    Thanks, I think that this helped me also. I hadn't been able to get my bluetooth to work all day. I was about to reset the phone. Thanks for posting the fix.

    Had the same issue, and tried this work-around but no love from my iPhone. My nice headset is currently a useless lump, and the iPhone basically ignores all attempts to re-enable Bluetooth functionality. Help us Apple!

    I have a slightly different problem with Apple bluetooth and Motorola headsets. They paired just fine. I can hear people just fine. It is just the other person on the other line cannot hear me clearly. My voice is extremely low in volume and my voice cuts in and out.

    This happens on both headsets. My 3G phone is fine. It is the firmware. I sent Apple a bug report but don't know if they really read everything that comes in.

    Thanks so much Gunter! I was rebooting my iphone thinking that would help (it did last time) but it didn't. I just did what you suggested and switched on airplane mode, then turned on blue tooth and voila! Thanks for the great tip - saved me a call to Apple support!

    After a restore on my iphone, mine did the same thing, it wouldn't see any blutooth devices. In my car I have a hands free system that talks to you, so all i did was turn bluetooth off on the iphone, then i ran the phone setup on my hands free system, when it said ready for pairing, i then turned on the bluetooth on the phone and it finally saw the hands free system and I was able to pair it. So try turning off bluetooth, then do the pairing function on your device, then turn bluetooth back on on the phone and see if sees the device now and pairs.

    I got mine to work with a slight variation of the work around. After turning bluetooth on in airplane mode I had to back out one step into "general" then I went back to bluetooth and turned it on. Only then did it work.

    I had the same problem on my Original iPhone after updating to iPhone software 2.2.1. This fix resolved it for me.

    Thank you!

    Tried all your suggestions - still nothing. Is a total restore my next step??
