How do I send files via Bluetooth

Hi,

After having my Vario for a couple of months now, for the first time I have been asked to bluetooth a couple of files to someone. However, when I went into the file manager there did not appear to be an option to send via bluetooth. I couldn't find anything else on the device that would do the same.

I find it incredible that they would still not provide this functionality. Made me look a tit after still trying to convince people of how good these Windows based smartphones are.

Anyway, is there really no way, as standard, to send files over BT?

If there is, then how?

If not, then what is available in order for me to do this?

I do have a copy of Smart Explorer which I used on my SPV E200. Is this compatible with WM5? Or is there a WM5 version?

Many thanks in anticipation.

Smart Explorer 2.1.4 works fine on WM5.

Sniper also can send and receive files over BT.

1. Turn on bluetooth in comms manager

2. Browse to the file you want to send in file explorer

3. Tap and hold, select 'beam file' and the device will also search Bluetooth devices

Simple really

Doh!

Cheers mandt. A bit misleading methinks. It says "beam" which made me automatically think IR. Then when it opened it just said IR and searching is greyed out. So I didn't even give it a chance.

That'll teach me.

Sniper sounds goood though. You can send multiple files with it?!

Yeah, Sniper has browser function, first select directory, then select files to send.

I use it on WM5 smartphone edition (HTC tornado), so version for Wizard may differ a bit.

P.S. Smart Explorer also allow to send multiple selected files.
