    Correct me if I'm wrong,
    but is it right that the iPhone has no file transfer via Bluetooth?
    I just read somewhere that it didn't.

    Hmm

    Is this true across the board? Have there been any hacks to allow Bluetooth file transfer between phones/computers?

    nope, no hacks whatsoever
    it requires apple to write new drivers

    reason afaik: improve security

    is it impossible for someone else to write new drivers and throw them in somehow?

    Not impossible.
    I'm pretty sure some people have figured out tethering through BT (or maybe just WiFi?).
    It'd have to be jailbroken though.

    BT is dissabled so they can charge you for mobile me. Greedy bastards.

    What a minute. NO BLUETOOTH? What about Bluetooth headsets? The one I just order (Plantronics Discovery 925) claims it works with the iPhone. If the iPhone has no Bluetooth capability how does this Bluetooth headset work with it?

    the iPhone has Bluetooth for headsets, it just doesn't support file transferring over Bluetooth

    Nope. No Bluetooth hacks through jailbreaking.

    Bluetooth on the iPhone is restricted to just using for calls. So headsets work.

    But stereo headsets and file transfer do not.
