Right, now as of this date, if you get a new 8700, you will have 4.1 installed. With 4.1, you must transfer ringtones from a website, using your BB browser, to your BB. Ringtones do not transfer via BT, email or mindmeld.
Under 4.2 OS, you can use Media Manager for most all media transfer to the BB device, as well as BT transfer, which you would understand if you read this thread above, with at least two posters saying bluetooth transfer works. To upgrade your 8700 to 4.2 OS, read this thread link below, and follow those instructions. Questions about the process are best posted in that thread. http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...h-chinese.html
