Default Blue tooth connectivity issue with my 8900

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys

I am new to owning a Blackberry. I am having issues with my 8900 connecting to another mobile for date transfer. I have paired the other device and gone through all the blue tooth setings and made the 8900 discoverable. The other handset picks it up but when I try to send a file it says connection failed.

Can any one advise me where I am going wrong. Knowing my luck it will be a simple fix I have over looked.

Thanks in advance.

Pretty sure you need to choose (on the blackberry) "Receive using bluetooth" in the location of where you want the file to go

Yup, goto the media icon and hit the menu button, choose receive using bluetooth and you're set.
