I wanted to make a post concerning a rumor that is floating around a few messageboards today. Someone started a thread on the official Nintendo forums stating that the Wii can pick up photos from your cell phone via Bluetooth. The thread states that all you have to do is put an SD card in your Wii, turn on the Bluetooth on your phone, and then check the Photo Channel. Low and behold your phone’s pictures will be there.
This is 100% not true. Bluetooth devices have to be paired with one another to get them to see each other. On top of that, there would be no reason that an SD card would have to be inserted to get this to work. To further prove that it doesn’t work, I even tried it multiple times just to give a first-hand confirmation that this isn’t true.
That’s one rumor taken care of. Why do people make up things like this?!
