    The 3GS uses assisted GPS, which relies on the cell network for triangulation. If you have a SIM card in it and connected to the network, it should be pretty close (within 100 feet or so, maybe more).

    I have had no problems pairing my iPhone to my MacBook, just be sure that the bluetooth is on on both devices and that either the MacBook or the phone is discoverable (depends if you want to initiate the sync on the computer or the phone). You should then get the message that one wants to pair with the other and the security code.
