How send things from my bbplaybook.

Hi there,

I was wondering how can I send pictures, music, etc, from the bluetooth of my bb playbook.  I've configured the bluetooth, but I cant find how to send files to another device like my laptop or another blackberry playbook or another blackberry phone (without bridge). Someone have any idea? thank you a lot.

i dont think sending files thru bluetooth is going to work.. there's no option for that.. the only thing that you can do is to use the BB desktop mngr..

You can copy pictures, videos, docs, etc from the playbook to a PC via WI-FI assuming you have a WI-FI Network. This would be similar to "sending" them except that the action is performed on the PC. Directions are in the manual.

Well for transferring files from PlayBook directly like the way we do is currently not possible.

 

So for that you have two options:

 

1. Either connect your Playbook through Bluetooth or USB plug cable to your laptop and open your BlackBerry Desktop Manager for file transfer.

 

2. Access your playbook while keeping your bluetooth ON through any other device for copying any media files, like we do it with other phones.

 

Hope either of these options helps you to transfer files!

Yes you can for any other BlackBerry device, same as following the procedure via Bluetooth connectivity (without even having BlackBerry Bridge app on your phone).

 

Accept as solved with the Query or press Like if you are convinced with the solution.

 

Thanks.
