Currently Being ModeratedJul 25, 2010 11:11 PM (in response to Qutaiba)The iphone does not have the bluetooth profiles to connect to a macbook or an ipad. The only profiles that it has are for headsets, headphones and new for the iphone 4 a bluetooth keyboard. So the short answer is that you are not doing anything wrong, the phone just doesn't support those functions...

Because your PC is not a Mac?
No; seriously. The PC may be broadcasting a compatible signal and the Mac wont be I guess...
Nothing to wwory about.
Tethering works differently doesn't it? PC connects to iPhone not the the other way round...?
Currently Being ModeratedJul 26, 2010 6:51 AM (in response to Qutaiba)All Apple iDevices (and some BT cellulars too), exclude the ability to sync on wireless remote from connecting audio or WiFi/BT iTunes/ActiveSync data transfer. You can only add a _BT headset_ or _BT keyboard_ as long as they are not in use by another console (MacBook, iPad, iPhone, etc).
iPhone can connect to the MacBook via _iOS4 Bluetooth/USB Tethering_ after you visit your Carrier account management and signup for tethering. It can not be used iPad to iPhone. This is excluded from iDevice to iDevice tethering.Dell Studio Slim / Mac Mini 4GB Model, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhone 4 w/MobileMe
