IPhone 3G bluetooth problem

I can't get my iPhone 3G to detect other bluetooth devices. Some devices detect it, but are unable to pair with the Iphone 3G. This iPhone 3G bluetooth problem is another one in a chain of iPhone 3G problems, i'm starting to regret i bought it. Nelson. Bluetooth headset seems to have crashed my Iphone My IPhone seems to have gone "**** up" since I paired it with my Bluetooth (Sony Ericsson). After about 30 mins no one can call me (they say phone is off) & every call I make it just says "call ended" or Failed. Anyone else have this prob or is my phone faulty? if it IS faulty, then this will be the SECOND Iphone I will have taken back in ONE MONTH!!! I too am regretting every bloody upgrading to this **** phone :-(((

Technicians say that Apple has made the Bluetooth facility available in iPhone NOT for transfer of data, but it is a facility for call conversations and music-hearing without sticking to the iPhone. So, iPhones, Ipods won't detect the bluetooth connected to each other or to any other phone. However, I understand there's one third party software (Bluetooth Photo Share or Bluetooth IM) to be installed in iPhone or iPod for transfer of data. -- M.S.Ramakrishna

If you bought your phone from Apple then it can't be faulty. Don't worry about that. iPhone use different bluetooth technology so not all bluetooth headset support it. Why don't you try to go to a Apple store and ask them let you try a iPhone supported bluetooth headset? then you'll know if it's the headset problem or iPhone problem right ? good luck n hope this help.

The iPhone 3G is unable to connect with other devices because of audio fraud with iTunes (I think) But it can connect with headsets.  If the headset has seemed to crash the iPhone, a restore might be in order, which sounds like it.  I have had a similar problem with my iPhone.  Go into iTunes, and restore the software.  Then try to re-connect.  If all fails, might be your headset, se try using a friends phone to connect.

The iPhone unfortunately does not pair with just any device, it would be best to check compatibility before purchasing a new peripheral for your iPhone.

I would try doing a clean restore of the device, also, if you're using any type of unlock, you will lose them in this process (which may not be a bad thing, sometimes nasty things happen with unlocks and such).

If it sticks around even after this, then I'd look into possibly a hardware issue or defect.

Good luck.

Unable to connect to other bluetooth devices


Do you have bluetooth turned on and allow pairing?

Apple suggests this: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1838
Also many older and "cheaper" bluetooth devices do not work with iPhone. Check out this article: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13544_3-9740876-35.html
Hope it helps!

Most Bluetooth devices can connect only to one device. Make sure that it is not paired with any other device. Then again, if that doesn't work then, probably the Bluetooth device is non-compatible.

Apple ifone bluetooth


you have to make sure that bluetooth is turned on.

go to your home screen, touch settings, then general, then bluetooth, make sure the bluetooth switch is set to on.

Then follow your directions for the your headset for pairing, usually it involves holding the power button down for so many seconds, then it will enter a "pairing" mode where the headset is able to be seen by phones.

Once that happens it should pop up on the bluetooth page of the iPhone and it will ask for the devices password. Most devices the default password is 1111.

Hope this helps and enjoy your Iphone, I know I do ;)
