    I'm considering getting an iPod Touch (3G) and have questions regarding it's Bluetooth capability.
    1) Will it be able to pair with my cell phone (a Sony Ericsson 760i)? I'd like to be able to transfer pictures from it to the I-pod.
    2) Can the I-pod be controlled remotely via Bluetooth?
    3) Does the iPod Touch just have a dumbed down BT that only allows wireless headphones, like some cell phones?

    Thanks for any replies.

    Will jailbreaking fix this? If so, what are the pros and cons of jailbreaking?

    at the moment jailbreaking won't fix this but there's a possibility that one day there WILL be a fix for that (for firmware 2.x and iPhone 2G/3G there is iBluetooth 1.8 out for this issue) but no one knows how long that will take to release.

    And another point: at the moment this iBluetooth fix is most likely targeted at the 2G ipod touches and iphone 2G/3G on firmware 3.x so - if you can wait approx. 5-6months or even longer, then there might be bluetooth for the 3G ipod touch

    but again: everything is speculation and no one can give exact release times

    Thanks for the quick replies. This is not a deal-breaker for me, but it's nice to know there may be some hope out there regarding BT.
