    Transferring files using Bluetooth

    Hi All,

    Is it possible to transfer files from PC to Mobile(BT faciliated Mobile) vice versa without using Bluetooth Dongles/adapter?

    Is it possible through Programming?

    Is any programming needed, While using Bluetooth adapter?

    Re: Transferring files using Bluetooth

    if u want to send file b/w two devices they should ve bluetooth enabled.
    A pc may ve bluetooth usb adapter or some other bluetooth device.
    And every bluetooth device has some profiles(services) like file transfer,obex(object exchange) etc..
    so u need not write any code for sending the files.the manufacturers ll provide those with driver.
