On other JSR82 phones I can perform bluetooth communication without pairing, but not on blackberries.
Searching through these forums I see other people bumping up against this same issue, so I know that this is how it is on Blackberries and there is no simple solution.
In my case, I need my application - which is supposed to run on Blackberries with bluetooth v2.0 and OS 4.2.1 or later - to communicate with many different bluetooth devices and I can't ask the user to pair their blackberry with each different device.
Is there ANY sort of solution to this problem?
- Can the application itself add to the blackberries' list of paired devices?
- Could the application handle the system's PIN prompt itself?
- When I initiate an outbound ACL link, does the blackberry OS first check its list of paired bd_addr's, or does it start by attempting a link-key exchange? Let me explain this question. The bluetooth 2.0 spec indicates that the exchange of PIN keys only happens if the link key challenge-response fails. If this were true for the BB then maybe there is hope yet. I don't have a bluetooth sniffer so I can't tell whether this is how it works with blackberries. Does anyone know the answer or is there a document that discusses RIM OS bluetooth at this level?
Thanks for any suggestions,
