    Is there a way I can connect to my Droid Incredible to my computer without a cable. For the purpose of transferring media?

    I haven't used one in a long time, but I would think a bluetooth dongle would work?

    It would, however, it will be the SLOWEST connection possible, since Bluetooth is a serial connection and would connect at 115k. That would take a LONG time to transfer huge files like media not to mention that you have to be in pretty close proximity to the Host computer. IF I were that close, I'd opt for USB connection and transfer at burst speeds of up to 480 MB.

    Just my 2 cents.

    EASIEST is Estrongs File Explorer. It searches all computers on your wirelss network and lets you send files to any of them or retrieve files from any of them. Make sure the computers are set for file sharing.
