Blackberry 8110 - cant receive bluetooth stuff

My friend has a Blackberry 8110, we have tried to send music and pics from my Nokia to her phone via bluetooth, but her Blueberry keeps saying failed. When we try to set up the automatic bluetooth connection between our phones that also won't work.
We've tried with another Nokia phone to her phone but got the same problem.
Any ideas/solutions, please?

    Have 3 blackberry 8110, I want to add music, so I go to music, and click on Recieve Using then says waiting for, on the Sony I have, I find it and send to blackberry, sony says " waiting for other device to accept...on blackberry it says "please choose where you wish to save I click on folder, it just opens up folders, I click to select where I want it, I go to save, it says transfer failed, I click cancel, the same thing...I do not believe that the Blackberry 8110 is capable of sending and I said, I have three, NONE will accept anything...I did, however, manage to send phonebook...but that's as far as I have been.

I had the same problem with the 8110 it wouldnt connect to any phone I tried Nokia, Samsung etc even another BB. It would pair but sending would fail. The solution make some room. It doesnt tell you when its full or even that you cant send because its full it just fails. Empty of some media files , mp3`s etc or get an expansion card to put them on then it will work.

How to receive pics frm Nokia to black berry..

Hello Anwar,
You have to pair both devices first.
turn on Bluetooth on both devices
look for Bluetooth setup>pair devices>search for devices (may not be exactly but somewhat close)
in the search list look for you Nokia device
select it and enter a pass-code (on both devices)
now the devices are paired
then, on your Blackberry, go to Media>receive a file
send the file from your nokia and accept the request on your blackberry
your BB will ask where you want to save the file, select the folder and you're done!

Blackberry 8100 wont pair withbluetooth stuff

Hi, i think when you are about to send something via bluetooth you have to go in media, click the blackberry button and press receive using bluetooth, it is to stop anyone sending you unwanted data via blue tooth. Hope this helpsXXX

Can send, but can NOT receive via bluetooth on BB 8110

I contacted the supplier and found out that the handset is faulty. As it was not a simple technical problem, they will exchange the handset- hopefully with a faultless one!

I can send files via my blackberry pearl 8110 bluetooth, but iam

1. Go to Media.
2. Hit the menu key (left of trackball) and select Explore.
3. Browse to the folder you want to store the file in.
5. Hit Menu key again and select "receive using bluetooth."
6. Send from the other phone.

You'll have to do this for each file individually.

Also make sure that you have paired with the device you are trying to receive from. In my limited experience i noticed that NOTHING transfers unless you are paired.

There is one more setting I would check, go to OPTIONS/SECURITY/GENERAL SETTINGS/make user the the
option for CONTENT PROTECTION is disabled.

Nokia 6288 will not send multimedia txt

If you are sending it via bluetooth,
ensure you have enough free phone memory.

If you are sending the stuff via MMS,
Ensure that the image is of appropriate memory size.

Also, tell me, by what method/way are you sending the image, so that I can help you better.

Please rate.
