Question cant get BB to bluetooth with my macbook pro! HELP

Please Login to Remove!

i try to send some pictures over bluetooth from my curve 8330 to my macbook pro and i get a message when i try to connect them on my computer that says "this device doesn't have the necessary services". i check to make sure the BB was discoverable and that under the services menu all of the boxs are check like "headset, handsfree, data transfer... etc" what could i be doing wrong??

i also did do the initial 'set up a bluetooth device' and it says the BB is paired in the bluetooth preferences.

I believe it has to do with the order used when you initiating transfers. I wish I could remember specifics, but I do recall having this issue. I believe I may have had to initiate the transfer from the Mac side, not using the "send using bluetooth" command on the Blackberry.

Try doing things in a different order, and if it doesn't work hang tight. Someone more knowledgeable than me will come along and help you. I can tell you that my experience with this problem had an easy solution, so don't lose heart. You will get it working.
