    The Bluetooth functionality of the iPad is deliberately limited - so keyboards, audio headsets etc are supported but printers etc are not. So you can send music to, say, a Bluetooth stereo system - no problem. If you 'Google' Bluetooth 'profiles' you'll see the various Bluetooth standards - but, generally, iPhone-to-iPad or vice-versa is not possible - except in a very limited sense.

    If you want to 'stream' music from your iPhone to your iPad then, as far as I am aware, this is not possible...perhaps other Forum members have more detailed information...

    The basic iPad supports Bluetooth stereo headphones - for listening to music etc - and Bluetooth keyboards, like the one I'm typing on at the moment.

    I believe there are some third-party apps that will enable you to transfer pictures between an iPhone and an iPad, but I've not used any. As far as I'm aware too, printing to Bluetooth printers is not possible - at least, I have a Bluetooth printer and although the iPad 'sees' the printer (as, indeed, it 'sees' my Bluetooth enabled laptop) it cannot communicate with them in the way you might expect.

    I've been using bluetooth between my iPad and my iPhone in order to share the iPhones 3g connection with my wifi-only iPad using MyWi OnDemand - it's all completely automatic - if there is no wifi connection, it automatically connects to the iPhone and then back to wifi when available again. All over bluetooth. Very cool...

    Ha, at least until I get that letter from AT&T! :)

    But doesn't this app only run on an iPhone/iPad that's been jailbroken?

    Yes, it requires that both your iPhone and your iPad be jail broken (for the OnDemand feature). It's worth jail breaking just for this feature alone though!

    I upload mine to photobucket from my phone then download to my ipad from photobucket.
    I wish my ipad had a track ball like a Blackberry and my Inc. Nothing to do with the topic, just venting a little :D

    I am confused. I have a friend who has had an iPad for a year. He has a Bluetooth canon printer and prints to it without wifi.

    Yes, printing over bluetooth is possible with certain apps such as PrintCentral.
