toothing (Bluetoothing)

Toothing (sometimes called Bluetoothing) is the practice of contacting strangers via a Bluetooth wireless connection to flirt. People using Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones and PDAs can send messages, including pictures, to any other user within a 10-meter or so range; making this type of connection a form of bluejacking. Because such communications don't involve the carrier, they are free of charge, which may contribute to their appeal.
