First you need to activate BT and pair it up with the other device. Either search or wait for them to detect you. Then, add the password. Once you've paired up, go to the main menu, then go to multimedia and press menu again. In the list it should say Recieve via Bluetooth or something like that. Then once you've done that, tell the other person to send you the file. Choose where you want it to save and press save.
Sometimes when I take too long I get an error saying the it was impossible to send the file (on the other phone) but once I press save on my BB it recieves it perfectly.
Hope this helps. I sometimes can't recieve vids through BT, anyone know why?

Like, when I try looking at vids through youtube it asks me if I want to change to my Wap connection. I can only use wifi for youtube right now. So try and make sure that there won't be any extra fees hidden around in there for wap or 3G connections.

But, for BES you'll probably have to activate it for extra. I'm not really sure about that. The best thing would be for you to ask your phone carrier about the plan. Like I said, in my country, Blackberry's have their own plans with their own services activated.

Hmm, I have a question - it may sound really stupid, but I'm not sure and I would rather BE sure! I'm looking to get a contract with a free blackberry curve 8520, and I'm just wondering - does it come automatically with free internet, or does that depend which network you get it with?? thanks

Based solely on its outer look of 8520, I can say that it's the most attractive BB I've ever seen. Really!

If I hadn't bought my HTC Touch Viva (which is doing fine), I would surely buy this Curve! oh yeah!

Hey fellow Gemini users! I've only had this phone for 9 days and I can't seem to be able to make my web browser show updated web pages. It seems that it only gives me the page saved in the caché. I always have to go to menu/refresh or update (mine is in spanish so I don't know the correct english translation). I noticed this since I always try to comment on here and read new comment but I don't see any new comments or my new comment until I refresh the web page. Any idea on how to make it automatically update pages for me? Thanks!

i'm getting one as a work phone and think it not having 3G is a bit strange! but that should mean the battery life would be very good! i'll have to wait and see!
