Passkey for Bluetooth?
My Bluetooth worked fine with my other Macbook. That Macbook was recently replaced, however, with anew one. All files were backed up w Time Machine and are now in the new machine. I just tried to send a photo from my Blackberry via Bluetooth, and they couldn't find each other. Both discoverable. I then went on my Blackberry to set up Bluetooth, and it found the macbook and I got all excited. Then it asked for the dreaded "numeric passkey." Um. Whut? I have no passkey. I have "I have no passkey" checked in my computer's Bluetooth.
Any ideas of how to make these two labor-saving automagical tools cooperate? Before defenestration occurs?

Usually sending files through BT with a Mac (to/from a phone) is better done with the BT send file command from whatever device, as opposed to connecting to the device and navigating through the files. At least, I always had more success that way with the BT phones I have used with a Mac.
CLEAN INSTALL - Format your hard drive, install your operating system of choice, install applications, and manually copy over personal data. For a good, clean feeling that lasts.
