Don't know GoBetwino, but when I look here: http://arduino.cc/playground/Interfacing/GoBetwino I see in the list what we can do with it: "Read a file and return data to Arduino." Aren't there any examples in the package? (I've not downloaded it). Perhaps Processing will help? http://www.processing.org, too.

If you want to automatically transmit it this is the way to go. If you want to copy it manually you could use the serial monitor. If you are satisfied to transmit it statically you could compile it into your program. Until you explain clearly what you want to achieve more specific advice is close to impossible.

Maybe the GoBetwino will fit you bill but unless you get more specific nobody can tell you.

Hi Andreas...thanks for your info. I am not using processing before so i just scare will make this become complicated...is it suitable for my case?if yes then i probably will work on this....about gobetwino...i cant find any examples through their blog...so this make me struggling....anyway thanks

Now i am just a beginner to face with whatever i am working on. These kind of stuff is strange for me...so i need some example to start...after searching the information that you provided...it is seem like less what i had found regarding to my case....so to read a txt file and send to arduino, is this necessary to use another software to do it? cant just use arduino code?

In the GoBetwino download there's a PDF file describing the sample code that also comes with the download.

In there you can see how your Arduino program can ask GoBetwino to send over a line from a text file.
