Default Bluetooth File Transfer Problems

Please Login to Remove!

** Posted this in the 8130 forum as well

Hi everyone.

Having a problem transferring files from my Mac to my Pearl 8130.

First off, I have successfully setup tethering between the two devices. So the whole pairing process has been successful. In addition, I have no problems transferring from my Pearl to my Mac.

When I look under BT options on the Pearl, it shows that Data Transfer is checked. When I look at the Pearl Services on my Mac's BT menu, Data Services is not present. When I then try and send a file from my Mac to my Pearl, it says the device does not have the proper services.

BT is on, and I have done a battery reset but not luck.

Any ideas?

Make sure you have set the Pearl to "receive using bluetooth" before trying to send from the mac.
