    Hi,

    I'm new to the apple world and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on transferring music files from a webOs palm pixi cell phone to an iPad.... I was able to connect them with the bluetooth. I was just wondering what to do next to transfer the files. And then if able, once the transfer is complete, will any music file play or will only music from iTunes play on my iPad?

    While you can sometimes get another phone to pair with the iPad, iOS does not support the BlueTooth file transfer protocol.

    Your best bet is to transfer the files to a computer or cloud service like DropBox, then transfer them back tot he iPad from there. Without knowing what options you have for copying files off the Palm Pixi, I can't make any good guesses on a best method.
