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.

YES, it can now work if you have 3.0+ update.

NO. It's not compatible. I just bought one today.

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.
