Possible bluetooth issues with iphone 4 & iOS4
« on: October 13, 2010, 11:07:09 AM »
Since upgrading to an iphone 4, my BT refused to make calls, and the BT connection would drop every now and again - it just seem rather flaky.

The phone book would transfer, and you could select a number to call, but it would not make the call, nor receive them.

So I tried deleting all the previous parings and re-pairing, removing the BT module and reconnecting it, and even taking the battery out for 20 mins - none of these made any difference to the issue.

So I moved my attention back to the phone.... from the BT control panel on the phone, toggling "phone favourites" and "phone recents" off, cured my issue. I assume these options must of come in with iOS4.

These are the options;



Now I have functioning BT again, and I hope this may be of some help

I got mine paired no problem, I've seen a few posts over the net with people having trouble though.
