Well these are general facts about using bluetooth on your windows mobile mobile phones, most people complain that that they are able to send files and images via bluetooth but when receiving they receive errors like “Unable to Connect” or unable to send files. Most think that this error is caused due to their Windows Mobile Phones, but it isnt so (technically), Imate, HTC, Asus etc. wont make phones with bluetooth not able to receive files. The trick is basically the same for windows mobile 5 and windows mobile 6, i have taken the screenshots from windows mobile 6.1 on my Asus p320 phone, but i remember it was more or less the same on my Imate and its windows mobile 5.
These are the steps needed to setup your windows mobile device to receive photos/music/data files:
Step 1: In Settings click on Bluetooth, select the mode tab and switch on bluetooth and make this device visible to other devices.
Step 2: In Settings , click on Beam and check receive all incoming beams.
After you complete these 2 steps all of your bluetooth incoming beams should reach your mobile phone and you should be able to share photos, files and music with your friends and receive it from them.
But another problem, all incoming files are stored in my documents, how do you ensure that these are stored in storage card ? Answer to that next week
