    Bluetooth ringtones TO 8703e from other devices?

    Advertisement



    Can/How do I receive ringtones(MP3's) from other phones through bluetooth? I've paired with devices successfully, but the other devices aren't recognizing me. I've already made myself discoverable and all that. Am I missing something else?

    Also, my roommate and I are the both the proud owners of new Blackberry's. I have the 8703e(Cellular South) and she has the Pearl(AT&T). We've put each other in as contacts on the BB Messenger, but each of our devices say that the other is still "Pending Approval". wtf? We both approved each other!
    THanks for any help.

    Sarah, got to OPTIONS> BLUETOOTH>OPTIONS then make your bb discoverable so the other phone can find you. My wife and I swap ringtones all the time and she has a standard cell not a BB. But by default its set to NOT be discoverable.

    I would just try a battery pull to see if it fixes the BB messenger issue. if not delete them and retry to add but only one of you send the request.

    Good Luck

    Messenger thing worked!!! Thank you SOOO much!

    On the bluetooth thing, I'll have to try that when I get home, but I had ALREADY made myself discoverable if I'm not mistaken. But perhaps the batt pull will help with that, too. Thanks, mikadad.

    It's possible that the Bluetooth is crippled like all of the other phones that Verizon has. I'm guessing that that's the case. If it is true, then it would mean that it's not possible todo a bunch of the "standard" features that bluetooth has to offer.

    My device is through CellularSouth, not Verizon. But still, you're saying it may just not support the transfer of mp3's through bluetooth?

    IIRC you can't transfer files on 4.1 BB's.

    you can not send it by bluetooth due to your sofware vers!!! you have to go to websites like tuneusin on ur bb and download straight from ur phone works real slick!!!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i will add the pile. As stated with the 4.1 software ur not able to pass anything with bluetooth. With 4.2 there should be vast improvments. Just as the 8703e you can pair up a full stereo bt headset, however it won't work.
