Default Using Bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,
Newby to all this, but have been visiting the forum for a couple of weeks now. Have a brand new Pearl and love it.... BUT...

It has a few little quirks that Im not sure about... Sorted a couple, thanks to advice on this forum... but still have a number of questions.

Bluetooth.....

I cant find this on any of the pages on this site, but if ive missed something please feel free to point me in the right direction.

When I want to send something via bluetooth, say a ringtone, Why do I have to pair with annother device first?? surely there must be a way of just hitting send and choosing a device that is in range instead of having to search then pair first????

Advice please (Am I missing something realy obvious?)


Excuse sppelling...

bluetooth uses a pairing process for security reasons. you don't want people just shooting files at you.

yeh, I understand what you meen but, If say i want to bluetooth a ringtone to someone.... With my old Nokia I would select the ringtone and hit send... the phone would then search for devices and display all in range (advertised) I would be able to select one and enter the agreed code eg. 0000..... the transfere would take place (without pairing) and off both parties would go, v. happy etc..... just seems a bit of a pain having to 'pair' with a device first.... whenever I want to send something, if I havn't gone through this pairing process first, I cant send the file.

Bigger picture.... small whinge about an otherwise fantacka peice of kit!


P.S. still havn't found the spell check for this thing yet!

what you are describing with the nokia was actually a pairing process. the part where you enter the code is the pair. it sounds like nokia has a nice clean way to do it figured out, though

Go to the 8100 programs link in my signature. Then go to programs and download BBCorrector.zip. It's a spell check for the 8100.
