Hi,

I'm not sure if this is possible but i'd like to use my M600i as a keyboard on my Playstation 3 via Bluetooth. Basically just for sending quick text messages.

Can someone please let me know if it's possible to make a mobile phone work this way either with software emulation or another way?

Am I right in thinking that a Bluetooth keyboard HID profile would have to be installed on the mobile?

Sorry, but I have absolutely no experience with Bluetooth.

Thanks in advance,
Stitch

Welcome to Geekzone... Sorry, you can't do this. First you would need to have Bluetooth HID support on your PS3, and second a Bluetooth HID client support on your M600i. Since those conditions can't be satistifed you are out of luck on this one...

Hi,

Thanks for the welcome and fast reply - even though it wasn't what I wanted to hear.

I must admit I know absolutely nothing about Bluetooth. I just knew that you can pair a BT keyboard with the PS3.

I thought it might be possible to trick the PS3 and find my mobile phone when searching for a BT keyboard. Then use the mobile for sending keystrokes to the PS3.

Anyway, thanks for clarifying.

Stitch.
