When you bluejack, does the
victim's phone/PDA just show that there is an incoming contact or
does it get accepted by the phone or PDA and entered into the address
On most models the phone will bleep
the same tone as when a text message is received, and it will show
a message similar to "name of contact has just been received
by Bluetooth". If the user then accepts it, the contact will
appear in their phonebook. From here the user can see what is written
in the other fields too.
I want to know how to send a business card, if at all possible,
from a SE T610.
A simple answer would be that a business card is the same
as a phone book contact, so yes, you can send them from a T610 because
it has Bluetooth. You can follow the same guide that I have written
for sending contacts.
Whenever I try and bluejack someone it asks for a passkey. What
am I doing wrong?
Ah. You are trying to pair your phone to another Bluetooth
device. This is not what you want to do and won't work. Instead
of going into 'My devices' in your Bluetooth menu, select the contact/item
you want to send and choose 'Send' then 'Bluetooth'.
Is bluejacking free?
Yes. It's free because it uses technology on your phone
not your simcard. Since your network only has control on network-provided
features, and Bluetooth is a feature on your phone not provided
by your network, it is free.
Will my phone number be sent
out with anything I send when I bluejack somebody?
No. As I said earlier, Bluetooth is a feature on your phone
and has nothing to do with your network and therefore nothing to
do with your phone number.
How do I stop people from bluejacking me?
You can either go into your Bluetooth menu and switch it
off, or if you need Bluetooth on for one reason or another you can
simply set your phone to 'Undiscoverable' in your Bluetooth menu.
This means that other Bluetooth devices won't find you when they
search for Bluetooth devices.
Can someone hack my phone and
steal my phonebook contacts?
What you are describing is a form of 'bluesnarfing'. Please read
