Hi there -

I have an 8GB 2nd generation iPod Touch and I've heard that if I update it to the 3.1 version, then I can activate bluetooth on it.

However, I've done the upgrade and also downloaded a bluetooth app, but I'm not getting any bluetooth options in my settings menu, nor is my bluetooth app appearing on my iPod. Also, in iTunes when i go to manually put apps from iTunes to my iPod, it keeps unchecking my bluetooth app as though it can't put it on my iPod or something.

So does anyone out there know how I can get my bluetooth to work?
All help is appreciated

    You do have the option for bluetooth. What kind of app is it? The bluetooth option should be under Settings> General and the 5th option down says Bluetooth and when you open it you can turn it on or off.

    Did you buy your iPod Touch new or used? What I'm getting at is it at all possible your device could be the 1st generation iPod Touch? I'm not trying to offend you in any way, but from what you've told us it sure sounds like a 1st generation. When you go to Settings>General you should be seeing "BlueTooth" right under "NetWork".

    Or…perhaps iPhone OS 3.1 didn't load properly. When you sync your iPod does it say "Software Version 3.1" (on the Summary tab)?
