that are within range start to appear on the display one by one. You can see a device

is shown first. To start a new search, select

4 Scroll to the device you want to connect with and press


. The item you are

sending is copied to Outbox and the note


is shown.

5 Pairing (if not required by the other device, go to step 6.)

If the other device requires pairing before data can be transmitted, a tone sounds and

you are asked to enter a passcode.

Create your own passcode (1-16 characters long, numeric) and agree with the owner

of the other device to use the same code. This passcode is used only once and you do
not have to memorise it.

After pairing, the device is saved to the Paired devices view.

6 When the connection has been successfully established, the note

Sending data

is shown.

Copyright protections may prevent some images, ringing tones, and other content from
being copied, modified, transferred or forwarded.

Data received via Bluetooth can be found in the Inbox folder in Messaging.

See “Inbox -

receiving messages” on page 52.

Tip: Pairing means authentication. The users of the devices using Bluetooth

technology should agree together what the passcode is, and use the same passcode
for both devices in order to pair them. Devices that do not have a user interface have
a preset passcode.
