Apple doesn’t provide any native feature to send and receive docs, images, video music over the Bluetooth to and from an another iDevice (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch etc.), despite the fact that Bluetooth is supported as a hardware feature. On the other hand many users coming from the Nokia & Sony Ericson world are accustomed to using the Bluetooth to share their files with other mobile phone users or with a PC. File sharing via Bluetooth is a feature that you can find in many mobile phones these days that are not even smartphones! I think this is sign of clear limitation that Apple should address in the upcoming iOS 5.0 release.
Anyway, if you are tired of waiting for the Apple to add such a functionality to the iOS based devices then there is Cydia application called “Celeste” that is making the rounds around the Net. This is an application that allows to send and receive any file such docs, audio, video, image etc. over the Bluetooth with any other iDevice such as iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch or a PC/Mac etc. with minimal hassle. And impressive thing is that it is very well integrated in to iOS. Only requirement is of course you have to have jailbroken iDevice to download & use it. Celeste is available for $9.99 via the ModMyi repo. Please note that it seems the application currently only supports iOS 4.2.1. So, make note of it before shelling out your hard earned money on it!
