I bought yesterday two Iphone 4s and 5 ios 6.0.1.  The bluetooth is enabled but does not find any device ( Iphone, MacBook Pro) . We are already the weekend and I can not get help from support.


I thought exchanging against other Monday, but first I would like to know if there is something I need to activate for the bluetooth working properly


Thank you for your help.



iPhone 4S, iOS 6.0.1, and Iphone 5

    Well, leave the building Elvis.  No one here cares.  We are all users like yourself.


    A little effort on your part would have revealed that no issue exists, the iPhones are working as designed.

    Okay, I see your intelligence is lacking.


    Bluetooth file transfer is not supported which is why the 4S cannot see the 5 and vice versa.

    This is also why the iPhones will not connect to the computer.


    Only Bluetooth tethering is supported between a computer and an iDevice.


    Take the device to an Apple store if you like, they will tell you the same thing.
