Default Cannot receive bluetooth files

Please Login to Remove!

My Blackberry Pearl can send files to any phone via bluetooth, but anyone attempting to send me a file gets "connection failed" or a similar message. One of the people at the at&t store told me this is because of some setting, somewhere in the phone, but was not sure exactly where. Can anyone help me set my phone where I can both send and receive files on bluetooth?

Go to the Media app, browse to the folder you want to store the file in. Then hit the menu key and select "Receive Using Bluetooth."

Make sure you have a memory card installed or your files will be size limited to 2.86Mb.
