Sending / Receiving via Bluetooth on your Blackberry

Blackberry may seem like a very complicated phone, especially for those who have shifted from just a regular cell phone.

One of the many concerns of new users is the Bluetooth feature.

In regular phones like Nokia, sending via Bluetooth is as simple as turn Bluetooth on, detect the device and send file. Receiving is fairly easy. Just make sure your Bluetooth is on and confirm the file being sent when prompted.

Receiving is usually the issue for a new BB user. Some may be able to send but not receive via Bluetooth.

Here’s how:


  1. Turn Bluetooth on.
  2. Go to media (folder) and press the Blackberry icon on your phone.
  3. Select “Receive using Bluetooth
  4. Send the file from the other device.

Your BB will prompt you to choose where you would want to save the file you are about to receive.

Note: Make sure your BB is paired with the device you are sending to or receiving from.


  1. Turn Bluetooth on
  2. Select the file you wish to send
  3. Push the BB icon on your phone > select “Send using Bluetooth”
  4. Choose the name of the device that you would like to send the file to

If the devices aren’t paired, you will not be able to see it among the list of devices that your BB can send to.
