Receiving information using Bluetooth

Receiving information using Bluetooth

Your phone is capable of receiving a wide variety of file types with Bluetooth, including photos, music tracks, and documents such as PDFs.
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.
To receive files using Bluetooth, you need to have a microSD card on your phone.
  1. From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Wireless & networks > Bluetooth settings.
  2. If the Bluetooth check box is not selected, select it to turn Bluetooth on.
  3. Select the Discoverable check box.
  4. On the sending device, send one or more files to your phone. Refer to the device’s documentation for instructions on sending information over Bluetooth.
  5. 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.

    A Bluetooth authorization request is then displayed on your phone.
  6. If you want to automatically receive files from the sending device in future, select the Always check box.
  7. Tap Accept or OK.
  8. When your phone receives a file transfer request notification, slide down the Notifications panel, tap the incoming file notification, and then tap Accept.
  9. When a file is transferred, a notification is displayed. To open the file immediately, slide down the Notifications panel, and then tap the relevant notification.

    When you open a received file, what happens next depends on the file type:

    • Media files and documents are usually opened directly in a compatible application. For example, if you open a music track, it starts playing in the Music application.
    • For a vCalendar file, select the calendar where you want to save the event, and then tap Import. The vCalendar is added to your Calendar events.
    • For a vCard contact file, if there are multiple vCard files on your storage card, you can choose to import one, several, or all of those contacts to your contacts list.
