    Only suggestion about Bluetooth and Volvo I can offer is to

    be sure to run the latest updates for the Volvo equipment.


    As for bluetooth transfer between iPhones or iPhone and MBP,

    this is not a feature of iphone, iPad or iOS, never has been.

    Bluetooth is supported for stereo headsets/speakers, handsfree

    telephone devices/headsets, some keyboards,

    some peer-to-peer apps from the app store and internet tethering

    where provided by the carrier.

    Other than this it will not connect to a phone/computer/device. 

    (thanks to ckuan for the wording)

    You are correct in your understanding - there is no bluetooth

    file transfer between iPhones or iPhone and other cellphones or



    Car bluetooth is tough to diagnose. I can connect to a Nissan Rogue

    with both iPhone 4 & 5 while the car's owner cannot with his iPhone 5.

    Perhaps the Volvo fora/discussion boards might offer a clue.


    Thank you for the feedback. And hope you get the iPhone and Volvo

    to work together.
