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.
