    Hi, I have an iPhone 3g and I'm trying to connect my phone to my mac laptop thru bluetooth but it's not connecting. They read each other and stuff but won't connect at all. What am I doing wrong?

    Also why is YouTube quality over 3G horrible? When I play it over wifi it looks great but over 3G you can hardly watch anything. They should up the quality cause it's trully bad quality, is there anything you can do to have a better YouTube quality video over 3G? Thanks.

    Because when a video is uploaded to Youtube it is automatically recoded into different streams. One of them is mobile, one of them is normal and the last one is high quality or HD. High quality requires a video bitrate of at least 1600kbps and HD requires 6400kbps.

    When you play videos on mobile devices, the mobile stream automatically gets selected.
