Re: receiving pictures from Andriod via Bluetooth

It can't be... well, try this

 

First, delete all the paired devices within your bb device which are listed (ask the other android user also to delete your device if it is listed)... and try pairing the device once again with the android device you said.. once pairing is done, then go to you media & select receive using bluetooth... at last, ask the other to send files to your bb device & see..

 

it should work if not, you try sending a picture & see whether it's transferring successfully..

 

let us know

Re: receiving pictures from Andriod via Bluetooth

well i did try the method you suggested. Firstly when i goto media, select any media icon then BB menu there is no field to select named" recieve using bluetooth". secondly i am able to send the file to the andriod device and my fd can recieve it well.. I also selected his phone and unchecked encryption but same problem. i also ensured 2 MB is available for space in that media option for pictures. help!

Re: receiving pictures from Andriod via Bluetooth

so far I know, sending is not a problem once the device is paired.. but when receiving, even-though the devices are paired you should see "recieve using bluetooth" option...

 

this might be a stupid solution, but still again worth doing it.. get a back-up of ur device, then try updating the software.. then try again
