Motorola e815 OBEX Bluetooth

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 14 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

First things first, I got a new phone a couple weeks ago. I didn’t blog about it because my computer was down and, well you get the point. In any event, I am now the owner of a very spiffy Motorola e815.

Now, one of the reasons I wanted to get the e815 was that it had Bluetooth. I knew that by default it would only support a Bluetooth headset, but I also knew that I could hack my phone. Well, I finally got around to that tonight. Matt Matteson was kind enough to lend me his Motorola USB connection cable and after about an hour of fussing around, I was able to modify the required seem. Another 30 minutes and I was able to transfer pictures, sounds, and videos.

    I’m about to get an e815 after researching it quite a bit and joning Yahoo’s e815 group.

    I understand that modifying seems could cause a warranty problem. Were you concerned, or did you backup the seem in case you had to restore it?

    I understand that in extreme failures, a POWERED USB cable could help with a reset and restore.

    Have you heard of other ways to get Bluetooth OBEX without seem changes?

    One of the guys on the e815 group does a lot of his transfers using the TF card and has not changed seems yet.

    Please email, as I won’t be logging on here for a while.

    Thanks,

  2. I understand that modifying seems could cause a warranty problem. Were you concerned, or did you backup the seem in case you had to restore it?
    In theory, you are violating your warranty. However, it’s been a while since I have looked at the contract and I really have no idea. What really matters is what will the Verizon Rep at the Verizon Store do about it and the answer to that one is pretty simple: nothing. Let’s just say that they aren’t the brightest bulbs in the box. So, if you do screw it up, just bring it in and play dumb. However, I did backup my seem data first.

    That is my understanding as well, however I have not actually tried it.

    Have you heard of other ways to get Bluetooth OBEX without seem changes?
    No. And from a technical standpoint, there is no other way to get Bluetooth OBEX unless Verizon does an on-air network reprogram…which they won’t.
