    So I've been trying to connect to my wifes iphone via bluetooth here for an hour or so and I'm pretty frustrated.

    I've never used bluetooth before so this is a new thing for me. I turn both bluetooths on...they see each other...I pair them...but all it says is "device paired but not connected"

    Am I missing something here???? Please help!!! I'm totally blaming it on her Iphone because I am convinced that my droid is pretty much the best thing in the world! :motdroidhoriz:

    I get the same thing when I try to pair my Droid with my Mac (Apple Products). I've read people can do it but I sure couldn't.

    What do you want the phones to do once you connect them? The two phones need to have an ability (called a profile) in common between them before they can do anything together.

    Sadly it 'is' your Droid... for some reason Motorola decided (rumor says on behalf of VZW) to leave out the BT sharing functions that enable BT devices (other than headsets) to communicate with each other (i.e. no file-sharing).... There are a few apps around but I haven't used any personally as I don't need the function for my uses. But still.... would be nice had Moto/VZW not dropped the ball on this one...

    I took some pics of her finishing a marathon the other day. She wanted the pics for her phone to show her friends. I know I can email them and such but we were just trying the bluetooth things just for the poop and giggles so to speak.

    Hell...honestly I don't know anything about bluetooth.

    Get Bluetooth File Transfer from the market for free. Then open it, pair the devices, find the pictures under Local files, press menu "upload file" and then it should be on your wifes phone

    Absolutely not true... I have sent contacts between my 2 phones (Blackberry and Droid) via bluetooth, and I am pretty sure that I have sent a file in the past too.

    Edit: this without any additional programs.
