    In reference to linking Apple devices.

    I managed to talk with Apple Support on a number of occasions.  The first person lead me up the garden path and I reset and restored the iPhone all to no avail.  Then I got an operator that seemed to know what he was talking about and he assured me that the iPhone 4s was not designed to link with any other Apple devices using BT, even though it has been possible.  (My iPhone 3G will pair with the iPad1). Some App developers use work-arounds that work well (eg PhotoSync).

    This doesn't help with the car problems.

    My 4s won't pair with my '09 Toyota Prius, BodyMediaFit armband, or my Jabra Easygo earpiece.  Only problem I had with my iPhone 3G was unable to sync Contact List with the car - had to manually enter #'s to the car's quickdial list - otherwise it paired with all 3 perfectly but all the recent iOS 'upgrades' + lack of support had slowed it so much that I finally bit the bullet & re-upped for 2 yrs for the 4S - shoulda waited ;(

    Same car, same problem. I got it to connect once and that was it.

  • Scott C Andrews Jr Level 1 Level 1

    I just formatted my phone and now it connects with no problems. So its definitely the phone. I had 70 plus apps and 1000 plus songs on it. I've owned every iPhone released save the 3GS and the 4. I have some of the original apps and they work great on the 4S. I also turned off wifi syncing but I don't think that would have anything to do with our issues. I will now try to put back some apps and music and see if the problem returns. I will update what I find.

    Now I put apps and music back on the phone and now it no longer connects. Where to begin?

    I will try just apps no music.

    As soon as I put anything on my phone the Bluetooth does not connect to the car. Does not make any sense.

    Yep me too!!!! I have a perfectly good BMW and my wife Audi we both upgraded to 4s big mistake . Niether of us can use our car kits. Reported to apple over a month ago and they didn't even know what I was talking about. Hopefully now they can see lots of us with this problem it will get fixed. What's happening apple ??? What are your plans ? Are you going to leave all these loyal customers in the wilderness ???

    Had an iPhone 4 connected to my smart fortwo Original Navigation system for 3 months. Got the iPhone 4S yesterday and....YES, no conection. Doesnt find the BT of the car, not my Mac Pro, nothing. It´s like a totally different Bluetooth platform. This is really boring. Probably a Bug. Hope Apple solve this situation on next update.

    CONTINUATION of iPhone 4s not pairing with my 2010 GTI.



    This worked for me thanks to a Genius at apple.

    1) SYNC your iPhone (4s) to your computer.

    2) Restore your iPhone (to it's original condition).

    3) Now pair your iPhone 4s to your GTI.


    If it pairs then load your music, apps, etc.  'fresh'  ...  do not load from a backup.


    My iPhone 4s now pairs with my 2010 GTI, finally.


    Good Luck

    That´s all good news, but I think we shouldn´t need to do all this. I don´t get why so many bugs.

  • andy watkins Level 1 Level 1

    I have just tried this solution to no avail, I think it's the software.
    My old 3gs would pair with my car without a problem before updating the software, I gave that phone to my daughter as I bought the new 4S. The 4S has never connected to anything and as soon as my daughter  updated the software on my old 3gs that now wont pair now either. I can only think it's the software?

  • rk1972 Level 1 Level 1

    I am having the same problems as everyone else. I will be going into the apple store to see if I can get a fix or just to continue the discussion with apple to see if they will take the hint and FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!

  • BrunuM Level 1 Level 1

    Ok. Got the 4S paired with Macbook pro and the car. A couple of resets and forced both mac and the car navigation system to search the phone. Not the other way.


    It´s working. Problem now is Siri. Still down since last night.

  • Shalimarlexia Level 1 Level 1

    I have tried all of the above to no avail. I was told by one of the Apple Customer Support staff members that Apple are aware of the issue and that the next available update should fix the problem. Question is: how long will it take for the new update to come out. I'm quite fed up with this issue!

  • kennethDoll Level 1 Level 1

    Yup, got the Iphone 4S today and it does not synch to any of my devices. This is very disappointing.
