Is the crippled nature of the iPhone bluetooth hardware or software?
software - the bt stack supports all profiles (about 25?) but the bt is crippled in the software
Thats good i guess because if someone or apple want to enable it in what ever way, then it is possible.
Unfortunately, it would have to be Apple who fixes it, third-party developers don't have access to anything that low-level. And Apple obviously doesn't want to, otherwise they would have sometime in the last year.
it is the software that cripples the Bluetooth in the iPhone.
I just hope Apple will surprise us with better bluetooth, MMS etc... in the 2.0 frimware update.
it is generally the operators (T-Mo, o2, vodaphone, at&T) who insist on the BT crippling - I expect would be happy to open up the stack.
Sad but true
Remember the $99 a year mobileme.com subscription service --- Apple won't open up the stack.
Ha. Sad, but a big lie. AT&T's other smartphones have full stacks.
And dont make a mistake buying and iPhone hoping for an update. You should buy the iPhone for what it is now.
1. Operators DO cripple BT stacks (I'm sure AT&T have not on some phones but not all. There are many operators and many do cripple the BT for any number of reasons [££££££££])
2. YES - buy for what the iPhone offers now - there is no guarantee will open the kimono on anything!
I dont see how bluetooth would challenge mobileme? you can do most anything else over the usb anyway..
well, if everyone asks apple, then we might get it if there is a high demand, however, if hackers are able to unlock the iphones then surely they will be able to figure out a way of hacking the BT stacks.
