Question about Apple iPhone 3G

1 Answer

IPhone will connect via bluetooth to my car handsfree and works fine if I want to make an outgoing call, but it sometimes drops the bluetooth connection after an incoming call... only way to re-instate the pairing is to switch of car ignition and re-start... Car handsfree is Honda HFT system. Do you of any issues similar, or [better still] resolutions... still using v.2.0 (don't want to upgrade in case I get more problems...

Instructions bluetooth sync

I'm not sure if this is your problem or not, but I've read of others having problems with pairing various Clarion car stereos to their iPhones because they ultimately failed to complete the connection via the car stereo's Menu feature. I've heard of this for the Clarion FB288RBT and for the Clarion CZ302A, for instance. Since I don't know your model number, I can only give you general info, but it might work!

The key problem seems to be that people don't know that they need to enter the car stereo's Bluetooth menu, NOT just the iPhone's Bluetooth page.

So, first set up your connection on the iPhone:

Settings > Bluetooth > On
Look for your device. Select it in the list that opens up.
Select your car stereo model number.
If you need a password, try the default password of "0000."
You should be able to tell if you got a successful pairing at this point, but you still won't be able to place a call until you enter the Menu feature on your car stereo unit.

On your stereo, to make a call, enter the Bluetooth menu:

Press the SRC button (far left hand side, perhaps?) to switch the car stereo's source to BLUETOOTH. (The SRC button is a power button, but it also toggles the audio source!)

Press the Menu button to select a way to make an outgoing call.
After pressing the Menu button, I THINK you'll be able to see various options by rotating the Volume knob at this point. To confirm any selections, you can probably press the Volume knob.

Whereas the Volume knob will rotate and press to view and confirm selections, I'm guessing (because I don't know your specific unit) that you would then use the Band button to dial your selected number, to transfer a call between Handsfree and mobile, to answer a call, or to redial a number (use a long press for this last one -- 1 second).

And then the Menu button is used to end a call or to reject an incoming call.

I hope this helps. Without knowing your model number, it's hard to be specific.

Iphone 3gs on a parrott handsfreekit can not hear incoming calls,but works alright on outgoing sometimes freezes and go to home screen,black screen, drops calls but sometimes ok apps sometimes freeze

First of all, can not guarantee that your iPhone will work with that Handsfree Bluetooth, regardless of what any of it says. The iPhone is manufactured by Apple to work on its own, it is not made to work with any of these 3rd Party products, contact that manufacture for more information.

First thing I would try is on the iPhone go into your Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings (NO YOU WILL NOT LOSE ANY DATA) Once you tap that, it will inform you that it will NOT erase any of your data, simply just resetting the settings, getting rid of any glitches. Test it out after this, if its still an issue, continue to the next step.

Best thing to do, since this mostly sounds like a software issue. Restore the iPhone using iTunes and a computer (Download iTunes here: ).
-Plug your iPhone into your computer using your USB Cable that you plug into the charger with.
-If possible, plug into the back of your computer if you're using a desktop.
-Open iTunes on your computer, make sure its fully update, a message will pop up telling you it needs to be updated. -When iTunes is open on your computer, you should see your iPhone listed in the left-hand column beneath Devices -Click on your iPhone, in the main window of iTunes you should see a Restore button half-way down the page, click that and it will ask you if you're sure.
-Agree to the terms, yes this step is going to erase all your data on your iPhone.
-iTunes does automatically create backups of your iPhone, however these can store corrupted files, and are not best used in a situation like this. -For further information on BACKING UP your data by syncing, THEN restoring your iPhone, follow this Article:

My iphone wont connect to the bluetooth in my valkwagen golf car?

As I have learned the hard way the iphone's bluetooth is only to pair with wireless bluetooth headset and car stereo. You cannot connect to any other kind of devices. Also you must have Iphone Os 3.0 or higher to stream music to your car stereo. If it still does not work then the belkin bluetooth audio receiver should solve your problen

3G bluetooth echo and voice break

This problem doesn''t deal anything with your iPhone 3G. This could be a headset issue. I have tried connecting different Bluetooth headset to my iPhone 3G and I experienced the same problem using the Bluetooth headset of my friend.

To isolate this, please try the steps below:

- Try to disconnect/reconnect the headset via Bluetooth.

- Decrease the volume of your headset while making a call.

- Try to connect the headset using different profile. (for example, you connected your hadset using the headset profile, next try to connect the headset using handsfree profile to see if you will get the same problem)..

- Try using different Bluetooth headset to see if there's a problem only with your phone or with the headset

Halfway working bluetooth

You cannot at present use iphone's Bluetooth to transfer files/link up phones/computers etc as Apple has intentionaly crippled the Bluetooth so you can only connect to some handsfree kits and headsets.. this is to force use of itunes only for file/music/apps transfer and of course to prevent copy of said files between your iphone and other phones/devices to force each person to buy apps and music (prevent theft by file sharing)
