I just got a Bold, and I'm trying to transfer contacts from my Nokia N95 to the Bold via Bluetooth. I've succesfully paired the devices, and I can send a contact from the Bold to the N95, but every attempt at the revese fails! I've also tries to send pictures and MP3s with the same restult - "Transfer Failed". I can see on the Bold where it connects - with a "<>" next to the Bluetooth symbol, but it always fails!

I have the same problem with bluetoothing contacts from my N95 to my new Bold. I also tried sending a file via the bluetooth on my laptop, but that didn't work even though the two were paired.
You can send images, videos and music: here's how:
Prep the file on your N95, i.e. choose photo you wish to send, while it's still in the carosel mode, press options, choose send via bluetooth. Before choosing the destination (BlackBerry Bold), go to your bold, scroll to the relevant folder i.e media>pictures then press the menu button, you will see an option to receive using bluetooth. choose this, and immediately go back to the N95 and choose the Bold as the destination. Now the Bold will accept the photo.
I tried this same method for contacts, but it didn't work, so if anyone out there can help us? It would be really appreciated.

Your reply is much appreciated!
The link you posted seems to be thae same as the User Guide that comes on the CD included in the BB Bold package. I've already been through it and can't seem to extract the necessary info, so I think a little more technical assistance is needed in this case. Perhaps anyone with a similar experience who has made some headway?
