    Hi Venu,

    Yes it is possible to establish a Bluetooth Connection between a PC and a phone as long as your PC Bluetooth Adapter is compatible with Bluecove (i.e. with the Mac OS X, WIDCOMM, BlueSoleil and Microsoft Bluetooth stacks). In Windows, check the Device Manager to see the type of your Bluetooth adapter.

    You will first need to download the BlueCove library from here:


    create a JavaSE application that runs on your PC and listens for incoming BT connections.
    Then you need to create a client for your mobile that searches for devices and services. As soon as a service is found on the PC running the JavaSE application, a connection can be made.

    A way to start would be to modify the existing client-server Bluetooth example found here:
    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...ces_in_Java_ME (client)
    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...ice_in_Java_ME (server)

    so that the server runs on your PC (built with JavaSE). Instead of sending a message from the client to the server, you can modify the example so that the server reads a file from the computer and sends it to the client.
    For file related operations on your phone, you will need to take a look at the FileConnection API found here:


    For file related operations on your PC, look at this example:
