    I'm having problems getting my Sprint Hero paired with my Sprint Blackberry 9630.

    Background: Testing wireless communication between BlueTooth devices.
    I can sucessfully send/receive SMS between my HERO200 and BB9630.
    I can successfully receive MMS JPEG photos from my BB9630 to HERO200.

    My BB9630 w/3.2MP camera takes better photos than my 5.0MP HERO200
    so I wanted to link via BT and transmit photos from my BB9630 to HERO200 since BT is faster than MMS. My BB9630 has a menu option to transmit photos using BT when viewing photos.

    I activated BT on both devices. Tried to pair from either side. The BB9630 shows paired with HERO200 OK. The HERO200 shows message Paired but not connected message (Photo #1)

    Another problem, I want to start all over??? Well, I can erase/delete HERO200 from my BB9630 device but I CANNOT erase/delete the BB9630 from the HERO200. If I highlight the paired device and press Menu (Photo #2) I dont get any options to do anything. All presses of the MENU button on the HERO200 just gives me the option to Scan for devices (Photo #3)

    Anybody with method of how to erase/delete a BT device off the Hero??
    Anybody having similar issues?

    The ANDROID bluetooth stack does not have the protocols to allow file transfers via Bluetooth.

    Thank you slbailey - but even if the ANDROID bluetooth stack does not have the protocols to allow file transfers via Bluetooth shouldn't the HERO show at least a CONNECTED or PAIRED message???

    What's this "Paired but not connected" message like in the bottom of the screen capture in photo #1 mean???

    The other question I have is how does one UNPAIR/DISCONNECT or DELETE a BT device from the Hero? I can't find the menu option to do that. The Hero shows "Paired but not connected" whether BT is ON or OFF? I simply cannot rid of Blackberry off of the Hero.

    Does the Hero have a bug in its BlueTtooth options???

    I had that message in the beginning. What I think happened is that the BT device did not pair correctly or partially. What I had to do is delete the BT device and reboot the Hero and then repaired. The second time it worked. After it worked I realized that I was not prompted for the passcode the first time I tried to pair. The second time I was prompted for the passcode.

    Here's my steps the second time I tried to pair my BT device.
    1. Turn on the Hero bluetooth.
    2. Turn on my headset and make it discoverable.
    3. On the Hero, taped the Scan button.
    4. Entered the passcode of "0000" when prompted.
