    I have a phone (enV Touch) that can send pictures to a computer via bluetooth. I do this with it all the time on my Mac mini. For whatever reason, I can't get the phone to sync to my iPad. Both device--phone and iPad--recognized one another, but they can't establish a connection.

    Does this have something to do with the "locked" nature of the iPad, or is there another factor I'm unaware of? The bluetooth on the iPad seems to work fine otherwise, as I've synced my Apple keyboard to it and typed out a few sentences with no problem.

    Apple don't allow this, so unless you jailbreak you won't have a hope in hell.

    Yeap if you are going to have any chance of doing this then you will need an iPhone. I did have a thought you might be able to use an app like this, but Im not how sure how well it will work on the iPad. Of course that is no use to you :p
