Are there 'Bluejacking' apps for the iPhone? | Bluejacking is the sending of unsolicited messages over Bluetooth to Bluetooth-enabled devices such as mobile phones, PDAs or laptop computers, sending a vCard which typically contains a message in the name field (i.e., for bluedating or bluechat) to another bluetooth enabled device via the OBEX protocol.

Bluetooth has a very limited range, usually around 10 metres (32.8 ft) on mobile phones, but laptops can reach up to 100 metres (328 ft) with powerful (Class 1) transmitters.

I had a 'Bluejacking' app on my Nokia. When I went to the nightclub, I'd scan the bluetooth phones within range, then LET THE FUN BEGIN! I'd send a message like 'If you're pretty & single, please stand up'.

im pretty sure that in a non jailbroken state there will be nothing since apple will probably not want this type of content associated with the app store and the iDevices
