    WELCOME TO PINSTACK!

    ok first what are you trying to pair with?
    then..

    are you downloading a .zip file for the theme you are trying to install?
    or is it an OTA?

    are you sure it's for your phone?
    are you sure it's for your OS?

    With the laptop I'd say, why not just use your data cable?

    And as far as the pairing with another phone, what are you trying to accomplish?

    If you are sending media (I.e. Images, rintones, video etc.)
    You are going to need to go into options and to bluetooth have one phone set to be "discovered" and the other to "search" once they have talked you can rename your contact so you know what it is.
    Then...
    You will need to make one phone send and the other receive. To do this go into your media (on the phone you want to send the file to) and go to where ever you want to save the file (music, ringtones,video, voicenotes) and hit menu and "receive using bluetooth". On the other phone go to the file you want to send and hit menu and "send using bluetooth" select the phone you want to send to. And hit send. Should work.

    Also keep in mind I don't have a bold so these instructions may need to be altered depending on how different your OS is from mine.

    On the Bold, Options, Bluetooth, Enable Bluetooth. Then, one of the two devices needs to be discoverable to the other. You can select Options in the Bluetooth menu and make the Bold discoverable. Then kick off bluetooth discovery on your laptop and it should find it.
    Not sure why you'd be trying to pair it with your Samsung phone?? (not sure what you're trying to accomplish here...doubt that the two devices will be able to do anything together) - but, I've never tried to pair two phones together either...again...not sure what the benefit would be.

    as far as adding a theme to your bold it CANNOT be done over bluetooth.
    either you can get it thru OTA from your phone's browser or you have to install it through the DM.

    hmm never tried that as i am a mac user. but ill trust you on that one.
    i still think if youre close enough for bluetooth that a cable is way better
    the only thing is use BT for tethering with my bold
