    Hi Guys,
    Can anyone tell me how I go about naming my phone and I have been trying
    this morning (No work today) to find my Hero on my N95 via Blue tooth but the N95 can not locate the Hero, only 2 LGs that are next door.
    Any idea why that should be please?

    Peace,
    Andrew.

    Did you make it visible to other devices?
    Settings>>Wireless controls>>Bluetooth settings>>Click discoverable

    Also you can't send anything yet; Bluetooth 2.0 is coming on Android 2.0

    Thank you Mate. :)
    If I cant send, is it possible for me to send any pictures
    via Blue Tooth from my N95 to the Hero?
    Peace,
    Andrew.

    I don't think so. I THINK there might be apps that make it possible, but I haven't been able to find any. If you're pics are on a memory card you can copy them over via your PC maybe? It's certainly quicker than bluetooth.

    Really shortsighted by HTC I think when they launched the phone to have
    Blue Tooth but not fully like every other phone.
    Roll on 2.0 then. :)

    Peace,
    Andrew.

    PS

    Thank you for your replies. :)

    NO probs. As far as I know, the iphone didn't have bluetooth for a long time after it weas released either. I don't get why developers do that, I mean, it's BLUETOOTH! Oh well.

    Same way as you make it discoverable, it's in the same menu :)

    You have to have bluetooth on to be able to rename it. Not sure why.
