    Not bothering me. I didn't even know people used Bluetooth file transfer. Must not be all that common.

    Try looking here:
    Android | Official Website

    My Treo did it. It was the bomb for transferring contacts too. Trouble was I only knew like 2 other people with a Treo to transfer to. Used to trade games that way all the time.

    I was very surprised that the G1 couldnt do it. I thought it was a standard feature of bluetooth, along with being able to play music through any headset...grrrr

    From what I understand the additional bluetooth functions beyond headset were either problematic or a security issue and are being worked on. With Google it's not a question of "if" it's a question of "how soon?"

    blue tooth is way to easy to hack into.
    it is because of this that google and many other phone developers are being more careful about what you can do on bluetooth

    Save yourself a lot of grief and yelling by plugging in that USB cable and transfer away at much higher speed.
    Or get BT File Transfer which works on mine just fine. But I still prefer a cable or sticking the SD card in the PC.

    Holy crap, Batman -- you mean you just dropped 400$ for a product without doing any research despite the large amount of information right at your fingertips?

    Holy crap, Batman -- you just dropped 400$ on a new phone without making sure it had a must-have feature you need?



    Really?

    yeah well thats the great thing about android.
    although you may not be able to do it normally, there's an app that'll let you do it.

    Hello,

    Use following code for Bluetooth File Transfer

    ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
    values.put(BluetoothShare.URI, "content://" + uritoSend);
    values.put(BluetoothShare.DESTINATION, deviceAddress);
    values.put(BluetoothShare.DIRECTION, BluetoothShare.DIRECTION_OUTBOUND);
    Long ts = System.currentTimeMillis();
    values.put(BluetoothShare.TIMESTAMP, ts);
    Uri contentUri = getContentResolver().insert(BluetoothShare.CONTENT_URI, values);


    for more details refer following link

    KP Bird: Android: Send Image via Bluetooth

    enjoy....

    Hi ,
    I tried the below code, for sending file over bluetooth OPP. But it is not working.

    Please suggest any change.

    public class BtAppExample extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.main);

    String filePath = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString() + "/Munnar/1.jpg";
    Log.e("BtAppExample","Uri is: "+Uri.fromFile(new File(filePath)).toString());
    ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
    values.put(BluetoothShare.URI,Uri.fromFile(new File(filePath)).toString());
    values.put(BluetoothShare.DESTINATION, "90:4C:E5:D9:0E:D0");
    values.put(BluetoothShare.DIRECTION, BluetoothShare.DIRECTION_OUTBOUND);
    Long ts = System.currentTimeMillis();
    values.put(BluetoothShare.TIMESTAMP, ts);
    Uri contentUri = getContentResolver().insert(BluetoothShare.CONTENT_URI, values);

    }
    }

    Manifest file :

    <application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name">
    <activity android:name=".BtAppExample"
    android:label="@string/app_name">
    <intent-filter>
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
    </intent-filter>
    </activity>

    </application>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_BLUETOOTH_SHARE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH_ADMIN" />
