iPhone Bluetooth Connection NOT SUPPORTED

Hey folks!

I'm pretty stumped by this - I tried doing a bluetooth connection with my iPhone 4S after I installed 10.8, and the phone is telling me when it tries to connect that my laptop isn't supported.

Does this mean that the Dev Copy of 10.8 I have right now isn't currently compatible with the iPhone? Is there a fix around this?

I did not know that an iPhone can sync data from your Mac via Bluetooth. I always thought you can only sync via the 30pin connector or WiFi (or Cloud services).

What I meant was the devices are connecting together. I noticed this when I was trying to use Keynote Remote and it wouldn't connect to the laptop.

When I go to my bluetooth setting on my phone and computer - they see each other, but when they try to connect, the phone says the laptop is not supported.
