Bluetooth wasn?t given to iOS users when Apple?s operating system came into being. However, jailbreaking brought many tweaks related to Bluetooth functionality and finished the missing piece of puzzle to the iDevices. iBluetooth Call is a jailbreak tweak that allows users to connect to other jailbroken iDevices through Bluetooth for starting local voice chats that are passed between the wireless technology.
Though there aren?t real benefits as the range can only go to a certain extent, the idea is a decent one. For its effectiveness, there should be more people in a particular group with jailbroken iDevices and the installed tweak to invoke a chat session by connecting their devices through the tweak. The requirements include a device with Bluetooth capabilities and a built-in microphone.
iBluetooth Call is compatible with iOS 3.0+, so a device on this or above this iOS firmware along with a built-in microphone/ a wired headset with a microphone can take advantage of this tweak. It also offers a possibility to users of iPod Touch 2G to install the tweak and join the voice conversation.
The developer states the tweak could be a nice thing to use in a small party or with friends. You can even call your brother in the other room without knocking on his door! However, due to real-world limitations of Bluetooth, I don?t expect this tweak to be a massive hit. Nevertheless, it can come handy in certain situations.
You can get iBluetooth Call Cydia tweak from the BigBoss repository (one of the top working Cydia sources) for free and it is compatible with IOS 3.0+. The devices should be Bluetooth enabled and have an attached compatible headset or a built-in microphone to make use of the tweak. The current version is 1.3.
