    Looked through the forums for this topic, but no dice. My question:

    I'd like to transfer pictures from my CDMA phone (on Sprint; LG Rumor2) via bluetooth to my ipod touch 3rd gen. I've gotten them to recognize each other, but they don't seem to hold connection. The iPod especially fails to connect. I've gotten to the point of the passkey and each device identifying the other, but that's where it ends.

    Anyone have any success with this, LG or otherwise?

    The iPod touch bluetooth only works for headphones. There's no profile for anything else. Even if there was one, there's no user visible file system on the iPod Touch.

    You would need to jailbreak and use iBluetooth and iBlueNova for bluetooth file transfer, other than that your only other option at the moment is to email the images to yourself and save them to your touch through the mail app.

    Where can I find a list of cellphone compatibility with iBlueNova? I have a LG Cosmos on Verizon.

    The blurb for the iTouch iOS4 upgrade blurb indicates that bluetooth functionality has been extended to include keyboards. Unfortunately, I have tested this on a 2gen itouch using two non apple keyboards that worked with an ipad, but they did not "discover" although there was indication that a dialog had transpired.

    Very disappointing... anyone know anything more about what the ios4 brings to the BT table and if the 2gen is even included?

    fwiw, I _was_ able to pair BT stereo headsets to the 2gen under os3 but it appears that the upgrade to 4 may have disabled even that option.

    The bluetooth in the ipod touch 3g really sucks, even when updated to iOS4. My ipod can find my windows 7 laptop alright but it refuses totally to connect with it.

    This KB clarifies the fact that it's not an option on 2g touches plus shows that the current 8gig touch is not a 3g touch.
