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.

The reason the iPhone won't pair with many cars is that the phone doesn't support rSAP (remote-SIM-Access-Profile). There is a Cydia app called RSAPserver (requires a jailbroken iPhone) that will install an alternate Bluetooth stack that works. There is a 10 day trial and the commercial version costs about $20, but that is still cheaper than replacing a phone or car.

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.

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...


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.

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.

IPhone bluetooth disease!!!


Bluetooth on the iphone only recognises other iphones or bluetooth devices such as the handsfree in your car. It will not find other mobile phones with bluetooth. Another scam for apple to get everyone to buy their fones I assume.

Bluetooth problems


Hi tapper24,

unfortunatly the iphone can only provide mono audio for bluetooth headsets. This is currently the limitation of the iphones bluetooth capabilities.

I hope i helped you with an answer. Sorry i couldn't do more to help, but there is no current way around these hardware restrictions.

Nathan.

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 ;)
