    I bought this headset for specifically the purpose of being able to listen to music, while being able to answer a phone call should one come. And as of yet I can only use this headset for answering phone calls... won't work with music. Is it possible to make it such that I can?

The iPhone 3G and 3GS now officially support A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) with iPhone OS 3.0 and up. That's high-quality Bluetooth audio for music including stereo. The original iPhone needs to be jailbroken to run an app called "A2DP Enabler" to support it, unofficially of course, but it still needs to be iPhone OS 3.0 or above.

iPhone OS 3.0's implementation of AVRCP (A/V Remote Control Profile) only supports Play/Pause and Stop without jailbreaking and running Music Controls (currently only working with the registered version). Apple will likely never support Next/Previous Track functions officially so that they can continue making royalties off of docking kits that interface with the dock connector, so you might as well jailbreak if you need that function. Music Controls fixes other iPhone problems too. For example, my Parrot SK4000 can't switch away from the A2DP source if it can't pause it with AVRCP, which is the case if you are listening to anything that doesn't come from the iPhone's iPod app (Internet radio, for example). It is a motorcycle headset so I am literally stuck listening to whatever is playing for the rest of the ride... no placing calls or switching to the radio or turning off to talk to another rider at a stoplight or anything.

Back to the Jabra BT8010 + iPhone though: Caller ID only works until you add the contact to your iPhone's contact list. This seems to have something to do with it only supporting numeric Caller ID (cross-references with it's internal phone book for displaying a name), though I tried making an all numeric contact and that didn't work either. ;) I don't know of any solutions for this. My other CID Profile devices work just fine with the iPhone and vice-versa.

The iPhone (along with iPhone 3G) do not support the A2DP Bluetooth profile required to stream stereo music to this (or any other) headset. As such, it will not be compatible with music playback. This may change in the future, but as of right now, no.

As for taking/placing phone calls, this headset works well with the iPhone and even supports the Caller ID functionality.

I have a Bluetooth headset VMX 100. I paired it with my iPhone, I can make phones, but I cannot listen to the music from my iPhone, or the VMX100 designed to not to listen any music. Thanks

In order to have music streamed to a bluetooth headset, it must bear A2DP (Avanced Audio Distribution Profile). You see, all stereo bluetooth headsets available on the market do support that profile. Nevertheless, the VMX100 is a monaural headset, thus bearing both HFP (Hands Free Profile) and HSP (HeadSet Profile) only, which are suitable for phone calls only.
Well, depeniding on your phone platform, you might find applications around which route all audio to a monaural bluetooth headset. However, you would, most probably, find the sound quality to be pretty poor.
Please, let me know if I can help you any further.
Regards, Carlos

After pairing with my mobile (Nokia N73) I am able the listen to music only for 10 sec

Try pairing your device to another mobile and try listening music with it.If it works, either the settings on you Nokia N73 need to be changed, either is not fully compatible with the phone.As a last resort you can reset to default the settings on your mobile.Upgrading the firmware I do not recommand doing it, even from an official site, cause it can turn be very unstable.
