    iOS 7 is introducing a feature called AirDrop which allows iPhones to wirelessly share anything (not just files, but notes, contacts etc) between iOS devices. Mac also have a feature called AirDrop, though at present the two aren't compatible. I'm hoping Apple will open up wireless file transfer using AirDrop in Mavericks, though this is unlikely to come to Windows. That's just the way it is.

    Are you trying to get files off your device, or to it? iTunes File Sharing works pretty well, and can be configured to be completely wireless. It's virtually the same thing as using Bluetooth, except it uses Wi-Fi instead.

    there's a certain app that lets you share file through bluetooth, freely, and not just limited to iOS devices. But i guess there's a sum you need to pay.

      This REQUIRES Jail-breaking :)

      Another +1 for android phones. So many hassles with iPhone. You have to jailbreak just to share files with other phones via bluetooth.

    just search the app store, for "bluetooth", there are many apps that allow transfering of files via bluetooth. One such app is |bluetooth file share from Phoenix Mobile, which is also free

    unfortunately, no. Iphones do not yet support Bluetooth File Transfer. Keep hope, though!!
