    Make sure that Bluetooth is turned on.
    We will see the word "ON" in the switch at the top, with a green section. Then, make sure the phone is paired with a device. We can tap on "Scan for devices" if we need to scan. Here we can see a device under "PAIRED DEVICES". We are currently connected to "ORB". Find and send the file to send from the device to the phone. We're going to send a photo.

    Depending on the file, it will ask us what application to open it with.
    Since this is a photo, it's recommending "Gallery". If it was a document, it would ask us to open it with a different application. We'll tap on "JUST ONCE" for Gallery.
