Title: Possible bluetooth issues with iphone 4 & iOS4
Post by: Nat_h 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

Great tip this. Eventually got my iphone 4 paired to the BT after following the instructions from another thread and was having the same trouble. set the BT on the phone as suggested and no problems since. Nice one. :D

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