Review: Samsung A900
You can put jpegs on the phone
However, the A900 does have trouble transferring pictures between other phones. I have received a picture from a Nokia N90 and Samsung T809, via Bluetooth....but what happens is: The image gets stuck in the vCard folder, on the phone. I had to plug in the USB Cable, view Hidden Folders, and grab the image out of the vCard folder (within the Bluetooth Folder).
Pocket PC Phones are the only phones that can receive pics from the A900 (in my experience).
sending or receiving pictures via bluetooth totally failed even when trying to transfer between paired devices. (and pairing was not exactly easy. our A900 would only pair with another device from the home screen. not even from the bluetooth options menu.)
this is supposedly the most current driver from samsung, and addresses this issue. (as the samsung rep tells me)
BTW, what computer are you connecting it to (OS version, brand, etc)?
To be fair, though, I have only tried it with a few Motorola handsets - a ROKR, a SLVR, and a RAZR. I can transfer files between the three fine, but the Samsungs want nothing to do with the Motos.
and for the record, i'm using a mac with tiger, and the mac's bluetooth file exchange app (which does not have drivers for any phone, it only works if the phone supports standard protocols).
i've talked to windows users who have had the same experience as me both with bluetooth and usb file transfer, however, so i did not feel i was in error reporting that weakness.
