Hi I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker and today I'm going to show you how to transfer files between Bluetooth enabled phones or devices. So I have two phones, I have a Blackberry and I have a Motorola. What I'm going to do is I'm going to transfer a picture from the Blackberry to the Motorola. I already have these both paired together with Bluetooth, that's something you need to look into your owner's manual of your phone to find out how to do to pair phones together. And so I already have these two paired. So one the Blackberry what I'm going to do, I'm going to go into the phone and select the picture that I want to send. This applies to any phone, you can just find a picture that you want to send, hit the menu key and scroll down to something that's to the effect of send using Bluetooth. On some phones that may be phrased a little bit differently, but on a Blackberry it's sent using Bluetooth. Select that one, it's going to come up with a list of devices that your phone has been paired to and just scroll down to the one that you want to send the picture to which would be Motorola phone. And it is searching for the device. On the Motorola phone after I just select send to this device on the Blackberry, it's asking if I want to accept the file that the Blackberry is sending to this phone and it has two options, deny on the left hand side or grant on the right hand side. I'm going to hit grant. It is now connected to the Blackberry and it is transferring so it's going to ask me if I want to accept the file it's sending, accept or reject on the right hand side, accept is over here on the left. I'm going to select that one and this does take a little bit more time than just sending a picture through picture mail or through e-mail. It is going to take about a minute. So once the file transfer is complete, these small status bar that is at the bottom of the screen will disappear and the image that we sent to this phone will be displayed right there and if you hit options, you can either send it in a message from there, zoom in, apply as a screen saver, so on and so forth. The other types of files that you can send through Bluetooth would be music files, pictures and sometimes videos however videos would be more complicated as well as music because the files are so large. There's really no benefit to sending files through Bluetooth, it's usually better to just send it through a text message, send it through an e-mail or a picture message if you want to send a picture. So Bluetooth file transfer is just pretty complicated and it's pretty much just available in case if you don't have service on your phone and you don't access to the features that the network offers.
