    Hey All..

    I'm using my unlocked iPhone with my Vodafone sim card. But I can't seem to get the BlueTooth to work at all. It just keeps searching for devices when I go into the settings. The little wheel just keeps turning and it says searching. Kinda strange. I can't see how it doesn't work. Anyways, is anyone else experiencing similar issues? Has anyone perhaps resolved it.

    Would apprecite your help.

    I too have the same problem with unlocked 1.0.2 iPhone..

    I was trying to fix my Wi-Fi Problem, which also fixed my Bluetooth problem.

    Go to Settings->General->Reset->Reset Network Settings

    it worked...

    Well, apple saved a few bucks when it came to installing bluetooth hardware.
    U can't connect ur iPhone to anything but the apple Headsets and such that are compatible.....
    Which means no sending pics to friends phones.....
    Unless someone knows a fine hack of some kind.

    it seems most are having the pairing issue which leads me to believe that somewhere the pairing is not connecting. Just so you know i found on a apple forum or website that the common pairing is either 0000 or 0001 and if you pair with any other digits it could be causing a connection problem I was using 3464 and though it showed connected and my car audio system it would never actually connect (though it would show connected). so I found 2 things that worked IF and only IF it is connected but not 100% so to say! You will have to experience it so to say! it shows connected but doesn't activate or let you use the bluetooth. HERE iS THE FIX IN THIS CASE. Disconnect the blue tooth while it is disconnected toggle the airplane mode ( turn it on and off) then reconnect the bluetooth and boom it should work. Of course my iphone is jailbroke and activated on tmobile and using the 2.01 software from winpwn.
    Hope this helps all you guys out.

    Thanks. This network reset worked on my jailbroken iPhone 3.1.2 where the bluetooth stopped working and kept turning off, instantly.

    Try resetting your device to solve iPhone Bluetooth issues.
