Re: Transfer files using Bluetooth from non black berry phones

I do not believe that file transfer via Bluetooth is a supported feature with the PlayBook. You can do certain types of file viewing when using a BlackBerry with bridge enabled, but that's not the same thing.

You can enable file sharing on the PlayBook and then transfer via WiFi or USB connection.

Re: Transfer files using Bluetooth from non black berry phones

The limitations of the PlayBook are simply unbelievable. Bluetooth file transfer is something I'm used to having and using since the first mobile phone I got, nearly 10 years ago. I guess this is one more "security feature" of the PlayBook. No brains, no tumors, as they say.

 

Fail.
