    Hi all,

    I am newbie to all this and must admit to being slightly too much in love with my shiny new Hero phone...

    Anyways quick question, I was trying to bluetooth over my ringtones and videos from my old phone to this one but my old phone was not finding the HTC when it came to sending files.

    Now, I know the HTC doesn't support Bluetooth file sharing (or so I have read elsewhere on this forum). I have downloaded the Bluetooth Transfer by Medieval Software which looks a decent programme but it will only work if both phones have the software installed (and as my other phone is a fairly old Sony Ericcson W880i that's not an option).

    So, does anyone know of a bluetooth app that will allow me to transfer my files??

    or, failing that, can anyone think of a different work around to get files off? Memory cards are not compatible and I have lost the Sony PC wire...

    Any help would be amazingly appreciated!!

    BT or wire transfer your files from SE to PC then copy them to phone

    I've lost the Sony wire (as mentioned) and I don't have a bluetooth dongle...

    Sounds like I will have to get one or the other??

    Pick up a card reader that accepts MS, copy files off to PC that way? Maybe cheaper and certainly faster than a dongle.
