I followed Ipad directions correctly. It is not in the process. Since the bluetooth keyboards works with the Iphone 4 all steps followed correctly. I have tried three different bluetooth keyboards none will pair.
I have tried 2 different keyboards with no luck. The newest one pairs with my iphone running the same iOS (6.1.2) with absolutly no trouble. I think it is the ipad 3 which has lousy wifi connectivity compared to my other iDevices. It's basically a dud and makes me wonder why I bought it!
