    Okay, I'm gonna try this one more time. - nobody helped me with my other post :(

    I cant receive files from my blackberry pearl to my macbook


    Whenever I try sending a file to my macbook, my phone says "Failed to find service". Then when I click the bluetooth icon on top of the screen (macbook), there's a "Browse Device" option, I tried that... it just keeps browsing my phone... never stops! :eek:

    oh yeah, i CAN receive files from my macbook to my BB pearl... it just wont work with the other way around.... WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

    I also have a blackberry pearl and I have given up trying to get the two to connect via bluetooth. I have searched far and wide and I can't get it to work. I recommend that you use the USB connector and use PocketMac sync manager to sync your blackberry, if that's what you're trying to achieve. :)

    nice to hear it's just not me... although my friend borrowed my bb pearl one time in class and she transferred a song from my pearl to her macbook through bluetooth.).. it worked!

    i found a site showing how to do it, but as i said, my macbook just keep browsing my phone.... is that your case too?
