    Hello people.

    Im just questioning myself that is there is an activation for bluetooth on itouch?

    I googled my question out, and some people says, that the itouch has a Bluetooth chip intergrated, but is not activated. They think that Apple may use it later on in the future for something special.

    Now does any person here knows how to activate it or something familiar with it, or new about it?

    What most people seem to think is that the "bluetooth chip" is for the Nike+ thingy and is not a secret Bluetooth to be activated at a later, secret stage.

    From what I have heard it is a full BlueTooth chip and that it is just not supported by the G2 iPod Touch. My guess is that with a modification to the OS it can work but first the G2 iPod Touch needs to be jailbroken.

    Yes 2G got BT, but iPHone OS kernel in iPod touch 2G profile don't have BT driver on, so it's invisible for software :> Besides if it's turn on it need to support right BT profiles, this includes virtual serial port to transmit custom data via BT (for file trasfering for example)

    So all depends on Apple because they got kernel source code.

    My friend has an iPhone 3G and I have a Nokia N70 and I tried to pair on bluetooth. Michael's iPhone came up, but didn't connect or anything. :|

    There is, in fact, a Bluetooth chip in the iTouch 2G. However, OS X has it disabled for regular use (as Shadowriver said, no drivers). You're gonna have to plug that sucker in.

    Apple hasn't officially announced it so it doesn't exist in the public world.
