Yes, its sad, you cannot send files through iPhone bluetooth.

Wait until someone creats a app to do so.

Apple prefers to have "styled Incompatibility" so that the ir iTunes remains the only means by which your iPhone may import/export.

I really sucks that the Bluetooth is strictly for monaural telephone use. you can't even use a bluetooth stereo headset for the Ipod.

Sending files is not something that can be done on the iPhone.. i could do it with my treo.. this is the funny thing that the iPhone was compared to the treo in the keynote but i think that the treo is better [i have an iPhone and would NEVER go back] but on my treo i had Microsoft word, excel, and powerpoint. it was awesome.. i think that the iPhone should get all that .. im sure that is has the power to run it ... what is with Apple and this web app crap ... give us real apps....

but back to the real point ... sorry no file transfer is allowed by iPhone... and be warned ..not all blue tooth headsets work...

because steve jobs owns you now! Haha
hahaha...
I remember when Nextel phones came out and they owned everyone that was member in that contract...

you are stuck for 2 years and no other carrier or phone will work with Nextel iden services. You can walkie talkie all day and all night but you were stuck and owned by Nextel.

I guess it could happen when you sign any contract with any company....

Dammit, I wish I would have seen this before I bought a Bluetooth adapter for my laptop. I could care less about a headset right now, I just wanted to get my pictures off my phone. My laptop no longer recognizes my phone as a camera or removable storage, so I thought Bluetooth file transfer would have been my solution. Well this sucks, I guess this is just more of a reason to buy a Macbook, because I'm tired of my laptop not working correctly.

You should be able to grab your pics from the iPhone through iTunes on the PC, no?

But yeah, iPhone + Macbook is such a sweet combination.

I used to remove pictures from my iPhone easily enough because my laptop USED to recognize it not only with iTunes, but also as a digital camera. No longer so, most unfortunately. My laptop has just began on a decline, seeming to lose most of its functions. Hopefully I'll have a MacBook soon.

does anyone with a better understanding of the iPhone's hardware know if file transfer is possible with an app?

I just realized tonight that it isn't possible...I think this is even worse than no mms.
