    I figured out how to do it today. Click on media on your home screen. Click on either music ringtone or picture(whichever type file you want to recieve). This brings up a menu of your directories. Highlight the one you want to recieve it to and push the menu button. That brings up a menu that has a recieve using bluetooth option. Click on it nad a file transfer window pops up saying waiting for connection.Now have the file sent to you and it will connect. You will get an accept window but if you don't want to have to accept each time it has an option not to show it again.When the file is finished a window opens that aks where you want to save it. Just click save and it goes to the place you had highlighted in the beginning. You have to set it up to recieve for every file. It works between my V551 and my pearl so it should work with any I guess. Hope this helps

    Read my post above and try it out. It should work. You have to set it up to recieve before someone starts sending or it will fail.

    you have to go in to your media folder and in the drop menu you have to click on the receive using bluetooth in order for you to receive any media. i hope i explained it to you so you can get stuff you want. have a nice day..

    You guys are all skirting around the problem I am having, but no quite providing the answer.

    My 8100 is bluetooth paired with my laptop and the Blackberry Desktop Manager communicates fine with the device - wirelessly synchronises and all that jazz.

    However, when I try and send a photograph to my computer, using the 'Send Using Bluetooth' option, all I get is 'Failed to Find Service 100%'.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I have solved my problem. Once the BB and the laptop were paired, I could not work out why 'Send Using Bluetooth' always failed.

    But I found what I needed to do was, every time I want to transfer a file, is right click the bluetooth icon on the laptop and select 'Receive File'. Then I can receive it - and will be prompted where to save it etc.

    It is still annoying that I have to do this for each and every file. Is there another way?

    Also - I have a Dell D630, running Vista - so might be a bit different on the Mac.
