It won't work with your Mac because syncing that way is not supported.

I was able to use my Apple bluetooth keyboard just fine but many apps aren't made to work correctly with this yet as they won't show what you are typing.

It works absolutely perfect for me. Using a logitech dinovo edge bt-keyboard.

did i say anything about syncing through bluetooth?
I've been using BluePhoneElite 2 between my mac and my iphone 3.0, and i managed to (after some work) get them to pair properly and work consistently through bluetooth, but with ios 4 i can't get BluePhoneElite 2 to recognize my iphone.

That's exactly your problem, you weren't specific so I assumed it was to sync. That is usually what people want to connect to their Macs for. You may want to give more details next time.

uhhummmm...

you went from: "Anyone else get inconsistent/ erratic behavior with bluetooth devices keyboards... handfree..."

to: "It won't work with your Mac because syncing that way is not supported."

unspecific: "keyboards, handfree" hmmmm ... never mind my mildly aggro fellow mac nut with possible poor reading skills.

And you seem to have forgotten:

Which is why I replied that your iPhone won't sync with your Mac. You weren't specific enough....
