Bluejacking and how to bluejack !!

Bluejacking is a harmless prank played on people who have switched Bluetooth on their phones. It was "invented" by someone nicknamed ajack, hence the name bluejack.

Bluejacking is NOT the same as hacking, so wannabe hacker kids, DO NOT ask me how to blue snarf or read others' contact lists on their cell phones.

If you want that kind of information, look elsewhere. For more on how to bluejack people, read below:

Note: I lost interest in bluejacking after 2 or 3 successful tries. Its just a prank. Do NOT harass the victim or else you might find yourself in the dock. Be careful, especially in airports where the tolerance level is very low. Also don't send threatening messages. Technically you cannot be traced, but if the victim notices you behaving in a suspicious way with your mobile phone in your hand, you better run or wait to be flogged!!

Unlocking your cell phone

The best way is to mail your phone provider and ask them to send you the unlocking code. Also send your phone number, phone model and IMEA number. Unlock your phone at your own risk!

Finding your IMEA number

The IMEA number on your cell phone is a 15 digit number of the format nnnnnnnn-nnnnnn-n-nn. To find it, you have to press *#06# on your keypad. It will display your IMEA number.
