I had the same exact problem wondering why in the world can I send but not receive?! I even turned off the firewall thinking it had something to do with it but it didn't. I did a bit of digging around on the internet and found a solution. I have a Pearl 8110 and I found this info for the storm and added some minor info in brackets. Just tried and it works ;)

Here you go:


1. Open the Media app.
2. Select a media type (e.g. Music)
3. Press Menu.
4. Select Receive Using Bluetooth.
5. Select Yes. (It will then ask you the location you want to save to but of course by default it will select the proper folder)
6. Select Save. (Transfer will begin

Yes, I also did alot of research and I finally found the secret, its what weysey just explained! This is my first bb and all the other phones that I had in the past, you actually had to accept the file after it was sent to you, in the blackberries you have to accept it before it is sent to you! Hope this make sense....

I can't Install Java Games i my Samsung A767 ...Its always Says "Unsported Files"


hi i think u might have directly copied the games to ur phone's memory card via data cable doing so may result in the phone saying unsupported files but since ur phone is java supported and the games will work for sure u can install the games via bluetooth enabled laptop or even u can use a bluetooth dongle to install the games in ur mobile.To install the games in ur mobile via the dongle follow these steps:-
1.first plug in the bluetooth dongle in ur system and ur PC will detect it,as soon as it detects the device go to the START menu PROGRAMS ->ACCESSORIES->COMMUNICATIONS->BLUETOOTH TRANSFER WIZARD and click on the ur system bluetooth wizard
2.switch on ur mobile bluetooth and search for any paired device u will receive a prompt message as soon as ur system detects the mobile and will ask u to enter the password type the same password which the system will generate and ur mobile will be paired u can then select a game file and send it in ur mobile from the PC via the dongle as soon as the file is copied u will receive a message in the mobile to install it type yes and there u go the game will be installed.
u can also try using another phone switch on the bluetooth device of the other phone and copy the file in the targeted phone via the bluetooth .was this useful to u if yes pls do rate my solution and u can also send ur views via the testimonials thanx fr visiting fixya
with warm regards - bonefirediv.

I bought my son a blackberry curve 8250 a few days ago. I cannot send any files to his new phone via bluetooth, even though the phones do pair with each other. Please help!


When you send over bluetooth on a blackberry and the handset pairs you need to select the file type you are send and be in the folder to received. Once in that folder you need to click the blackberry key and select received via bluetooth.

Can't use wi-fi without data plan? on blackberry bold 9700 can't transfer pictures from laptop to blackberry either?


you can surf the net on a wifi network even of you dont have a data plan. turn the wifi on then select "set up wifi network" then just follow the instructions to be able to connect to the network. if you still can't after doing this, it might be because the signal of the network is not that strong.
regarding the bluetooth, go to media, then press the menu button (the bb logo), then select "receive via bluetooth" for your bb to receive the file from your laptop/other phones.
