I have done this and I just wanted to ask if anyone else has and what you found interesting. I did this at a local mall in the food court where my father-in-law has a buisness, and I found a blackberry and a phone with the name of "LooseLucie". i actually was able to connet to the blackberry and since he had file sharing turned on I could see and if wanted to download his buisness files. He worked in the accounting department so it was tempting. Cell phones are fun to play with!!!! :D

OMG, I though nobody else did this!

I do this sometimes with my blackberry. I go to coffee shops with it and scan, and sometimes I find very...interesting....devices.
I lost my blackberry, though, so I cant scan any more. :cry:

I know why it is not documented well, becouse in order for it to work either you have to get the target to think you are a trusted device (like i normally do if they have a bluetooth head set) or get lucky that they have a device that has accept all request setting turned on. But it is fun to do.

Once I got a guy to freak out because I named my device "Secret Service", and was trying to connect to his bluetooth-enabled laptop, so every few seconds he would get a little pop-up message on his screen saying "Secret Service wants to connect to you!"

Heres a link I found about Bluetooth scanning: http://www.tomsguide.com/us/bluetooth-scanning-goes-mainstream,review-580.html
