Sending information using Bluetooth

You can use Bluetooth to send information from your phone to another Bluetooth enabled device such as a phone or notebook computer.
You can send the following types of information, depending on the device you are sending to:
  • Images and videos
  • Calendar events
  • Contacts
  • Audio files
The first time you transfer information between your phone and another device, you need to enter or confirm a security passcode. After that, your phone and the other device are paired, and you will not need to exchange passcodes to transfer information in the future.

Before you begin, set the receiving device to discoverable mode. You may also need to set it to “Receive Beams” or “Receive Files”. Refer to the device’s documentation for instructions on receiving information over Bluetooth.

  1. On your phone, open the application that contains the information or file you want to send.
  2. Follow the steps for the type of item you want to send:
    Captured photo or video After capturing, on the Camera preview screen, tap the Share button , and then tap Bluetooth.
    Photos or videos
    1. On the Albums tab of the Gallery app, choose an album.
    2. Tap the Share button , and then tap Bluetooth.
    3. Choose the items you want to share, and then tap Next.
    Contact
    1. On the All tab of the People app, press and hold a contact, and then tap Send contact as vCard.
    2. Select the Send contact-Bluetooth option.
    Calendar appointment or event In Day view, Agenda view, or Week view, press and hold the event, and then tap Share vCalendar > Bluetooth.
    Music track With the track displayed on the Music app’s Now playing screen, press MENU, and then tap Share > Bluetooth.
    Voice recording On the main Voice Recorder screen, tap the Share button , and then tap Bluetooth.
  3. Turn on Bluetooth if you’re asked to do so.
  4. If you haven't paired with the receiving device before, tap Scan for devices.
  5. Tap the name of the receiving device.
  6. If prompted, accept the pairing request on your phone and the receiving device.

    Also enter the same passcode on both your phone and the other device, or confirm the auto-generated passcode.

  7. On the receiving device, accept the file.

Where sent information is saved

When you send information from your phone using Bluetooth, the location where it's saved depends on the type of information and the receiving device.

If you send a calendar event or contact, it is normally added directly to the corresponding application on the receiving device. For example, if you send a calendar event to a compatible phone, the event is shown in that phone’s calendar application.

If you send another file type to a Windows computer, it is normally saved in the Bluetooth Exchange folder within your personal document folders.

  • On Windows XP, the path may be: C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\My Documents\Bluetooth Exchange.
  • On Windows Vista, the path may be: C:\Users\[your username]\Documents.
  • On Windows 7, the path may be: C:\Users\[your username]\My Documents\Bluetooth Exchange Folder

If you send a file to another device, the saved location may depend on the file type. For example, if you send an image file to another mobile phone, it may be saved in a folder named “Images”.
