Actually the BB must be set to recieve mode for the particular item you are trying to send to it.
In the case of the 7100 series I'm not sure of the exact menus, but in the 8XXX series it is always go to media select the media type press the BB key to bring up the menu and select recieve using bluetooth.
You should be able to recieve from any device that can be recognized both ways.
Also check the make sure your bluetooth security settings are set to "prompt" you when a device is trying to connect.
If you need step by step instructions for any of these elements just post a clarification request and we'll go from there.

My blackberry 8520 stops reciving music halfway through when using bluetooth


firstly check to see if the format of the music you are sending is correct.
secondly make sure devices are both paired together
thirdly and most importantly make sure your blackberry device can receive the bluetooth connection. this is usually done by going to menu>media>select music> options and scroll down and select receive file via bluetooth or something to that effect.
blackberrys are not straight forward when it comes to sending files via bluetooth. hope this helps

I cant receive anythin om my bluetooth yet i can send,,,my device cant be paired


Hi,the BlackBerry Pearl is a versatile mobile phone. It's primarily a Smartphone that's suitable for business use but it's also equipped with some decent entertainment features. The pearl can also play music files which you can enjoy with the help of a hands free Bluetooth headset. Let me teach you how to pair a Blackberry Pearl Smartphone to a Bluetooth headset.


Things You'll Need:

* Blackberry Pearl Smartphone
* Bluetooth headset

Turn on your Bluetooth headset by pressing and holding the multifunction button.


Check if the LED light is a solid blue. Turn off the headset and repeat the first step if the light is blinking.


Activate the Bluetooth wireless connection on your BlackBerry Pearl by Going into your "Settings" menu

Select the "Options" menu to go to your connectivity settings

Click on the "Bluetooth" option to activate the connection


Choose the "Add Device" option on your BlackBerry Pearl to locate the headset


Wait for a while as your Smartphone locates the Bluetooth headset


Enter 0000 for the password after selecting the headset to complete the Bluetooth pairing process


After that, your Done !!!!you can now send and receive. But after following this instruction and no solution yet, that means there is something wrong with your blue tooth. Corrupted. You will need to reset the phone.

Blackberry 8700c Problem.


Your Blackberry 8700 has a older version of bluetooth which does not allow file transfer. That is the reason your phone does not receive anything. The bluetooth version on your phone is designed for hands free bluetooth devices only.

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!!!
