    I have an iPhone 3GS and just got the new iPad. I do cad work and have found a cad program which may help me do work while away from my office. But I want to be able to transfer files from my phone to my iPad when away from a wifi spot. If anyone can suggest a solution please let me know.

    There are several file transfer programs in the app store. One of these may be what you are looking for. iOS Bluetooth does not support the generic file transfer protocol so you have to use a specific app on both devices.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I've tried one of the free ones and it does work. But I found that it only works for certain file types and I need one for dwg files. I was hoping someone could suggest one that will work without having to just buy then try.

    There is an iOS app that lets you bluetooth transfer files between iOS devices without Wifi.
    It's called File Manager (Tap Media, LTD)

    I was looking for an iOS app to bluetooth transfer Pages files and PDFs from a non-cellular iPad 3

    to an iPhone 5. Basically, I want to write a document on my iPad, transfer it via bluetooth to my

    iPhone, and email it to my editor--all without using Wifi.
    Seems simple, but it's actually hard to find an iOS app that does it
    -Bump is cool, but it wouldn't work because it requires a Wifi or cellular connection for both devices.
    -File Manager (from TapMedia, Ltd.) will do the trick. You need to download File Manager on both

    devices, and the transfer isn't as simple as Bump, but it did work for me.

    Here's the File Manager transfer process

    On your iPad
    -Open document in Pages
    -Share document to File Manager
    -Share document via Bluetooth

    On your iPhone
    -Open File Manager
    -Go to Transfers screen, press "Receive" to download file
    -Open file in File Manager
    -Share file to Pages
    -Share file in Pages via email, convert to Word
    -Email file to recipient
