 Hi,
is it possible to connect the Android phone to PC via bluetooth or
wifi?

I want the same functionality that USB cable gives me, but wireless.
Is that possible?

Thanks.

 Yeah, use swiFTP ( http://code.google.com/p/swiftp/ ). Available on the
market.

Connecting to PC using bluetooth or wifi?

 swiFTP does't help much unless you can open a connection.

Connecting to a PC via bluetooth with API 1.5 / Cupcake: no, not
possible. Via WiFi, yes *provided* you go through a WiFi access point.
API 1.5 does not support ad-hoc WiFi networking which would let the
device talk directly to a PC.  Android is pretty poor on this right
now, but the good news is that it's only a firmware (not hardware)
limitation which I really hope will be resolved soon (in Donut?)

Regarding the bluetooth: it may be possible to exchange data with a PC
if the PC assumes an audio profile and you exchange data masquarading
as an audio stream (either directly bit-for-bit, or modulating the
audio with a software modem). I don't know enough about bluetooth
profiles to say if this is possible. It certainly wouldn't be easy. I
assume the bluetooth API will be considerably enhanced real soon, so
best wait I think.

Works like a charm for me!

I do go through the access point. You mentioned that

Can you please elaborate? How can I do it? swiFTP gives me FTP server.
What does Cupcake out of the box give me?

Thanks.

2. Question about registerReceiver

(1)
IntentFilter filter = new IntentFilter(ACTION_A);
activity.registerReceiver(mReceiver, filter);
filter.addAction(ACTION_B);

(2)
IntentFilter filter = new IntentFilter(ACTION_A);
filter.addAction(ACTION_B);
activity.registerReceiver(mReceiver, filter);

Do (1) and (2) have the same effect? Is ACTION_B really registered in
(1)?

I only find an abstract interface for registerReceiver in Android
Source Code. So I do not know the detailed register strategy.

Thanks for your help.
