    Unless you're talking about sending files to multiple devices at the same time, then no. Only way is to pair up with a device one at a time, correct me if I'm wrong anyone.

    It would be more of a security to be able to transfer devices without pairing, especially the way I understand how you have to set up both devices for transfer.

    You wouldn't want anyone to send you unwanted/explicit files to your phone while your bluetooth is turned on w/o your consent or acknowledgement.

    You can always remove the pairing afterwards or change it to not authorized so it asks you for the pass key each time. Now if you leave your bluetooth on and visible to everyone, pairing is going to be the least of your worries in the future. There was a BT virus that ran rampant on Symbian Series phones a year or so back. It automatically transmitted itself to another Symbian phone without either user's knowledge. In most cases, the only way to remove it was to wipe the phone completely and start fresh. It used BT to sniff out for other phones nearby.
