Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
My iphone will not detect other bluetooth devices or allow any others to send to it
This is not strictly true - my iPhone connects wonderfully to my Plantronics Voyager 520 headset. It will not connect to other phones, headphones, etc. via bluetooth. It is intentionally crippled and will only connect to a headset via bluetooth.
My guess is that Apple sells songs and doesn't want you trading them around to your friends via bluetooth. Whatever the reason, it's quite annoying.

Yeah i read somewhere i think it was on apple's forum that the iphone is only capable of detecting apple products' bluetooth...What a pain!
Hopefully they will uprgrade this..and stop the ringtones issue

You can only use iPhone bluetooth to connect to a headphone but not for any thing else. You can't transfer pictures and files from or to the iPhone using bluetooth. this is very stupid, the interface is there, yet you can't use it properly, i think i am selling my iPhone.

SOURCE: bluetooth problems iphone
bluetooth on iphone is crippled somewhat.. you cannot for example connect to another phone or a computer like you can with other bluetooth enabled phones.. The bluetooth on iphone can only be used to connect to headset/sat-nav hands free kits etc at the moment.. maybe in a future upgrade they will relax this.
