Got myself an iphone 3gs, liking it in alot of ways but having trouble with the bluetooth.. I have been told that it only connects to other iphones? surely not? if so is there any way of making it abit more sociable? it is 'jailbroken' if that helps. Any advice out there?

hey mate yea its not very good with the old bluetooth, it will connect but you cannot send anything. There is a few things you can get to transfer pictures via bluetooth from iphone to another but i downloaded that and it kept crashing on startup. just search bluetooth in cydia , could be different for you :-D no chance of transfering songs, well you can but it changes all the names of the songs to somthing else so you have no idea which song you are chosing. Hopefully apple will sort this but i dont expect them to. hope that helps buddy

The bluetooth function is very limited, it will not send files over bluetooth by default. I'm sure that if your phone is jailbroken then somewhere there will be an application for sending files. Have a look on Cydia repository for bluetooth applications.

Object push (the bit of the bluetooth stack that sends/receive things) isn't supported.

Apple say that its to prevent people sharing music that's been paid for and is copyrighted.

Its only supported for a BT headset.

iBluetooth claims to allow file sharing across bluetooth. I haven't used it myself.
