Currently Being ModeratedJul 16, 2008 9:27 AM (in response to Scala)Bluetooth on an iPhone is for headsets and some car systems only. You cannot at this time connect to another phone or a computer via Bluetooth.Mac Pro 2.66Ghz 4GB, Mac OS X (10.5.4), PowerMac G5 DP w/ Mac OS X 10.5.4; Dell w/ Windows XP SP3

Currently Being ModeratedJul 16, 2008 10:11 AM (in response to Scala)A BT device might see the iPhone and seem to be able to pair with it, but unless there's something in the iPhone 3G that's not been announced by Apple, nothing useful is going to happen after that. There's just no BT profile in the iPhone for connecting to another phone or to a computer.
As to not finding the headset, perhaps if you post the model of headset you have, someone will be able to provide advice. I'd suggest you start a new topic for that, with a subject line something like "iPhone unable to connect to <insert your model here> headset".
