    Are the devices in pairing mode?

    i dont even know what u mean by that. iv neva really used it but i bought a cd player n it has bluetooth cnection to it but we cant get it to connect to that and we cant connect to eachother either i have no idea what im doing

    The cd player must be in pairing mode. Look at the directions that came with it. Once it is in pairing mode the iPhones will see it click on pair device and enter the code the instructions tell you to. It is usually 1234 or 0000. If it didn't have a pairing mode then anyone driving next to you could pair with your cd player and play their music on your radio. Most Stereo/CD players with Bluetooth have a button on them that looks like a telephone. push and hold that button until the screen says pairing then look on the phone find the device under bluetooth settings and select pair device. It will then ask you for the pin number which is usually 1234 or 0000.

    ok we managed to connect a sony ericson phone with the cd player so thats all working but we still cant get the ipone to conect to any device. how do i pair them cos when u go into bluetooth on the iphone it only has option on turning on or off.

    The pairing mode must be turned on from the CD player. Bluetooth must be turned on on the phone. The iPhone will only look for another bluetooth signal in pairing mode. Which is to say that the iPhone doesn't have a pairing mode and will only connect to other devices that do.

    ok but my iphone and my partners iphone isnt picking up the cd player or even eachothers phones. nothing is coming up it just keeps saying searching. im sorry if im not making sence but i have no idea bout this stuff thank u for helping me

    It won't pick up the other phone because you can't pair 2 iPhone via Bluetooth. Did you find out how to get the CD player into Pairing mode? Is this a Car stereo? If it is a portable CD player then you probably can't connect them together. Some portable CD players that have Bluetooth are for Bluetooth headsets only and can only connect to a device that can go into pairing mode.

    yea we got the car cd player into pairing mode and managed to pair it with our old sony ericson phone but we cant get the iphone to pick it up.

    Try turning off the bluetooth and then back on on the iPhones. If that doesn't work try resetting the phones by holding down the home button and the sleep button until the Apple logo appears. Then open up bluetooth settings and turn on Bluetooth again. Keep in mind once the CD player connected with the old sony phone it stopped being in Pairing mode and will have to be put in pairing mode again to pair with the iPhones. it also will only stay in pairing mode for about a minute give or take a few.
