    I have been using astro to send files via bluetooth. I noticed however, that the type of files you can send is limited. It seems I can send pics & MP3s, but not PDFs or APKs for example. If i try to 'send' them in astro, I only get the mail or gmail options. Is this normal, or can't I drive the phone properly again?

    Thanks

    apk - nearly 15,000 bytes - no bluetooth

    pdf - almost 900,000 bytes - no bluetooth

    jpeg - over 2,000,000 bytes - works ok.......

    hang on. got it round my neck.

    Astro doesn't seem to send anything. Photo app sends photos, mp3 via music.

    Astro just says it's sending, but the recieving phone gets nothing. now i'm really confused

    Astro did this to me too, in-fact, I couldn't send anything via Bluetooth with Astro installed. Had to bin it in the end :-(

    astro doesn't seem to work bluetooth properly. It's very good at locking up bluetooth mind after trying. Shame really, it's a really useful other than that.
