    Re: bluetooth problem

    It all depends... I tried to pair my blackberry with my friend's Nokia and nothing happened. You can see the protocols that are available. You're going to want to look for something like file sharing or something along those lines. It all depends on your phone though and the one you're trying to connect to. Bluetooth for phones is mainly for wireless headsets though. I feel your pain though, I was stoked when bluetooth phones came out and I was like, "Yes! Now I can pair it with my laptop without using USB and have some real fun!" But no, not until I got my Pearl was I able to do that.
    "Mmm... Vodka and pie..."

    I have an 8700 and a few freinds with treo's. They are unable to send me anything either. we can pair the phones and that's it.

    Now correct me if I'm wrong but I think the problem is that the bb pearl doesn't have the ability to do file transfers through bluetooth. If you look at the bluetooth device options (options>bluetooth>options) then you will see your bluetooth device services and that shows everything that your device is capable to do using bluetooth. What it doesn't show is OBEX under the services. This is what allows phones to do file transfers using bluetooth. Many phones have this but apparently the bb pearl does not.
    I think there is another thread on the forum that explains what OBEX is. I will look for that and leave a link if i find it.
