The iPhone 5 is discoverable and is found on my imac, but the mac thinks they are paring via bluetooth, while the iphone 5 says it is not supported.
That's because it isn't. iOS devices don't pair with computers, other mobile devices or even other iOS devices (unless both are using the same peer-to-peer app). iOS doesn't (and probably never will, by Apple policy) support BT file transfer.
