    What are you trying to achieve by such a connection? The iPhone does not support file transfer via Bluetooth.

    Not a feature of iphone.


    Bluetooth on iphone will allow:

    Stereo music headphones/speakers/etc

    Telephone headsets and handsfree.

    Some Peer-To-Peer games/apps

    Tethering in countries where carrier provides this service. I believe that Germany is not one of those countries.

    Yes, I got the same message. Before installing windows7, I could connect via bluetooth and listen to my iphone music on my computer. Is there an iphone driver for connecting to Windows via bluetooth? (audio only)

    Stereo music headphones/speakers/etc


    My Bluetooth earpiece (like Mr. Spocks) works perfectly with the telephone, but no other audio will come through it.

    You would have to hit the website of whoever makes your Bluetooth device on your windows box. You need to update your BT driver, but Apple won't have it, the hardware maker will.

    That is because different BT devices only support certain functions (known as BT profiles). Most headsets for phone calls, do not support music. You need to get a BT headset that supports music - usually stereo and has a mic and also supports calls.
