    Hi again!

    Bluetooth on an iPad can be used for headphones or keyboards. You won't be able to connect it to a computer, sorry.
    May I ask: what did you intend to do when connected to the computer? Perhaps we can help you get this done without Bluetooth.

    Hi JA,the idea was to move photos from PC to ipad and vice versa without going through iTunes,as you may gather I am very new to the iOS system.ive always had Android before and never had a problem connecting to a PC via Bluetooth.i still have an android mobile phone(Samsung Galaxy S3)and was rather hoping that I could pair that with my ipad via Bluetooth but it seems that's not possible either,it just a bit of a bore having to connect to my PC every time I want to transfer any pics or vids.also I find that you can't delete any photos transferred to my ipad thru iTunes without going through the PC and iTunes .Is my only answer getting an iPhone or are there any ways around it? sorry if I sound a bit vague but as mentioned before I am real a complete novice.thanks for being a big help I appreciate it.

    You can pair your Samsung Galaxy with your iPad. You can't use it to send files/pictures/music, though.

    As you already noticed, you also can't delete pictures you synced to your iPad through iTunes.
    You could use cloud storage, like Dropbox, Google Drive, Skydrive, Box, ... to sync between devices. Save the files... there, and you can open it on the other devices as well. There's also Evernote, which syncs between Windows and Apple as well. I wouldn't use it for pictures, though.
    Another option would be to use software on your computer to sync iPad and computer. There are several different kinds of these available for Windows and Mac. Just search for them and choose the one that fits your needs.

    Once again JA thanks,whilst I'm on another question,I have only been able to transfer photos via iTunes that are in a folder on my PC is there a way I can transfer them individually rather than a complete folder?

    Sorry, I can't help you there. I don't use iTunes. Hopefully someone else will be able to tell you if it's possible, and what to do.

    Check out the app called FileBrowser. It's great because it lets you connect to any shared folders on your computers without having to have a helper app also installed on the computer. It does two-way transfers and also has media player and photo viewer. I use it often to browse the photos on my home server and copy what I want to my iPad. And it also connects to dropbox and many other cloud storage accounts so you can unify them in one place. It's $5, but I sure have gotten my money's worth out of it.
