Re: unable to recieve contacts from pearl to bold via bluetooth

The Bold doesn't seem to support receiving contacts via Bluetooth. Rather annoying huh?


It does recognise vcards in email though so I suggest you email yourself all your contacts as an attachment. A bit of a drag to manually click "Add to Contacts" everytime but it gave me something to do on the train...
