Default bluetooth file transfer

Please Login to Remove!

I think i'm having a problem with the bluetooth file transfer. I can pair with my wifes samsung d807, but we cannot transfer files. we are paired... what's the deal? I can pair with my lappy, and still nothing. the only option i get when i connect to my lappy is the voice call where the call goes through my toshiba laptop.

I also have a MacBook shipping to me in about a week. how will i transfer files with the MacBook?

Thanks for all of help, i'm very much a newbie (the pearl is my first blackberry)!!

once you've paired the two devices, use the 8100 to go to the folder where you'd like the file to be sent, click menu>recieve file via bluetooth, then just send the file from the other device, and click accept on the 8100.
