    Re: BLUETOOTH SOLUTIONS

    I followed the instruction to the letter about installing .jar files/games
    to my V500 on Orange using BTooth, It never works, i can transfer audio &
    jpgs no problem but games, no. Ive been told i need a USB to unlock the Java
    settings before i can do anything, is this true do ou know?
    Any help would be fine.
    PS. i also have a V600 & its exactly the same on this.

    Re: BLUETOOTH SOLUTIONS

    My understanding is that the v500, v600 and v3 are virtually identical
    in this regard so it should work as configured (maybe someone here can
    confirm that?). I simply drag and drop the .jar file (NOT .jad files!)
    onto the OBEX Object PUSH icon and the download starts. There are two
    icons - the OBEX Object PUSH and the OBEX File Transfer. Be sure to
    drop the .jar file onto the PUSH icon and NOT the Transfer icon (which
    WILL work for audio and pictures). Is that what you're doing? What
    happens? Any error messages?

    You do not need a cable. I've added my solution to BruceR's excellent guide:

    Hope this works for you.

    NB: I too have a V500 on Orange.

    One other thought. On the menu bar in My BT Places click Bluetooth:Local
    Services and make sure that PIM Transfer and File Transfer say "Not
    Required" under the security setting. You can right click the item to
    change it. Also do this under the Client Apps tab.

    Greetings,

    I have a couple of questions regarding this process to move games to the
    phone. First I was able to download some Java games from a Motorola specific
    site. The files came down as file.jar.zip. Using WinZip I was able to
    examine the files and they appear to have multiple files contained inside.
    My first question is do I simply rename these files to file.jar? If not how
    do I turn a zip file of java stuff into a jar file?

    Second, I experimented with changing the name of the file to file.jar and
    was able to transfer it to the phone per the guide mentioned above, however
    I cannot see any way to actually use this file. It doesn't appear in the
    games menu (oh I have a V551 by the way) and when looking at the files
    installed on the phone I only see pics, audio and video files. Any ideas on
    where the file is? How would I access this file or at least delete it
    assuming it's not a valid .jar file?

    Thanks for the help
    Cheers
    TC

    Re: BLUETOOTH SOLUTIONS

    Sounds like it's not a valid .jar file since you just renamed something
    else. Here's what you need to do:
    First, a .ZIP file is a compressed collection of files that's used to
    shorten dowload times by making them smaller. You need to UNZip the
    files to actually use them. WinXP has zip extraction built in or you can
    use any of the many ZIP programs available for free. WINZip is popular
    and a search for "free zip" will take you to a bunch of program sites.
    Once you've extracted the files, you can drag and drop the .jar file
    ONLY (forget about the others) to the OBEX Object Push icon. The file
    will upload to the phone. The phone will ask you to accept the file and
    you'll accept it. After the file transfer is complete, the file will
    either install itself or ask if you'd like it to install. You'll accept
    that and the file will install the game and then appear under "Games" in
    your phone's menu. Find the game and run it.
    Note that not all games will run on all phones. You might find an error
    message during the file transfer which usually means it's not a valid
    ..jar file or it's too big. You could get an error during the
    installation process which means it won't install on your phone or,
    lastly, when you run the game you could see an application error. If you
    get that last one just delete the game and go on to find something else.

    Thanks Bruce. I wasn't sure but I suspected that simply renaming the file
    wouldn't work. One note, the zip file did not have an actual .JAR file
    inside it. I will have to go back to the site and see how they intend for
    you to use the files.

    Cheers

    If you tell me the URL for the site I'll take a look and see what it is.

    The site is http://www.motomodders.net/

    They have some free Java downloads (you'll have to do a free registration to
    get to the download section). When I download them Windows defaults to a Zip
    file file type which is why I had the first problem. I figured out how to
    download them as JAR files but they don't seem to work on the V551. It's
    entirely possible that these java programs are not compatible with the V551,
    there is no information on the site as to what phones they work with.

    Thanks again for the assistance. At least I am able to pass the files to the
    phone via Bluetooth.

    Cheers
    TC
