Connecting two PB's via blutooth?
Is it possible? how can it be done?
Recently a friend and i were trying to figure out how to transfer files from our respective devices, but i couldnt figure out how to pair the two PB's together. Is this functionality even possible? do i have to wait for OS2, or am i just missing something?
Also, im assuming theres a limit to file size when connecting through bluetooth.....like i wouldnt be able to transfer a whole movie would i?

Bluetooth is limited to keyboards, mice and Bridge pairing or - on OS2 - audio devices. I don't think RIM has announced file transfer functions, but they never announced audio gateway support either, it just appeared in OS2. Anyway, bluetooth is very slow. I wouldn't try to transfer a movie.
If you are both connected to Wifi you could use Dropbox or Box.net. Files & Folders (see sig) supports both. Both of those services impose a limit on the maximum file size though.ORBIT for BB10 - The World In Your Pocket - World, Time, Weather in spectacular 3D. Demo on our site!

I do know how to transfer files using WIFI but that is only when I have a WIFI connection. I was looking for a way when I am out and about.
I could pair the devices but I could not do anything besides this. Wished I'd read this post before I wasted my time.

I don't understand what's going on. Blackberry is known for having many functions making it the best communication device. I understand the email calendar and bbm being missing but you would think some of the other functionalities that were not included would have been no brainers. I know 2.0 is around the corner but it worries me that this is what we are to expect from RIM. I really hope not
