Question about RIM BlackBerry Bold 9700 Smartphone

1 Answer

Recently just got my new 9700 bold but am having problems with the bluetooth function. I cant seem to receive any files from other bluetooth devices?? I read somewhere that on Blackberries you need to go to media, press the receive using Bluetooth option and then it works, but on mine it consistently says waiting for connection?? I have already paired it with these devices, but it just seems to disconnect and says it is unable to transfer files?? Can someone please help me and tell me where im going wrong?? Thanks

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.
