Hi,

interesting idea. However Major Malfunction did this ages ago (even in an automated manner where the individual does not have to respond to the text message as his software does instead) as part of the Trifinite's research on Bluetooth security. See their 22C3 presentation for more information.

The trifinite tool you mention we've now dubbed "BlueStalker"... which reminds me... must get around to publishing it... :)
