    Astro will use a bluetooth file transfer app if one is loaded on your phone

    I have bluetooth file transfer on my phone and was able to send any file using Astro.

    Astro will call bluetooth when you select send then select bluetooth, is that happening?

    After you select send bluetooth from Astro you should get a pop up with a list of applications to choose from, this is where I select Medieva. Then the Med app opens.

    Sounds like your Med app isn't opening after you select send bluetooth.

    I've tested this with a few guys at work and the process works the same for all of us.

    None of our phones are rooted just stock using Astro and med.
    Get those from the market.

    I recommend another new app called YouCast. It allows you to send files from android to android or android to PC without file size limit. You could download from
    market://search?q=pname:com.youcast.android.UI
