    Can't figure this out

    On my old Nokia when I paired another phone I could automatically accept any future files being sent/received

    Can't find this option on my galaxy though which is annoying. I've paired the 2 phones but every time I send a file the other phone says do you want to accept file

    How can I turn this off so the file goes straight to the other phone?

    Yeah think your right

    Can't find answer anywhere. Sad really as all it would need is a 'trust device' tick box next to the other phone

    That's how it was on Nokia phones. Can't complain really as the galaxy s3 is a far far better phone than any Nokia phone I've had

    Yeah i remember older phones doing it. Im guessing its only when connecting to another phone though? surely people using bt handsfree kits dont have to accept the connection each time?

    I remember the days when everyone would leave their bluetooth on and you could sit in the pub or on the train and send pics and messages to strangers. That was cool :)

    It's only a problem when sending from a phone to another phone or tablet. On old Nokia's when a phone was paired you could then simply set it add 'authorised' so any following file transfers would simply get sent without ever bring asked again

    I have a Pioneer double din stereo and the galaxy world great by Bluetooth

    Don't suppose you ever hear of a phone virus called 'caribe'?

    It was Bluetooth related. I got it on my phone one day (without releasing), then following day I was at a music concert, I turned my Bluetooth on and EVERYBODYS phone in Bluetooth range went off lol it was nuts. I only noticed following day it was my phone that caused it. Must have been at least 60 phones go off as the Bluetooth search I did for my mate was going on for over 10 minutes

    Was very easy removing the virus
