Does anyone know why i can't send files from my Macbook pro via bluetooth? I just click the little bluetooth icon on the top right on my laptop and click send file.... it brings up a msg saying "Device does not have the necessary services"

I love my blackberry and i love my macbook... but i can't seems to make them work together.

Might want to look/post int he MAC section or do a search. I remember that question popping up a couple of times. Not a MAC expert however.

Are you setting up the BB to receive the file first? Go to Media, then go to the folder you want to receive the file into and hit the menu key and select "receive using bluetooth." Then send the file from the computer. No guarantees that's the only issue, but I know you can't do it without this step.
