    My mother and I paired my droid to her blackberry. We then tried sending pictures back and forth. When she sent to me, everything worked fine, but every time I tried to send, it give an error that it cannot connect. Anyone know how to fix this?

    many times when i pair things, they aren't exactly connected. the droid waits for confirmation of a strong connection to exchange files. check the settings on the blackberry to ensure a strong connection and that it is able to receive images and files

    DROID doesn't support OBEX, and pushing things from the DROID is next to impossible, but the BB *does* support OBEX, so it *can* send.

    Isnt that what the app Bluetooth File Transfer is for?

    yeah, but every time I tried that app I still had major issues with it.

    It just would not work.

    TBH, I haven't tried it after the 2.0.1 update (been racking my brain trying to remember if I had) - gonna try it now.

    If it doesn't support it, then why is one of the built in options "Send Via Bluetooth"?

    This one deserves to be resurrected...

    I've sent videos and pictures from droid to a paired droid via BT with no problems.

    Receiving droid gets a message in the Notification Bar "Blah Blah is trying to send you a file.. ACCEPT, etc."

    Seems to work for me. Haven't tried to a Blackberry yet.

    One thing that I forgot to mention. You have to pair both directions. Just having one pairing is only one-way transfer, I was able to send when paired, but not received from unless the sender phone was also paired to me separately (reverse process)

    It could be the other way around though, I don't quite remember -- but it works ;)

    When I first ran into that app, they were *trying* to get it working. Like I said, I have not tried it since the 2.0.1 update, b/c I have had other things on my plate, but I'll try to give it a shot again and see if I now have Push or not.

    Indeed. Stickified would be better, but I doubt that will happen.

    Was that using Bluetooth File Transfer, or natively via the DROID OS?

    Hmmm - never thought about that either. Of course, for the longest time I had major issues with pairing in the first place as my computer had stupid drivers for my BT dongle....

    That has never happened. Is it possible that you have more than one BT source around you?

    yes it very well may be likely

    I just want to say we got it working and copied from the droid to blackberry. I've got the Samsung Galaxy S2.

    First download the Android application "Send via Bluetooth" because the built-in bluetooth does not seem to ALWAYS work.

    On the BB you need to go in to a media application (like video, photos, etc), then in the menu select "Receive via Bluetooth". It will the say waiting...

    Then on the droid choose the video/picture and on the menu choose "Share via" or whatever. Then choose "Send via Bluetooth".

    The BB will then ask to accept.
