Following an over the air update of my iPhone 4S to v5.0.1 bluetooth will no longer connect to my Nuvi 350, Jabra Halo, or Jawbone.  Bad news.  I suppose I can send any ticket I get for not using a hands free while driving to Apple for prompt remuneration.

    Are you asking a question here, or just being annoyingly sarcastic?

    I'm having the same issue with my Mazda 3 right now with both iPhone 4 and 4S on iOS 5.0.1.

    Can detect any hands-free devices that were previously paired.

    I have too issues trying to pair my iPhone 4S to my TomTom Car Kit, since iOS 5.0.1 update. The phone is charging, but not recognized as docked by the TomTom Car Kit, so no bluetooth and no additionnal GPS chipset.

    Worked perfectly before, in iOS 5.0 (except from echo in conversations).

    Tried yesterday with my brother's iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1. Same issue.

    Perfectly worked before with my old 3GS.

    I cannot pair my iPhone 4 (Keynote Remote app) with my iPad2 (Keynote app) using Bluetooth with iOS 5.01 installed on both devices. I had to lug my laptop to set up a wi-fi network in order to control the Keynote preso with my iPhone. Any acknowledgement of the problem and an expected fix?

    Hello, got same problem.

     

    When i dock my iPhone 4s to the car kit, impossible to see the Bluetooth device and connect to it anyways.

     

    Help or update required.

    Having the same problem. Can't pair my iPhone 4S with my IPad 2 or my iMac 27". The phone doesn't see either and nor does the iPad see the phone. I tried disabling location services and Siri on the phone as others on the forum have suggested but to no avail. Deffinitely think there's an issue with the BT stack in iOS 5, I hope Apple patch it soon. Am pretty disappointed.

    Why are you trying to pair your iPhone 4s with your iPad 2 or iMac? What are you attempting to do?

    I play FIFA on my iPad and there's the possibility to play 2 player using a couple of iPhones as game pads. You link them to the iPad with Bluetooth. I was also trying to dump contacts into my iPhone using Bluetooth from my old Samsung Galaxy S as some were on the phone and others on my google account. In either case, since it's an Apple product, it should 'just work', unfortunately it doesn't.

    I've been having problems connecting with all my bluetooth devices as well. In the best case, the connection is not near as stable anymore - i.e. it may connect for a period of time, but easily disconnects for no apparent reason. This is across our cars, portable speakers and portable Bluetooth handsfree device. On both our cars - Audi Q7 and Volvo XC70 - previously iPhone would connect to bluetooth flawlessly, now both connect only momentarily and then drop - connect and drop - with no apparent reason for either when it connects or when it drops - or how long or short it will stay connected. I have removed and re-instituted devices, re-paired, same results over the past several weeks. Until this week, when now the iPhone will not pair with the Audi system at all and I get a error message that says the device isn't supported. Who needs to do an update here - Apple or Audi? Any known way to fix this?

    I also have a problem where my iPhone (5.0.1) starts Bluetooth but just searches endlessly. It never lists any devices.  I'm unable to attach to my headset (where I was before) which is a pain.

     

    O2 have said it's a faulty phone (how they can diagnose this over the phone I don't know) but I'm not so sure it is.  It seems that lots of peolpe have experienced this; so it would seem it's an Iphone / IOS 5.x problem.

     

    Can Apple confirm this / give an indication of when this will be fixed ?

    Have you confirmed that the device you're trying to connect to is in pairing mode?
