Today I will show you how to connect your Blackberry Playbook to your Blackberry phone using Blackberry Bridge. Blackberry bridge allows you to connect to your smartphone over Bluetooth to gain access to your email, calenders, Blackberry Messenger and so forth when you dont have wifi.
For the purpose of this tutorial I will be using a Blackberry Bold 9780 and a Blackberry Playbook on OS 126.96.36.1998.
Ok the first thing we need to do is turn on Bluetooth on both devices. You will also need to download the Blackberry Bridge App for your smartphone which is available from Blackberry App World.
On your Playbook go to Settings – Bluetooth and click on Add New Device. Once your smartphone has been found add it.
Now on the Playbook go to Settings – Blackberry Bridge and you should see your smartphone visible on the screen. We need to click on Set-up.
On the following page you will be asked to set a name for your Playbook. Enter a name and then click Next.
You will now be told that you need to install Blackberry Bridge on your phone but as we have already done this just press Continue.
Open up Blackberry Bridge on your phone click Continue and then point your phone at the barcode which is visible on the Playbook. Both devices should then authenticate over Bluetooth and volia your devices will now be connected.
