When you want to receive a bluetooth file do the following:

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.

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.

you should select the option "receive via bluetooth". in the media menu, press the menu button (the bb symbol) then select receive via bluetooth, then send the file. you will then be able to receive files from other phones.

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.

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.

I cannot bluetooth my contacts from my old sony ericsson 850i to my new blackberry 8320 even tho i have paired them,help please D.


unfortunately you cannot send address contacts via bluetooth with the blackberry.
you can send media files
go to the media folder you want to receive into and click the menu button and select "receive via bluetooth." Then send the file from the other phone. You have to do this for each file you send.

Good Luck and thanks for using FixYa
