    Bluetooth on the ipad is a bit crap, it only gives you very limited functionality.

    Bluetooth in general promised great things, and then failed to deliver - I'd suggest because it really isn't very secure, to the point of being quite scary - and i'm usually fairly cynical about security scares!. Only really useful thing I use it for is for phone headsets and apparently Bluetooth stereo headsets are pretty good.

    With the right bits of fairly easy to acquire software, you can go to a public area with a laptop and suck almost every bit of data from dozens of cellphones an hour with their Bluetooth turned on...

    yeah, I figured its crap on the iPad being that Apple doesnt really want anybody transferring info wirelessly, i guess becuz of security reasons, which I can understand, better to be safe then sorry..

    anyway, I installed iTunes, and got a lil further in that my ipad and my puter have successfully paired.. altough it says driver not supported when I tried to transfer a pic from laptop to ipad..

    oh well..

    I use my iPad bluetooth with an Apple (silver) keyboard, bluetooth headphones and my Spracht Aura BluNote speaker system. It works great, I wouldn't be without it.

    I would really like to connect my BT GPS to my iPad WiFi but no luck. The BT services supported by iPad seem to be quite limited, I assume by design.
