    My computer has bluetooth connectivity, would pairing my 8800 and my laptop allow me to do anything?

    I don't believe that connecting to a laptop would offer any additional benefits different from connecting with your PC. Check out this article on Bluetooth connectivity:

    If you find out that it does provide some interesting capabilities, be sure to share and let us know.

    Thanks!

    Get to use bluetooth and not usb cables!!!!

    Follow these steps exactly - you don't use the file transfer wizard until the end

    Each sequences of steps assumes that you are starting from the main menu.

    Pairing BlackBerry and Computer
    On the BlackBerry
    1. Manage Connections -> Bluetooth Options -> Add Device
    2. Select your device from the list of available Bluetooth devices
    3. Enter the passkey

    On the Computer
    1. Enter the passkey when the window pops up

    Configure BlackBerry to Receive Files

    On the BlackBerry
    1. Manage Connections -> Bluetooth Options -> Press the menu key and select Options
    2. Change the Discoverable setting to Yes

    If you want to be able to transfer to your BlackBerry, this setting needs to be enabled. It is not necessary if all you want to do is send files from the BlackBerry.

    Upload Photo from Computer to BlackBerry
    Potential Usage: Transfer a picture to use as a background or for caller ID on the BlackBerry.

    On the BlackBerry
    1. Media -> Press the menu key and select Receive Using Bluetooth
    2. You should see a message on the phone that says Waiting for Connection.
    3. go to bluetooth on computer and click on send file and follow instructions.

    Upload Music from Computer to BlackBerry
    On the BlackBerry
    1. Musc -> Press the menu key and select Receive Using Bluetooth
    2. You should see a message on the phone that says Waiting for Connection.
    3. go to bluetooth on computer and click on send file and follow instructions.

    It works great!!!!! Don't have to download to applications

    I hope this helps everyone!!!
