Question Blackberry Bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Blackberry Curve 8320 and I bought a Widcomm bluetooth device for the computer so I can connect my phone to my computer and transfer files. However when I try to set it up, the only services it gives me is the option to sync, use dial up modem, and use speaker and microphone (which I don't know how to do) but no option to use phone for file transfer. Even when I tried on a different computer without the Widcomm software installed and just microsoft software but I do not know how to transfer files to and from my phone. When I open up desktop manager and configure it to see my bluetooth and my pin and all that then the option for media manager is grayed out and the only one i can get to is the sync option. Is it possible to make my blackberry pop up in my computer with bluetooth? Is there something I need to install on the blackberry itself to add this service? Thank you.

If the software for the dongle includes drivers for the other services, go into the device manager on the PC (or possibly something like Bluetooth Settings from the icon in the system tray "fruit basket") and check the properties/services list. That may offer you the option to add what you need.

Also check on the BlackBerry for the same list it has listed for your PC.

But what you want to do is very tricky because when the handset "feels" connected, the computer sees the Micro SD card as just mass storage, and probably won't see it as Bluetooth-connected mass storage (check My Computer to see if the drive shows up).

Wouldn't it be a ton simpler and faster to just stick the Micro SD card into a card reader and do your file transfers that way?

Ok I guess I will look for that then. But the reason is that it would be VERY useful to be able to add music and add software to my blackberry without having to move my computer and plug in the usb cord to the back of it. But ill give that a shot thanks!
