Im fed up of having to right click on the bluetooth icon then left click receive on my PC to receive files from my PDA.
Is there a way of setting it up so it just receives what ever and when ever i send without having to do the above.
Many Thanks............

Welcome to Geekzone... If you are using the Microsoft Bluetooth software then this is the way to go...

I meant this is the only way of doing a file transfer if you are using the native Windows Bluetooth software. some Bluetooth adapters come with their own software, and usually they are more sophisticated in terms of functionality.

Are you using the adapter's own software or the Microsoft Windows XP Bluetooth?

Good to hear half is done... The other half is not possible. The O2 XDA IIi uses the Microsoft Bluetooth software and if you are transferring from your PC then it will always go into the My Documents folder on the Pocket PC.

Re. image uploads - we don't have image uploads but you can host somewhere else and use img tags in the message to show the image.

I have set up the XDA2i when taking pics or recording video/sounds to store them on my storage card, Therefor it automaticaly generated a My Documents folder on it and saves everthing on to it. So i thought it would show me that as well.
Before when i was using the cradle for he XDA2i and active sync i could see everthing on it and access it.
There must be a way...............
Thanks again.

ActiveSync is a different story - your Pocket PC is seen as an external drive, so you can have access to its entire contents. This is not so with the Bluetooth software in it.

So is there a way of using active sync through Bluetooth to access my files on my XDA2i?
Instead of having to use the cradle, also what version is best?
Thanks..........
