    I know a lot of people have questions about Sending/Receiving Files Via Bluetooth. Well I put together the steps for that. I know it works for the pearl. And I'm pretty sure that it works for the 88xx and the 83xx. Hope this helps. Any questions then let me know.

    When sending a file via Bluetooth
    1ST- Connect to the other persons phone like you would a bluetooth headset. (enter the pass code of 0000)
    2nd- After you connect to the phone, go to you media options and go to the proper folder (music/ring tones/pictures/videos)
    3rd- Highlight the file that you want to send
    4th- Then press “menu” and scroll down to send using Bluetooth.
    5th- Then, scroll down the list until you find the other device.
    When receiving a file via Bluetooth
    1st- Follow steps 1&2 from above
    2nd- Press “menu” and receive using Bluetooth.
    4th- Then scroll down to the list until you find the other device and hit ok.

    Thanks! Pairing is prolly the most overlooked step for folks coming from wm5 devices.

    no, the bluetooth passcode for pairing devices just has to be the same for both devices being paired. Unless it is a device that has no input source, such as a headset. OTC

    So what do I do if I get the "filename contains invalid characters" error? I've gotten almost anytime someone sends me a ringtone.
