    OBEX file transfer on android

    anyone know if theres an app that allows the droid to send pictures via bluetooth to those kiosks at the drug store? when i tried it shows the computer as headphones not a printer. or does android just not support OBEX file transfer? a friend has a google phone and cant do it either.

    Angry It's not Android, It's the MFG or the Carrier

    The operating system (Windows Mobile, BB, Android, etc.) is not what will limit you on Bluetooth connectivity and support. You did not say which android phone you have or who your carrier is. But I would put $ on it is Verizon that is blocking your phones Bluetooth’s features. All of VZWs Android phones say this on their product details page "supports Bluetooth Profiles for wireless headsets, hands–free accessories, stereo and phonebook access. It does not support all object exchange (OBEX) profiles." Call your carrier and tell them you want to be able to connect to your Bluetooth printer and your phone won't let you, and then tell them you’re going to send it back since they crippled it. Drop VZW and go with a provider that won't cripple your device then charge you more money.

    Nonsense. VZW hasn't restricted the Droid in any way. They certainly were notorious for crippling phones back in the day though.

    OP -- get the Bluetooth File Transfer app.

    Seconded. "Bluetooth File Transfer" should let you send/receive OBEX no problem.
    Cool CM Tricks
    custom_backup_list.txt - make a list of files in /system that will survive a nightly install (ringtones, notifications, system apps, wallpapers, whatever)
    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)

    Verizon Wireless has crippled the Droid from Motorola

    Yes, I can guarentee you that Verizon Wireless has crippled some of the hardware features from Motorola for the Driod. OBEX Bluetooth support being one of them. I sent mine back.

    And yes, VZW still does disable certain hardware features on their devices and still charges more money for their services.

    IMHO, drop VZW like a bad habit.

    That's interesting since I've transferred files from my Motorola Droid to my Laptop over bluetooth. I guess Verizon forgot to disable it on my Droid??

    No...Verizon is not doing anything to the Droids which is a nice change compared to how they crippled all their past phones.

    Seconded... "Bluetooth File Transfer" does it all. There are cases where PC bluetooth drivers can be lacking though. In Win7 the native drivers do the job, but in WinXP I still have the good old Widcomm stack which ensures I can use all the features.

    Tip: You can use BT File transfer to install apps... just put APK files in your bluetooth exchange folder on the PC, and when you transfer them to the phone, they will install!
