Question Bluetooth File Transfer

Please Login to Remove!

Greetings,

I haven't been able to share files between my Style 9670 and PlayBook over Bluetooth, so I've been trying it over BlackBerry Bridge. Using Bridge on the PlayBook, I can view most file types, but when I go into File Manager and try to view videos on my phone, I get an error message saying "There are no files that can be opened by PlayBook". Apparently this means that Bluetooth doesn't support viewing (streaming) videos in real-time.

Is it possible to copy videos to my PlayBook, instead of streaming them?

Thanks,
Shane.

You should be able to stream and copy videos to your PB.

You can do this connected via USB or WiFi.

The Knowledge Base article refers to wifi sharing and USB transfers (not Bluetooth). Also, I don't have a Style 9670 (not a BlackBerry 10 device).
