The iPhone 4s uses the actual version of Bluetooth, which is 4.0. This version is absolutely backward compatible with older versions. If your phone does not connect to your car then you probably should not blame Apple but the car manufacturer, because it appears that this company did not implement Bluetooth properly. I for example have no problem connecting my iPhone 4s to my car (Audi).

From researching further there obviously seems a number of reasons that could cause an Iphone 4s to not bond with a cars handsfree. And sometimes its just hit and miss.
There appears a lot of missinformation and apinion out there on the apple discussion boards
My original post was drawn from frustration of having a great phone and not being able to use it in my car, when previously i had had no issues connecting my 3gs. It also appeared (on the internet) that hundreds of people were also having difficulty too, and i couldnt seem to find a simple answer from an Apple representative.
If as you say it is not an Apple issue, I will continue to work through some of the suggested options and hopefully it will get sorted.
I would have remove this discussion but not sure how!

Hopefully it will work for you.

Here too. It was great until I did the update and now my phone no longer connects to my car or my headphones or even my computers. And yes I tried to re-pair them. Thanks for the update it's the best one yet!
