    Default How can I IM with bluetooth?

    Is there a program out there that my friend and I can instant message each other with bluetooth?

    We have the same laptops, both built in with bluetooth.

    We sit about 5-6 feet away, so we're within bluetooth range.

    We tried using this Valhalla program, but for some reason we couldn't find each other even though our laptops were literally next to each other.

    Doesn't bluetooth create a network just like wifi? Simply with less range and reduced bandwidth. So in theory you could use any software that would work over a LAN. If your laptops have bluetooth then surely they must both have Wifi, why not use that?

    I'm trying to find a Bluetooth Chat program.

    I don't think AIM works over bluetooth.

    If you sit 5-6ft away from each other, why don't you just talk to him/her? That requires very little effort - no software to install or anything.

    Because we have to be silent when our professors/teachers give us lectures. It gets boring sometimes, so we just want to type to talk.

    EDIT: Right now the system we use is just bluetoothing a .txt file from notepad back and forth and chat like that.
