    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.

    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.

Can't pair to iphone 3g

Hi, the iPhone 3G definitely does work with bluetooth. In fact, I'm talking on a bluetooth headset with my iPhone 3G right now.

You have to put both your Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headsetand the iPhone in "pairing mode".

On your iPhone, click the Menu button, tap the Settings icon, tap the General icon, and then tap the Bluetooth icon. Make sure that 'Bluetooth' is set to "ON" and not "OFF". As long as you have this screen up, your iPhone is in pairing mode.

Turn your Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headset off and wait a few seconds. On your Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headset, press and hold and Answer/End button for Five Seconds, until a solid blue light comes on, which places the device in Bluetooth discoverable mode.

Now that both devices are 'discoverable', the Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headset will show up on that Bluetooth screen on your iPhone. Be patient as it might take a minute to appear. Tap on the Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headsetin the list on your iPhone, and then it will ask you for a passkey. The passkey is "0000" (without the quotes). After you enter the passkey, the Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headset will show up on the list with the word "Paired" next to it.

Now you're paired! Incoming calls will automatically be passed to your headset as long as your iPhone can find it nearby.

Good luck.
