    Frustrated With Bluetooth, Any Ideas??

    Advertisement



    Hey everyone, I have a question I am hoping someone can help me with. This is not my first train wreck on the BB train but this one is got me stumped. I have the Curve 8310 and my daughter has the Pearl 8110. We have been paired on each others phone, no problem. Our problem comes in when we try to transfer files to one another. It starts off okay, then it says searching for device (after one or the other has been selected), shows 100% but it isn't it says Failed to Find Service. What is that all about? If bluetooth is on and set up, then what is the issue? Any ideas? Any information at all would be helpful.

    And yes, this happens weather I am sending to her or she is sending to me. It is so FRUSTRATING!

    Not sure why the bluetooth isn't working but you can transfer files to each other via Blackberry Messenger. Have you tried that?

    When your daughter is sending you something via bluetooth. Go to the file you would like to save it in then click on the menu/receive using bluetooth. Then have her click send using bluetooth.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    That's correct. Whoever is receiving the information must go into media, then hit the menu and choose receive using bluetooth. The phone has to be in receive mode to actually get the file, even if the phones are paired to eachother.

    Thanks! We do transfer files that way as well, but there are others in my family that do not use the BB. So, this was an issue that had me stumped. Thanks again.

    Thank you for letting me know. I sure don't remember having to do that with my other BB but, who knows. Maybe I did? Thanks again for the information.
