2. Make the BlackBerry smartphones discoverable. For instructions, see the Make your BlackBerry device discoverable section of the BlackBerry User Guide.
3. Pair the BlackBerry smartphones. For instructions, see the Pair with a Bluetooth enabled device section of the BlackBerry User Guide.
4. Set the Trusted field to Yes on both BlackBerry smartphones by completing the following steps:
1. In the Bluetooth application, highlight the BlackBerry smartphone and press the Menu button.
2. Select Device Properties.
3. Set the Trusted field to Yes.
4. Press the Menu button and select Save.
5. Send and receive the transfered file.

On the recipient’s BlackBerry smartphone
