    Just found out what bluejacking is.
    Maybe I'm just a bit slow and this has come up already (for which I do
    apologise), but for those who haven't heard of this yet check out
    www.bluejackq.com
    I'm currently using a 7210 (which I'm sooooooooo bored of already). Anyway,
    charged up my previous phone (T68i, which I miss sooooo much) and bluejacked
    some people in a shopping mall here in South Africa. Just love the
    expression on their faces :-) Quite amazed at how many people have bluetooth
    turned on - especially Nokias! Does anyone know if Nokia has bluetooth
    turned on by default or have these people just turned it on accidentally?
    TIA.

    Couldn't it be becaule they actually are using the BT feature, and not just
    playing with it, for a hands free for example?

    Thanx Marka2K. Thought Nokias might have it on by default. Just making sure.

    Re: Bluejacking

    Don't think it's due to people using bluetooth devices here in South Africa.
    Not many people here know what it is.

    No, if that was the case they would have it ON but not visible ie only
    devices you have paired your phone with in the past are visible and
    useable. This is how I run my Z600 (I use BT for handsfree and syncing
    with my PC)

    These people fall squarley into the NFI what the hell BT is camp

    Re: Bluejacking

    I don't think that Nokias or any brand has bluetooth on by default. One
    major reason for that is the increased current consumption i.e. battery goes
    dead faster, so it has to be user's choice to do that.

    One way to try to solve whether somebody has default BT settings or not, is
    to look at the bluetooth name of the devices you find when doing device
    discovery. If there is something like Nokia7650 it's possible that user has
    default settings, but if the bluetooth name is something like joes-c-phone,
    you might think that at least somebody at some point has touched phone's BT
    settings.

    And if you are asking something related to Nokia phones, maybe you could ask
    from alt.cellular.nokia also? I would guess that the probability of getting
    more reliable Nokia related info would be higher...

    Cheers

    Maybe in South Africa, but not in the US. I've never found another
    bluetooth device scanning in restaurants or other crowded places.
    The only other bluetooth devices I've found belonged to a cow-orker
    of mine who set them to discoverable so I could test bluetooth.

    All (except one) of the phones I found showed the phones name so more than
    likely they haven't played with their bluetooth setting.
