    Does anyone know how hard it would be to push a message to any Blue enabled phone saying words to the effect
    "This is a 'king theatre; turn your phone off NOW!"
    I know that some won't be BT enabled, and some will require passwords... But it could be fun to try!

    Any pointers to legal methods would be welcome.

    I once got bluetooth'd by an exhibition stand "Visit stand V34 and claim your free t-shirt" or some such. Thought that was quite clever.

    Pretty easy. Make a contact saying that (or close as), scan for devices, send contact to device. Shouldn't need passcode as you aren't doing anything other than sharing info.
    My old P900 had a great program for doing this automatically, scan and send a message to all devices. Was great fun. Can't find a similar app for Mobile device Am the cry.

    There used to be alot of adverts that would send you bluetooth messages. The sort that you have on the sides of bus shelters. However, IIRC there's now some sort of 'law' thats been passed thats made it so that the user has to do something before they get the message, rather than just walking past it. i.e. they have to consent to recieve a message or something like that

    I regularly 'audit' bluetooth devices nearby. I a laptop running Linux plus a cheap 10 bluetooth USB dongle to do this. While there are many tools to do this kind of thing on Linux I use 'BlueScanner' and 'BlueDiving' plus 'BTcrack' for the 'audtiing'.

    please don't take this the wrong way... but why do you audit bluetooth devices?
