Sending and Receiving Information Using Bluetooth

You can use Bluetooth to transfer information between your device and another Bluetooth-enabled device
such as a phone or notebook computer. The first time you transfer information between your device and
another device, you need to enter or confirm a security passcode. After that, your device and the other
device are paired, and you will not need to exchange passcodes to transfer information in the future.

Sending Information From Your Device to Another Device

You can send the following types of information, depending on the device you are sending to:

Images and videos

Calendar events


Audio files

The location where the information is saved depends on the type of information and the receiving device:

If you send a calendar event or contact, it is normally added directly to the corresponding application
on the receiving device. For example, if you send a calendar event to a compatible phone, the event is
shown in that phone’s calendar application.

If you send another file type to a Windows computer, it is normally saved in the Bluetooth Exchange
folder within your personal document folders.

On Windows XP, the path may be: C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\

My Documents\Bluetooth Exchange.

On Windows Vista, the path may be: C:\Users\[your username]\Documents.

If you send a file to another device, the saved location may depend on the file type. For example, if you
send an image file to another wireless phone, it may be saved in a folder named “Images.”
