1. Go into "Media" on your BlackBerry and enable incoming files (Menu-->Receive using bluetooth).

2. Find the file on your friend's device that you wish to send, and beam the said file accordingly.

2a. If you have not "paired" (created a friendship between) the two devices before, you will need to do this first...

2b. One of the devices will ask for a PIN code first and on this device you need to create a four-digit, numeric password that can be anything you like.

2c. On the second device, enter the four-digit, numeric password you created and follow the simple, on-screen prompts on both devices to complete the pairing (you can also pair the devices in advance by going into Menu-->Set Up Bluetooth).

2d. Depending on the devices being used and the time taken to complete the pairing, you may need to re-send the file (go back to step 1), otherwise, continue below...

3. When your friend's device tries to send you the file, your BlackBerry should ask you to name the file and where to save it; if you have not set the device as "trusted" in the bluetooth settings (Options-->Bluetooth-->your friend's device), you may need to approve the file transfer first though.

4. The file should now be on your device.

Note: by default, all * Pictures are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/pictures or /Media Card/BlackBerry/pictures if you have a memory card.

* Sounds (including songs) are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/ringtones/ or /Media Card/BlackBerry/ringtones/ if you have a memory card.

* Videos are saved /Device Memory/home/user/videos or /Media Card/BlackBerry/videos if you have a memory card.

In other words, unless you specify somewhere else in step 3, this is where you will find your file.

And remember, your incoming file transfer WILL NOT WORK UNLESS YOU FIRST "PAIR" (CREATE A FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN) THE DEVICES, go into Media and CLICK MENU-->RECEIVE USING BLUETOOTH!!!

even though trusted relation established, why do we need to say "receive using BT" each time and is there anyway we can save files on "DEFAULT "location without prompt!!!

I don't think there is any way around the prompt.
