Bridge Over Wifi

Greetings,

 

The bluetooth on my phone keeps turning off.

 

The manual says that I can use BlackBerry Bridge over wifi, but it doesn't say how to set it up. How do I enable this?

 

Thanks,

Shane.

Re: Bridge Over Wifi

Sorry, you misread something. It uses the shared WiFi network to connect to the internet. It will try to connect (while bridged) to your PB's WiFi, then move on to your device's WiFi, then as a last resort will try to connect by using your Data Plan (on your BackBerry)

Re: Bridge Over Wifi

The manual says "When your smartphone and tablet are connected using BlackBerry Bridge, and both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, BlackBerry Bridge apps can exchange information between your devices using Wi-Fi instead of a Bluetooth connection."

 

What part did I misread?
