Using the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack

Once you initiate the transfer form your phone or PDA, your PC will detect the file and ask where you want it to be stored:

Use Browse to change the location if you desire. Then press Next and the file will be accepted on your PC.

Note: Your virus checker may not scan files received via Bluetooth. It is a good idea to reserve a directory for incoming files and perform a virus check on this directory before opening them.

Once the file transfer has completed, Windows will display information about the received file.

Note: This is the only way of receiving files using the Windows XP Bluetooth stack. If you make the PC permanently discoverable you will still need to initiate File Receive from the Bluetooth Icon.
