v195 Java games from Mac over bluetooth..


Aug 2, 2006, 9:48 AM
I'm having an odd issue and am wondering if anyone else has seen this yet..

On MacOSX 10.4.7, using Bluetooth File Exchange, I've successfully been able to send pictures (wallpaper and icons) and audio files (ringtones) to the phone. However, when trying to send Java games (.jar files) I'm getting a strange error message:
"The last operation failed: bad request"

This worked easy as pie on my T610, so I'm wondering what's causing the issue -- whether it's on my end, or if it's crippled somehow by Motorola or T-Mobile?

Ok, I'll answer my own question, in case fellow Mac users run into the same problem..

To send games to the phone, you can't use the drag-and-drop interface. However, if you close the file exchange and choose "Send File" from the Bluetooth menu (icon in the menubar) you'll be prompted to save and install the file on your phone.

Thanks to vacumatic over in the Razr V3 forum who got me thinking on the right track.

This was my last and final issue - I'm now 100% happy with this phone. (=

BTW: for any Mac users wanting to Sync with iSync before Apple gets around to updating it, read here:

Just a note of thanks for the message on file transfer and the link to a working iSync profile. My v195 should be showing up in the next few days and you probably saved me several hours on google 🙂

😁 Hey Thanks for the iSync tip! I had used another one but it really hosed up everything by reversing the first and last names 😲
