    I don'T know about the BT modem but the BT transfer will only work between BBs not other phones

    I also have an Axim X50v and Pearl 8100. It would be great if they could work together. With that, and a bluetooth keyboard, who needs a laptop?

    But as I scan the Internet for a solution to this, it is not looking good. All I keep seeing is the same as the comment above - "you can't transfer files from the BB to other operating systems via Bluetooth - only between BBs".

    That doesn't seem right - but it may be only because I don't want it to be right.

    Help! Does anyone out there know any tricks???

    mmuller, Welcome to PinStack.

    With the Pearl, why to you have to use the PDA at all, with a Bluetooth Keyboard and the Pearl you have almost the same capability. I'm not sure what you would gain by the PDA in terms of added capability.

    I can use the bt modem on my laptop with my pearl (without the pearl plugged to my laptop via the cable). This doesnt help you though as you have to be able to edit settings for the modem (from the pc side - when it installs the drivers). I know what youre trying to do as I used to connect my Nokia 6820 to my PDA by bluetooth. Who knows tho, it could be possible, just maybe not reported. good luck
