View Full Version : Blackberry Bluetooth help...

25th August 2008, 04:02 PM
Hey guys\gals,

Is\has anyone successfully connected a Blackberry 8130 to Fedora 9 via bluetooth? I'm using a dell d600 and some generic bluetooth adaptor. The bluetooth works fine, the phone connects to the laptop fine, however when I click on "Browse Device" I receive an error that says "Couldnt Display "obex://[phone hardware address]/" Error: Host Down...please select another viewer and try again.

Anyone seen this? All I really want to do is transfer files between my laptop and Blackberry...nothing special. I am able to use the built in "phone manager" that comes with Fedora, and it does connect to the phone. Any thoughts, advice, help would be much appreciated.

First question: Does your BlackBerry support OBEX filesystem browsing?
