Bluetooth & IMEI

Medium Priority

Hi.
If I send a bluetooth file ( or any other content ) from one mobile to another, does it also send the IMEI of the sender mobile ?
In general, I need to know if there is something that can identify the sender on any content received by Bluetooth.

Hi,

Bluetooth devices have their own device hadware addresses or IDs (like MAC address of a Network Adapter) so I am not aware of them sending the IMEI.

So: are this hardware addresses or IDs transmitted during sending contents over bluetooth?
if so, this means that the sender can be identified!!
