Can't receive/send files over bluetooth...

[ Edited ]

Hello all.

 

I cant send/receive files to & from any other phone (Bold 9700 running OS 5.1.0.146 with Organge UK) as well as my laptop (HP Pavilion dv6000 running 32 bit Windows 7 Home Premium) through bluetooth.

 

However in all occasions my BB pairs successfully pairs with all the phones & laptop. But it seems Windows can not find drivers for the BB bluetooth and as such Windows has marked the drivers for 'Bluetooth peripheral device' as missing.

 

I made sure my BB bluetooth is turned on, is discoverable and has an unique name.

 

Any help would be truly appreciated!

 

Best regards

Ashraf

Hey all.

 

Found a solution to the problem in the forums HERE. Although its for Curve I know it applies to all BB. The related KB is HERE.

 

Got it working on my laptop as well. Followed what xbabe82517  did:

 

''In the end, I had to delete the pairing on both the laptop and my phone. But then instead of setting up a new pairing, I selected a file in my computer and clicked 'Send to Bluetooth device'. Obviously there were no paired devices so I clicked the option to search for a new device. It found my phone and I then completed the steps - which were exactly the same steps as pairing them - but it then worked and the file sent to my phone!''

Hope this helps anyone else suffering from the same problem.

 

Regards

Ashraf
