Have you tried the "blue tooth file transfer" app? It's in the market.

I've had problems with this as well.

I've tried it without any extra app, just the btooth on the phone and it won't work. I have the FTP Server checked to be on and after I've paired with a mate's phone, I try to send a file and it complains that the OBS protocol or whatever is not enabled on the receiver's phone.

I have had luck using the app from the market, "Bluetooth File Transfer" (green/orange icon) but again, I often get the same OBS or OBT protocol error.

very annoying - I just want to grab a file and btooth it to a friend's phone. It really shouldn't be so difficult.

I do have EXACTLY the same problem! I tried it today with 4 different phones (motorola, 2 siemens and nokia)! If someone wants to send me a file via bluetooth it works like a charm but when i tried to send something to another phone it doesn't work.

Is this some kind of a software bug in Desire's ROM or what the hell is going on here?

Beside of this the phone is freakin fast compared to my old Polaris

Default Explorer by Speedy Software

Hi,

I've just tried it with 'Explorer app' by Speedy Software which is in app market. It works flawlessly. Sent a 'apk' app to my Nokia E71 just to test and it works.
