You shouldn't face this issue at all. Even if your headset doesn't support bluetooth 2.1 + edr, it should pair OK with the iPhone, since bluetooth 2.1 is backwards compatible with bluetooth 1.x. The only difference would be that you would only be able to use your headset for calls, and not for streaming music to it (you will need a A2DP - enabled headset for this).
Make sure you're setting your headset into pairing mode (you'll have to read the headset's manual in order to see how to do this) and check iPhone's bluetooth settings. Your headset should then pop up in there.
OK, I have made a progress!
I have reseted iPhone to factory settings, activated it again, synchronized with iTunes and now Bluetooth works properly, both devices are able to comunicate, see each other. Bluetrek skin is able to comunicate with iPhone 3GS.
Probably some software bug apeared during previous instalation or whatever.
Thank you for help!

Did you know that there are roughly twenty-five Bluetooth profiles? iPhone only supports the Hands-Free Profile (HFP) and Headset Profile (HSP). You’ve heard my bellyache over the lack of support for Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) and Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP). If supported, these two profiles would stream music wirelessly from the iPhone to any supported Bluetooth headsets (i.e. Etymotic ety8) or wireless HiFi speakers (i.e. Com One Bluetooth Speaker System). Well, I’m back again with another Bluetooth ***** session.
Parrot finally sent me their new 7-inch Photo Viewer. Nearly every single Bluetooth-enabled phone on the market supports the Basic Imaging Profile (BIP), File Transfer Profile (FTP), and Object Push Profile (OPP). Guess what? iPhone can’t send images to the Photo Viewer. Why? Because iPhone’s Bluetooth is either extremely dumb, crippled or both.
While I’m on the subject, not that I would ever want to use dial-up networking over EDGE, iPhone doesn’t support the Dial-Up Networking Profile (DUN).
Am I alone or are you pretty p----d off too?
