How to get a2dp with iPhone

I have an iPhone 3g and a jawbone bluetooth headset and both work great. I understand that the iPhone isn't a2dp compatible but have heard that it is possible to both hear music and take phone calls if you use a transmitter such as the Sony adaptor (or transmitter) that plugs directly into the bottom of the iPhone.  Does anyone have any experience with this?

The new iPhone OS 3.0 is compatible with A2DP, actually. I'd try it out.

Not possible, the sound from the iphone transmits only though the 3mm Headphone adapter at the top of the phone not though the charger plug.

Best solution is to wait for iPhone OS 3.0. It is rumored to have a2dp support.

Any chance anyone can tell me if the Plantronics Explorer 390 will work with the audio on my iPhone 4? It works fine with calls and the like just not with anything else like games, music or podcasts....


The Explorer 390 headset does not support audio for games, music, or podcast. You will need to upgrade your Bluetooth to a model with A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) like the M20 or VoyagerPro+. Plantronics Bluetooth Headsets link included below. Note: Not all Bluetooth's listed on this link come with A2DP, check the product sheets on each headset. Here is the link to the Plantronics Bluetooth headsets.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

My plantronics 330 is paired to my iPhone 4. It works fine with the phone, but with no other applications. I want to hear the mapquest voice directions on my iPhone through the ear piece but it doesn't...


If you would like for your Bluetooth headset to stream music or any other audio applications to your phone, the Bluetooth profile in both devices must support Advanced Audio Distribution (A2DP) for audio streaming. Unfortunately the Explorer 330 does not support this newer technology. I would suggest updating your headset to a newer model but remember your phone must also support A2DP. The Plantronics Voyager Pro+, Voyager Pro HD & the M1100 Bluetooth profiles support A2DP. I will include a link for Bluetooth headsets below.

Iphone and headset


Is this the first time you're pairing iPhone and jawbone or it's been working before?
If this is the first time,
1. Go to settings-general-bluetooth and turn on the bluetooth on your iPhone 2. Press and hold the button above the LED light until the LED light flashes Red and White 3. Go to your iPhone and click on Jawbone and it should connect.
If it's been working before:
1. Make sure Jawbone is fully charged. 2. Press and hold the button below the LED until white light blinks 3. Go to iPhone make sure bluetooth is on press Jawbone to connect
If this procedure fails try the to follow the First Time Pairing Instruction

Hope this works for you.

Pairing headset


you need to have the manual for hour jawbone headset and follow those instructions.  You have to put the headset in "pairing mode" and then once you do that (follow headset instructions) it's simple to just go to settings, bluetooth and tell iphone to search for the headset.  
Instead of headset issues, we're having car speaker phone issues.  I have the iphone paired with a motorola bluetooth car speaker, and it works when you are making calls.  However when a call comes in, the speaker doesn't pick up, the phone just rings as normal.  That's a problem as you need to be hands free in our state, and if a cop happens to see you, you're in for it
