How to Make a Bluetooth Transfer on the iPhone

All Bluetooth-capable devices share the common trait of wireless communication, but there are a variety different uses for the technology overall. One common use of Bluetooth technology is file transfer between devices. The Apple iPhone is a Bluetooth-enabled device that can be set up to transfer different types of files--like images and documents--to other devices. However, the iPhone is not prepackaged with this ability. It requires "jailbreaking" (unlocking of the device) and installation of an app called "iBluetooth."
