    As far as i know, and have tried the last few days, you cannot transfer files between other mobiles via bluetooth. I have tried today from my sons mobile (nokia n85) to my Hero, the Nokia finds the Hero but then fails to send. I also tried to send from Hero to Nokia but would not work :( I have however managed to connect it to my bluetooth stereo lol!

    Checkout BLUEX

    http://www.cyrket.com/package/com.alex.BluetoothFileshare

    RECEIVING FILES REQUIRES ROOT, SENDING WORKS WITHOUT IT

    So, you bought the phone and you found out that it cannot do a simple task as sharing via BT. Duh!
    This app comes to the rescue. It lets you send and receive files to/from other phones and devices that use the standard Obex Push protocol.

    Not All machines are created equal ... The OBEX drivers are not necessarily the same ... I had two different results from computers running XP Pro ... so
    your results will probably vary depending on the specific machine and the obex drivers installed ...

    Just what I'm looking for. Would love to transfer the contacts info from my Tocco to the G2.

    I can't find that bluex on the market tho. Are there any others?

    I solved the problem by installing the SwiFTP server. I only wanted the bluetooth to transfer files from my computer. This does the job fine.

    BlueX is not working on Hero. We should wait for a new version.

    Hi Guys,

    I have an HTC Magic and the Bluetooth file transfer software from Medieval. I have only ever installed software direct from the online Mark. Can someone please tell me how I actually install this app on the phone manually? The files are on the phone but I cannot locate them on it. I know where I put them but just cannot find them when I try to navigate on the phone itself.

    Thanks

    Yep I just downloaded it from Market and it says we need 2.0 or higher
    for this to work on the Hero.
    Oh well. :)

    Peace,
    Andrew.

    i e-mailed back saying ..no..not really as you haven't really told me anything..lol..
    then i got told the usual...connect through your p.c...or e-mail...not any help 'cos the person that i was trying to send stuff to is a dinosaur...never used a p.c. in his life...so i'll just have to wait for upgrade.
