    We have tried.
    pairing the iphone first (with the Nokie off ) then turning off the iphone and pairing the Nokia.

    we started it off clean with both phones non paired.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    but me thinks i did not make my self clear...

    I am talking about multipoint bluetooth headsets... this allows a person to use two ( 2 ) cell phone with one ( 1 ) bluetooth.
    you are on your iphone ( personal use ) and your boss calls you on your work cell... all you have to do is say good bye to your friend hang up and like magic you hear your wonderful kind boss on the same bluetooth.......

    Unfortunately I cant seem to do this with the iphone.... any other cell phone works just fine.... 

    and YES, Bajanguru your solution works with any bluetooth.  the problem is you have to go thru all the steps to turn off the other cell phone off ( or other steps ), by this time your wonderful kind boss is very upset becouse he now is listening to your voice mail.....

    But thank you very much for your time and help.....

I actually have both products, and I was able to get my bluetooth to work with 2 phones. All you have to do is first pair your phone with the H721. Then in the phones functions, turn off the bluetooth so it is no longer in discovery or connected...but do not turn off the bluetooth itself, just in the phones settings. Then go to the bluetooth settings in the iphone. you should see the H721 in discovery but not connected. Before connecting it you must put the H721 into discovery mode as well. Hold all three buttons down for 19 sec. it will go solid blue. then push connect on your iphone. onces connected, go to the original phone and turn the setting back on for bluetooth connection. both are now connected. Only one may apear to be connected, but both are. test it with another phone. call each number and you will see that you can now answer both calls with one device. If the iphone is connected and phone 1 rings...the H721 disconnects temporarily from the iphone and connects to the other device to answer it. Hope this helps. Cause thats how I got mine to work.

Well what you will have to do is when pairing with the BT for the Iphone you will have to take the BT off on the nokia for this to work properly.

My bluetooth will not work

Hi. For you to be able to use the bluetooth. Make sure that it is turned on. Go to Settings > General > Bluetooth > it should be ON.

And if I may ask, what are you trying to connect/transfer with the bluetooth connection? Because from what I know, iPhones can only connect from another iPhone device. It doesn't work with any other devices.

Hope this helps. Have a great day!

I'm trying to pair a motorola bluetooth device with my iPhone 3G with no luck and from what I've read, this is a problem. Help would be appreciated.

Motorola aren't made to pair with the iPhone, its most likely just down to software difference, so its not a problem with the Motorola device or the iPhone, they just aren't compatible, if you visit the Apple website it will have lists of bluetooth devices, not all Apple, that work with the iPhone.

When i try to turn on the bluetooth function on my 3gs it remains in the search mode- (the circle of death) forever and doesnt pair with my motorola H710! Help!!

it wont pair whatever you do. even if you install a photoshare app on your iphone, it still wont be able to transfer files to and from your iphone. the iphone's bluetooth only works with other iphones/ipod touch.

Iphone 3G speakerphone and headset volume is too low

Whilst on a call in bluetooth mode change the volume. It needs to be for each different "speaker" you use

Wont find bluetooth

What do you mean by won't find bluetooth? some bluetooth headset doesn't work with iPhone make sure your headset support iPhone ! or iPhone support that headset. If you have iPhone 3G try to use iBluetooth (download free on Cydia) to send and receive files with other phone brands. Good luck n hope this help ;)

I want to use my iphone 3g bluetooth in every situation

You can't send and receive files with the iPhone's bluetooth. Version 3 of their firmware will supposedly provide this functionality, but only on the iPhone 3G. (2G models don't have the necessary hardware)

As for the hands-free car setup, that should work just fine. It's a matter of pairing the two devices together.
