Re: BlackBerry Bridge update has full BlackBerry10 support

It appears the BB Bridge with BB10 phones incorporates internet tethering.  I previously had a BB Bold and was able to tether PlayBook to its internet connection. using the tethering setup icon on the PB settings screen.  However I was having no success tethering to my new BB Q5 phone.  I then found that I had full internet access when BB Bridge was active.  The separate tethering section on PlayBook's settings screen therefore appears to be redundant and in fact non-functional when a BB 10 phone is involved.

Re: BlackBerry Bridge update has full BlackBerry10 support

For several versions of PlayBook OS you've been able use Wifi transfer between the Playbook and Z10.

 

Unless I still don't understand your question.

Re: BlackBerry Bridge update has full BlackBerry10 support

I'm having a devil of a time getting this to work. I have a Z30 that I'm trying to transfer pictures over wifi to my new PlayBook.

Both are connected to the same wifi signal, but every time I go to share the picture it's not finding the device.

I've gone into settings on the PlayBook, to storage and and sharing, and have enabled it, but still nothing.

Not sure what step I'm missing...

Re: BlackBerry Bridge update has full BlackBerry10 support


There's an app on both the Z30 and Playbook called Files and Folders which might be helpful.
