Both iPhone 5 and iPad 2 are 'on' for Bluetooth but cannot find each other.  Any thoughts? 

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1

    Unless you're trying to Tether, they won't find/pair with each other. File transfer, by Bluetooth, has never been supported on any iPhone.


    There are some apps in the app store that permit this, but both iPhone & iPad need to be running the app.

    Hi friend,


    As we know, iphones and/or iPads cannot be paired.


    If you want to share something by bluetooth you need to search for a good app that you will be able to pair by bluetooth (and follow the instructions).


    I haven't tried it before, but Blueme is the most voted in Apple Store. For me, is useless to share information by bluetooth, it is a mess to share...


    I am sharing pr\hotos by chat apps. Music and ringtones I just download them from internet and sync with iTunes.
