    I have been having a lot of problems with the Blue Tooth on the 3G. When I turn it off via Airplane mode, or with turning it off in Settings/General or when I totally turn off the phone and back on, I can not get the Blue Tooth to turn back on. The 'wheel" sits there and spins and never reaches the "Discover Mode". A couple days later the Blue Tooth start working, but then repeats the probem everytime its deactivated.

    Anyone else experience this issue

    Haven't experienced this issue. If it continues, you might consider performing a full restore via iTunes.

    Actually, the bluetooth on the iPhone will only discover headsets, so if you are looking to pair it with another device that is not a headset, it will not see it.

    Have you tried just hitting the Home button while it is "spinning" after you turn BT on?

    I ask this because I use a Jawbone 2 BT headset all day, every day. My routine is turn on Jawbone=>turn "on" BT on iPhone=> when it starts spinning hit Home button=> wait for beep in Jawbone and watch for BT emblem to highlight.

    You may already do this but I thought I would mention it just in case.

    Does a bluetooth icon appear in the top right hand corner of your screen next to the battery?

    Have tried full restore with I-Tunes, same result. Never reaches discover mode and no Blue Tooth Icon appears on main screen next to battery. When it does work, I have been able to pair with Motorola H12 headset and blue tooth phone in car.

    Actually, I paired my 3G with my laptop and was able to listen to both iPod and Pandora. The quality was amazingly good, except every few seconds anything I played had a brief stutter or hesitation. I 'm hoping that it only occurs when paired with my laptop and won't happen on a pair of Bluetooth headphones that I'll end up buying in the very near future.
