bluetooth and media card...
all right, so any time i try to send things off my media card over blue tooth to my friends phone it says something about no service. i can't send anything or recieve it. and we are paired and connected....
then my next issue is, my friend has a razr, and because we cant send eachother anything over bluetooth we decided to switch media cards. when i put her media card in my phone it doesnt read her card...
maybe a dumb question, but do you have a data plan? If Im not mistaken on BB you must have a data plan even to send MMS. Im not 100% sure about bluetooth transfer.
sorry I cant help. A device expert will respond soon. Good luck!
Do you both have the same cell company? Some cell companies lock sending files thru bluetooth on there phones

Check out the steps outlined in Red's MiniFaq and make sure you followed the same procedure.
And your BB wouldn't be able to read her Media Card because its not formatted to work with your BB.

all right. well, after following the mini FAQ it still didn't work. we don't have the same company i have t mo and she has at&t, but i can send her phone things, she just can't send to mine. any ideas?
I had the same problem with 2 t-mobile phones a BB and a Razr could send from the BB just could not receive so idk, with a sprint Razr I could not send nor receive with my BB

Hmm... I have never had problems sending/receiving files via BT... as long as I remembered simple fact: BlackBerry is paranoid bussiness device!

Of course, there is possibility that provider has crippled BT functionality, but that could be good basis for law suit... if your contract doesn't say different.
BT transfer has NOTHING to do with any kind of data plan. It's short range personal area network which provides various sorts of comunication between various devices.
My BT car stereo has no data plan, but BT works... not only with Pearl...

Do realize that to receive anything over BT, you have to navigate to the folder and select "Receive using Bluetooth" from the menu. After you've done this, then have your friend send the file.
If you don't actively say receive, nothing will happen and her attempt to send will timeout.
Exactly....I had a lot of problems receiving through BT when I first got my BB, but as soon as I figured this out, I got it to work....
