You cannot because this phone will not recognize any other phone with bluetooth. It will only recognize headsets.

You cannot pair this phone with any other phone through bluetooth because it only pairs with headsets. The only thing you can do is to send it in a text message or have them send it to you.

Dude, you cant bluetooth shit, the camera is 0.3 megapxls, you cant email yourself songs, you cant link up bluetooth with anyone else ever, there is no memory stick input so youre limited to the internal memory, which also makes it so you cant put any pictures, numbers, ringtones, audio, anything on there unless you download it and spend money. I came from having a NOKIA 6555 that was 2 years old and you could do pretty much anything with it to this and i feel like i cant do shit, all i wanna do is listen to wat ever song i want to listen to when someone calls without spending money.

Yeah you cant Bluetooth, or email mp3 files. BUT this is a pretty good business phone for a cheap price. You can also set recorded sound as a ringtone too.

This phone is cute, but that's about it. Bluetooth doesn't work, terrible camera quality, and trying to text with the keyboard is horrible. I try to type a word and it won't put all the letters I typed, so I have to go back and add the letter. I wouldn't recommend.

The Samsung SGH-A177 is simply worthless. Everything said above is absolutely true. Mine is worst though, each time I try to get into any specific area, it skips. I'd have to try several times to do the simple things with this phone. Never again will I buy a Samsung.
