thanks - I think I've covered this but I'll go through it all again tonight...
Question - Is it necessary to have the hot spot running on the iPhone prior to trying to establishing the bluetooth connection from the MacBook to the iPhone?

thanks - will check again at home - I didn't want to confuse this post question however I also can't seem to teether from iPhone 3GS to MacBook Pro via USB either...so kind of feels like something more sinister...
Additional note - Should have mentioned I can teether successfully from my iPhone 3GS to our iPad 2 (so it's just when trying to teether to my MacBook Pro I'm having the issue)....

nothing in these articles helped unfortunately - some more clarification:
- tethering via USB from iPhone 3G to MacBook Pro => WORKS
- tethering via Bluetooth => does NOT work, with bluetooth connectioning not staying up
During pairing process:
- devices "see each other"
- pairing appears to work, then you see that the connection drops out directly afterwards (almost immediately)
- on iPhone message = "Connection Unsuccessful - XXX's MacBook Pro is not supported"
- on MacBook - it's just the connection in Bluetooth options shows up as not connected
- in /var/log/system I see some bluetooth related lines:
Apr 18 19:33:14 Gregs-MacBook-Pro bnepd: [IOBluetoothDevice instantiateChannel] BluetoothHCIAuthenticationRequested failed (0x0006), so retry
Apr 18 19:33:14 Gregs-MacBook-Pro sandboxd (): bnepd(18950) deny mach-lookup com.apple.blued

Apr 18 19:33:53 Gregs-MacBook-Pro blued: Removing Bluetooth configured device: 00-26-08-23-23-9d
Any other ideas? Is it a physical problem with my MBP? but then again my bluetooth mouse stays connected ok. And in terms of the iPhone well it tethers fine to the iPad via bluetooth....

Is it really not possible to connect 3gs bluetooth to MBP? I was able to pair them but the iphone said MBP is not compatible and just asked me to "forget this network"

I have exactly the same problem ! Any luck with that?
It used to work fine and now it doesn't even connect to my iPad
