I want to connect my cell phone to my iMac through bluetooth in order to transfer the photos I took on the phone to my iPad. Is this possible? I've established a connection through bluetooth but I can't do anything with it. If this isn't possible on the iPad is it doable on the iMac? I'm using an aqueous/sharp handset.

    Can't be done via Bluetooth. You can use iPad with a Bluetooth keyboard for wireless typing, or Bluetooth headphones for wireless listening.

    Import the photos from your phone to your iMac's iPhoto or Image Capture. Then use iTunes to sync them to your iPad. Or email them from your phone to your iPad.

    No. I've heard of apps that will allow you to transfer files via BT to a computer. Don't know how well the work as I've never used any.
