Hi!  The bluetooth feature on the iPhone is currently limited by Apple to the headset profile and will only function with bluetooth headsets. File transfers, object push (which are the BT profiles exploited by bluejacking) are not activated.
It is not visible to other devices so you dont have to worry. :-)

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.

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.
