    I just upgraded my PC and the new one has a Bluetooth feature. I got the PC to pair with the phone but now, at this point, I really have no idea what that's good for or how it would work.

    Any input would be great....

    unfortunately it doesnt have DLna so you cant transfer files directly to your phone, but if you get wirelesss tethering it can be dont thru bluetooth

    if you were looking to transfer files i reccomend dropbox app

    I didn't really have a task in mind. I was more wondering what I'd really use it for--if anything. I am rooted for now and running 2.2.

    I was able to transfer some songs from my pc to my droid via bluetooth.

    simple connect and then drag and drop....

    having trouble with it recently since i flashed CyanogenMod though, luckily it's not my main mp3 player

    Your better off using the USB cable, transfers will go a lot faster.

    +1 for Dropbox, but for what you are asking for, look for Bluetooth File Transfer in the Market.

    Works like a charm.

    How is Dropbox an improvement over the default process? On first pass I wasn't clear on the benefits but I did just graze them as I'm still finishing work.

    drop box is one of the most awesome inventions ever

    you drag and drop files from any computer then you can find them on your droid instantly and download them at direct download speeds

    Ah, so no need to go USB cable, mount, etc? Just drag the APK (or whatever) to this and there it is on the phone?

    Yes, pretty much. You will need a Dropbox account (it's free) and it really is one of the greatest things ever.

    However, you will need an internet connection, as it is cloud-based. This is why I also like to have Bluetooth File Transfer incase I cant get 3G or WiFi that I can use (such as my cave of an office).
