Tour bluetooth doesn't have capabilities to transfer files? (Mac)

[ Edited ]

I try to transfer files from my Macbook to my VZW Tour via bluetooth, and it says the phone doesn't have the capabilities to receive the file??? They are synced together, and my g/f's old 8330 works just fine transferring files over bluetooth with my mac. 

 

What's going on? Ideas?

 

Thanks

Brad

Hi there!

 

Transferring to a BB is not simple...not only must you be paired with the MAC and trusted, but you must initiate the BB receive function prior to the send function on the MAC. 

 

  • Homescreen > Media > BBKey > Explore > navigate to the folder you want the file to reside in > BBKey > Receive Using BT

 

Then initiate the send on the MAC.

 

Good luck and let us know!
