Just got a BB 8130. It's my first BB and my first smart phone. So far I'm loving it! I had a quick question regarding the 8130's Bluetooth capabilities.
I am able to pair my 8130 to my Samsung A900, but I can't transfer anything in either direction.

On my A900, under Bluetooth, Trusted Devices, BB8130, Options, Info, the Name, Address, Device Type, Supported Profiles properties are shown. The only Supported Profile showing for my 8130 is DUN (Dial Up Networking). The other phones (A900, A610) under Trusted Devices show OPP/FTP as being Supported Profiles. Is there a way to change this?

With the current pairing I can see both devices from the other. If I try to send a file from my 8130 to my A900 the Bluetooth indicators light up on both phones and it shows the progress bar transferring the file, but when it's done the file doesn't show up where it should on my A900. If I try to send a file from my A900 to my 8130, my 8130 doesn't even show on the list to transfer to. I am assuming this is because the 8130 doesn't have the OPP/FTP profile.

Any ideas?
