    Question HELP!!!!HELP!! Someone....3rd Post......Receiving using Bluetooth

    Advertisement



    hey everyone...this is my 3rd attempt to get help on this issue!!! my last two previous posts were never responded to! but its okay

    Anyways....I'm having trouble receiving images through bluetooth when pairing with a coworkers phone (she has an LG-CU500, and is also AT&T like mine)....She's sent me MP3's and images before, but sometimes when she tries to send me an image, I get a window/warning that says "Image contains invalid characters", and it won't let me save/receive the image!! she tried renaming the image on her phone and tried sending it again...but still NO GO!! Does anyone know why? or has someone had this problem and know how to fix it?? its a little frustrating...........Thanks in advance

    Alright you need to know the file type that the LG-CU500 is in. Also does the name have weird letters in it? You could have her put it on the PC then you get it from the PC.

    Have you tried picture metadata info or something in picture properties(rigt click pic, properties). Just guessing,not sure what the problem is but it seem it is embeded in the picture.

    Oops, hit post too quickly. As for the invalid characters it has something to do with the way her phone is saving the files. Not all files will be compatible with BBs. Especially with certain phones having special formats for themselves.

    PS - LG phones suck chicken butt - primarily because they don't synch well with BB's at all! I just gave up on bluetoothing (word of the day- hehehe) my friends that have LG phones.
