    Bluetooth works fine on my MBP, because I use it to download pictures I have taken with my phone and put new music/ringtones/videos on my phone.

    But for some strange reason, my MBP can't connect to my iPod Touch. I have the 3rd generation 32 gb.

    Is bluetooth on my iPod Touch broken? It says that the iPod doesn't have the necessary tools to make a bluetooth connection.

    I never jailbroken it or did anything funny with it btw.

    do you rly want to know?
    the bluetooth on the touch is only for things like using bluetooth headphones and such. I don't believe it supports the protocols that you think it does.

    I was afraid of this:(

    So everytime I have to look for my USB cable if I want to add new music/pictures or whatever.

    Yep. It's the same deal with the iPhone too - Apple has absolutely crippled it when it comes to bluetooth when compared to other phones and handhelds.

    can some sort of jailbroken app make it possible, or is it a hardware thing?
