Well i have 8700C with 4.2 or w/e

well. Bluetooth works juuust fine with my friends RAZR (receiving files and what not)


but when it comes to two other friends of mine's phone. It just says invalid characters. I dont understand. and both of those friends have LG phones. I can send files to them. but it wont receive. so some help would be greatly appriciated.

The 8700c doesn't have much memory for holding files like that. What types of files are you trying to transfer? There is a device memory limit of 2.86Mb, as well.

mp3's.

Quote "Hood niggx.mp3" We thought it might be naming convention but the OP stated they had tried editing the names.
