Hi, I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, and today, I'm going to show you how to send files through Bluetooth. Files that you can send through Bluetooth are usually pictures or music, and sometimes videos, depending upon what type of phone you have. You need to make sure that you have a Bluetooth-enabled phone with Bluetooth file sharing accessible. A lot of phones are Bluetooth-enabled, but they do not allow file sharing. These two phones that I have right now -- I have the BlackBerry and I have the Motorola. The...both of these phones support Bluetooth file transfer, and that means that I can pair up both of these phones and then find the other device through a list of devices and send a file to the second phone through Bluetooth. So what I'm going to do over here on my home screen is I'm going to scroll over to media. I'm going to find the file that I want to send. I'm going to send a ringtone over to my Motorola phone. So I'm going to select this ringtone here. Send using Bluetooth from the menu, select the Motorola phone from the device list right here. And it is searching. So then I'm...over here, I'm going to check on my Motorola phone. It's asking if I can accept this file that the BlackBerry is sending me. I've got two options -- a deny or a grant. I'm going to hit grant. It is connected to the BlackBerry. I've got an incoming transfer. It's going to ask me if I want to accept or reject the file that is coming in. I'm going to hit accept. And then I'm going to wait a few minutes for that to transfer in. So it's just finishing up sending right here. And there's the file. So what I can then do is hit store right here. Apply as ringtone or store only -- select one of those. Save it as...pick whatever name you want to save it as. Okay. And it's now stored in the Motorola phone after I transferred it from Bluetooth from the BlackBerry device. I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, and that's how you transfer files through Bluetooth. You can log onto our website at
