Bluesnarfing attacks are fairly dead now. They existed in old Nokia phones and only existed for so long because Nokia refused to admit that the flaw existed. There really isn't a lot of bluetooth hacking going on for various reasons, but it's not very likely you are going to find vulnerable phones being used with bluetooth enabled and stay around long enough to attack.

It could still be useful if you where to say try and gain access to a computer using its bluetooth adapter wouldn't it?

If you were able to find a vulnerability that allowed for remote code execution then maybe, however BlueZ is written fairly well. THere is no official documentation, but the code and clean and not too difficult to read.

what im actually trying to do is gain access to my bluetooth enabled cellphone using my computer. is that still possible to do with the new phones that are coming out these days? if not, where would i find a program that allows me to do it to old phones? the only tutorial ive found on this topic is one at irongeek.com (http://www.irongeek.com/i.php?page=videos/bluesnarf1) but the video really dosnt help much. any input would be greatly appreciated. thanks
