    I've upgraded my 2G iPhone to the 3.0 firmware that came out yesterday. I can no longer get sound out of my S9 headphones even though they are paired with the iPhone. Previously I was able to get mono iTunes sound (using no adapter) as long as the phone screen was constantly on and I was in the phone's Voice Mail screen with "Audio" selected and the S9 device. (could also receive calls). Sound would, however, also come out of the phone's speaker at the same time. Now I get nothing doing the same procedure and the two devices paired.

    I just purchased the S9 HD - same problem. You can't use it to go forward or back. Very annoying while running not being able to skip a song. Also, the S9 HD kicks out a lot while outdoors. Sound quality is great indoors, though.

    That's the thing I was looking forward to 3.0 but after getting it yesterday I found that I wasn't able to play music as well as take calls simultaneously*. A little disappointed that it's not working right off the bat...Any suggestions?

    I'm have a 2nd Gen IPhone and the Motorola S9-HD and I'm having the exact same problem. Let me know if you find the answer and i'll do the same. I'm thinking the stereo bluetooth isn't going to work for us.

    I have successfully paired the S9 with my iPhone 3G 3.0 and everything works fine except the next/previous buttons. Previous to this I used the sony adaptor and everything worked flawlessly...unfortunately, the adaptor isn't working either since the upgrade.

    What are the chances this will get "fixed" by Apple? (or Motorola...can the firmware on the s9 be upgraded?)

    I am unsure how much you know and do not know so hopefully i can help with my multiple suggestions. Make sure the blue tooth is paired, a green light flash on s9 and blue bluetooth symbol on the iphone.

    or

    a screen should appear giving you options of sound output, if so select the s9.

    Last resort which worked for me was to sync the iphone again.

    I read if this doesnt work to restore factory setting and sync again.

    I have the S9 HD and paired it to my new 3G S. The forward/reverse functions do not work....a BIG disappointment, but all other features seem to work properly.

    I just updated to the new firmware on my 3G (not S) iphone. I am thoroughly amazed and its bluetooth integration. I paired the motorola S9 with the iphone (without the A2DP adaptor -which I had been using) no problem!!! I actually get better volume now!!!

    To Pair
    To pair the Motorola S9, press and hold the power button until LED light flashes in blue a few times, then turns solid blue indicating your headset is ready to pair. Use your iphone to find the headset and pair with it using the default pass code: 0000.


    I just bought a Mazda CX-9 car with blue tooth streaming audio capability. As soon as brought my iphone in the car, the car stereo recognized it a piped the music through my car stereo flawlessly. On glitch was my videos had some delay between the audio and the video.

    I have the same issue. 2G iphone updated with 3.0 firmware, and NO IPOD sound. Still get telephony, but no stereo bluetooth that the rev3 version was supposedly to provide. My understanding is the that iphone had the appropriate radio/hardware, and only was lacking the o/s support.

    Called Apple's tech support yesterday relative to losing iTunes mono playback over my S9 headset via my 2E iPhone after the 3.0 upgrade. Was told that such is not supported and that my original work-around evidently exploited a bug. She made no promises whatsoever that such might be regained, rather that I should be satisfied that, in total, more features were gained in the 3.0 upgrade than were lost. At least I still have mono telephone capability through the S9.

    Wonder if any adapters might still work with the 2E phone and the 3.0 firmware?

    With the 3G I couldn't get it to do the phone and music at the same time. While I was listening to it (and unable to use back and forward), I got a call which went to the phone itself and when the call ended it started playing out of the speaker on the phone. Is it me or is the iPhone really hokey when it comes to the actual iPod part?

    My nav in my car has also had issues with it since the 3.0 release (Pioneer AVIC D-3). I just wish that the thing worked. While I definitely think it is the best phone overall, I have been disappointed with the run-around on the whole bluetooth/accessory compatibility issues.

    I understand that you can't support every piece of hardware out there, but these are using standard bluetooth protocols. I was using the Sony adapter before as well and can't use that now either. I am sure they will magically find a fix as soon as they release their own competing bluetooth headset. Sez la vie with Apple I suppose. I really hope that they fix this because I don't want to have to carry my phone with me around the gym and crack the screen!
