Default Is a PIN really necessary?

Please Login to Remove!

When I transfer files via Bluetooth between my PC and my 8310 I have to enter a PIN at both ends, is there a way to change the settings so that I don't have to enter anything? I use the default PIN '0000' but I'd rather not have to enter anything when pairing. When I transfer my address book, I don't have to enter a PIN??

Thanks!

you only need to set it up once....

once they are paired up you don't need to set it up again unless you delete the bluetooth profile...

You don't have to enter it if you set the connection to trusted. If it remains untrusted you have to enter the pin every time.
