So Verizon's excuse for not making it possible to use the built-in Bluetooth on their new Motorola V710 cameraphone to transfer files over to or sync with a PC? That it's a "fraud prevention" tactic to keep hackers from Bluejacking your phone. We're sure they're telling the truth and that it has nothing to do with making money off of subscribers by charging them extra to email photos rather than just copy them directly to a PC.
