Is there a way to connect the bluetooth device to the arduino and allow it to receive data from a blackberry curve? I know nothing about blue tooth but am not terrible at C.

What do i need and has anyone done this before and wrote about it?

Thanks

Well, there's duct tape. A check of google reveals that there is not "the bluetooth device". Rather, there are about a bazillion bluetooth devices. Which one do you want to connect to the Arduino? Which Arduino do you want to connect it to?


Si

A popular approach to Bluettoth on the Arduino is to get a Bluesmirf module, and connect it up like this:

Its a lot cheaper than an ArduinoBT.

I also got a BT module not attached to a base board for about $10 off eBay to work ok. Although soldering to the tiny connectors was tricky. But you can also find BT modules already on a base board with level conversion (like the Bluesmirf) on eBay.
