The 8700 can't receive files via bluetooth. It may be able to if it's been upgraded to OS 4.2, though.

You can upgrade the 8700 to 4.2 by following the instructions in this thread:

http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...2-1-101-a.html

Keep in mind that the 8700 has very little extra memory for storing files. You are limited to 2.86Mb per file for the transfer.

And I believe you can only send pics and tunes.
