Bluetooth

iphone doesnt detect other devices iPhone has no A2DP Bluetooth profile, and it has been a real surprise. It only offers HSP/HFP Bluetooth profile (Headset Profile/Handsfree Profile) for mono headsets, which is not enough – you can use it only for phone conversations. A2DP's first distinguisher is Stereo of high quality for music listening. White on BlackWhite on Black is used to invert the colors on the iPhone display, which may make it easier to read the screen. The screen looks like a photographic negative when White on Black is turned on.

GPS
Yes, with A-GPS support

You can hack your 3GS to enable some additional bluetooth functionality. You'll need to jailbreak (use Comex's Spirit jailbreak on 3.1.3 OS) and then purchase BlueNova from the Cyida Store. This enables device-to-device file transfers, though isn't compatible with all devices and can be buggy.

I have a my65t and it won't retrieve the contacts off my iphone 3GS. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Andrew


The problem with the iPhone 3GS is that it can only detect audio devices through Bluetooth (if your using Bluetooth) an alternate you could do is look in the app store for a Bluetooth file transfer

I have iphone 3gs and my bluetooth doesnt work?


Bluetooth on the iPhone cannot transfer files to other phones if that's what you're after. You can transfer some files to another iPhone using an app in the AppStore. Most of them are free and can pretty much do all the work for you. One example of such app is 'Bump'. If you're trying to turn ON your bluetooth and it doesn't work, it may be a hardware issue and needs to be checked by a hardware expert.

About transferring media files
You can connect your BlackBerry® device to your computer to transfer files between your device and your computer, or you can use
Bluetooth® technology to send media files to or receive media files from a Bluetooth enabled device.
If you connect your device to your computer, you can transfer files between your media card and your computer using mass storage mode,
or you can transfer media files between your device and your computer using the media manager tool of the BlackBerry® Desktop
Manager. For more information about using the media manager tool, see the Media Manager Online Help.
If you turn on media card encryption and you transfer files to your media card using mass storage mode or Bluetooth technology, your
device does not encrypt the transferred files. If you transfer encrypted files from your media card using mass storage mode or Bluetooth
technology, you cannot decrypt the files on your computer or on a Bluetooth enabled device.
Transfer a file between your device and your computer using the media manager tool
1. Connect your BlackBerry® device to your computer.
2. On your computer, open the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager.
3. Double-click Media Manager.
4. Drag a file or folder from one location to another.
For more information about using the media manager tool, see the Media Manager Online Help.

Blackberry curve won't pair with my bluetooth headset


Hello,

Try the following. Hope this helps.

Okay,


1. Go into "Media" on your BlackBerry and enable incoming files (Menu-->Receive using bluetooth).
2. Find the file on your friend's device that you wish to send, and beam the said file accordingly.
2a. If you have not "paired" (created a friendship between) the two devices before, you will need to do this first...
2b. One of the devices will ask for a PIN code first and on this device you need to create a four-digit, numeric password that can be anything you like.
2c. On the second device, enter the four-digit, numeric password you created and follow the simple, on-screen prompts on both devices to complete the pairing (you can also pair the devices in advance by going into Menu-->Set Up Bluetooth).
2d. Depending on the devices being used and the time taken to complete the pairing, you may need to re-send the file (go back to step 1), otherwise, continue below...
3. When your friend's device tries to send you the file, your BlackBerry should ask you to name the file and where to save it; if you have not set the device as "trusted" in the bluetooth settings (Options-->Bluetooth-->your friend's device), you may need to approve the file transfer first though.
4. The file should now be on your device.


Note: by default, all
* Pictures are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/pictures or /Media Card/BlackBerry/pictures if you have a memory card.

* Sounds (including songs) are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/ringtones/ or /Media Card/BlackBerry/ringtones/ if you have a memory card.

* Videos are saved /Device Memory/home/user/videos or /Media Card/BlackBerry/videos if you have a memory card.

In other words, unless you specify somewhere else in step 3, this is where you will find your file.


And remember, your incoming file transfer WILL NOT WORK UNLESS YOU FIRST "PAIR" (CREATE A FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN) THE DEVICES, go into Media and CLICK MENU-->RECEIVE USING BLUETOOTH!!!
