Send Message Rather Than File

Thu Jan 29, 2009 4:28 pm

Hey,

Ok this looks like a great little libary, however we have put together and app to send a file to a phone from a PC but, we would like to send an SMS message via bluetooth is this possible without pairing? Similar to what cinemas and certain public places do. (When you walk into the area they bluetooth sms you a message)

Any help appriciated.

Thanks

Pino

SMS is most likly the wrong terminoligy. However we wish to just send a text message rather than an image.

No, you cannot do this without pairing, and the example you gave is probably not done by bluetooth (since it would require all users to register for it). More likely the cinema can pick up if you are close to their GSM/3G transmitter.

Thanks for the reply Jonas,

It seems it is possible to send a message via blutooth as all the phones we have looked at support the feature. if we can send a file to the phone surley there will be a way to send over some text?


Appriciate the reply

You can send over a file since almost all phones have the Obex service implemented, but there are rarely (ever?) a service that is listening for incoming text.

What phone have you found that support incoming text?
