Default Android, iphone and Bluetooth .....

I bought my wife an iPhone to replace her EVO and iPod touch. Now when I try to connect my MoPho to her iPhone, Via Bluetooth, the iPhone says my MoPho is not supported. I thought Bluetooth worked with any Bluetooth enabled device? Not a big deal really, just seems silly.

It should work that way, but it doesn't. It's better than it was, but there are still a ton of devvices that arent compatable with each other. Trying to connect 2 phones together in order to share files usually requires some additional software like Bluetooth File Transfer I don't know if this will work with iDevices or if there's some other solution that does.

Thanks! I just figured that Bluetooth is Bluetooth ...... no matter the device. I can send pics to my Iconia tab and my friend who has an LG phone as well, with no issues. The receiving device usually asks if it's "OK"to accept the incoming file.
