    You heard wrong there's no such as yet. You can you third party apps to transfer pics to you BB via USB. I use GTPhoto there's a couple others out there.

    Re: 7130 Bluetooth data patch

    I thought i heard it from a BB trainer when i was doing data training as a part of my job but i may of picked him up wrong. What i thought i heard was that there was going to be a patch on the cd rom that came with the bb so that you could choose to be able to use the bluetooth for data if you wanted too. I will ask him when I do the next part of my Blackberry "Black Belt" training.

    This seems unlikely to me. BT profiles are usually regulated by the carrier, not so much the phone manufacturer...but hey, anything's possible.

    tomaspistola, Welcome to PinStack.

    Bluetooth has nothing to do with the carriers network. It is strictly a device related technology. BT will work even when the Phone Radio is turned off. And RIM has been slowly adding capabilities to the Bluetooth application on the BB Devices, from strictly head set connection when it first came out, to certain BT keyboard connection and now to BT Sync with you PC using Desktop manager. If any further expansion of the BT capabilities is forthcomming, it will be through an OS update.

    Hope this helps
    Rcbjr.

    Re: 7130 Bluetooth data patch

    the new pearl seems to handle data bluetooth, do you think it would be possible to update the software on my 7130g to the same version on the pearl to enable BT transfers?

    Re: 7130 Bluetooth data patch

    brodgar, it may or may not accept the 8100 software. That's a pretty big change. Most BB's won't accept software from a different series. Or ones with major hardware differences.

    Maybe Version 4.2.x.xxx for the 7130g/c will include most of the non camera functions of the 8100

    Hope this helps.

    Re: 7130 Bluetooth data patch

    Hey RCB,

    I tried to use BT for anything on my 7130e. It married with my laptop but anything I tried to do it indicated "7130 not compatable for Syncing" or whatever I tried. Just what will BT and 7130 do??

    Well I'm not rcbjr, but ill try to help.

    The 7130 will only support bluetooth headset profiles. RIM thought it best to please security conscious business professionals and not support data transfer via Bluetooth. As you know blackberries are the PDA of choice by many million dollar corporations and rim did not want to alienate them.

    Hope that helps!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~as a further note to my previous post, intill the 8100 pearl I don't think any BB supported Bluetooth data transfer. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, fellow stackers.

    Re: 7130 Bluetooth data patch

    thanks JCH. I had pretty much come to the conclusion but didn't know why. It would seem to me that would be a goo feature. from what I can see there is enough security.....then again I don't work in an office of 100 of these things either.

    thanks again

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~no problem. That's just what the RIM reps told me when I asked them the same question. I think with the introduction of the pearl, this may be the beginning of a new more feature rich era of BBs with the ability of data transferrs for all!
