it works
