    Its so annoying - it says searching for devices but it never does. This update has been hugely dissapointing!

    Doesn't matter. The option for Bluetooth wouldn't even be on a first gen Touch.

    It does work, but only for A2DP devices. Your regular cell phone headset won't work unless they have this profile.

    Mine does the same thing. I have tried to connect it to my computer and my car stereo, both of which should have this profile.

    Any idea why doesn't it time out after a while? It will search until the battery goes dead, if you let it.

    The good side of the grass.
    I think the only things the bluetooth will work with are headphones. Hopefully someone will come out with an app. for file transfer or expanded bluetooth capabilities.

    Or Apple will make that part of 4.0 upgrade at another $10.:rolleyes:

    It works with A2DP speakers and my Thinkpad T61p to output music. I don't know why it would work for you.

    It will work, but your other devices need to support A2DP stereo (headphones and speakers) and have to be put in pairing mode the first time your Touch looks for them.

    They don't have track fwd/back working, and there is no volume control from the Touch over bluetooth, but when it is paired with a decent set of headphones the audio quality is suprisingly good.

    There is no cell phone sync or file transfer support on the Touch. Yet. The ONLY thing it supports is stereo output to bluetooth headphones or speakers. No mono cell headsets. No cell phones. No PCs or Macs. No mice or keyboards. No network sharing.

    Some of what you want to do may come with 3.0 apps. Developers can add protocals to the bluetooth stack. Time will tell.

    Earpiece for Bluetooth

    I bought a Jaber 8040 and it works great because it uses A2DP, I can hear in one ear and listen too music in the other.

    Not an issue I've been having... using a SonyE BT adaptor to then stream to my car stereo - sounds great.. BUT.. after a while it does break up - switching BT on then off again does seem to sort it though....

    Bluetooth really doesn't work

    I've got some A2DP (whatever!) speakers that work perfectly with my mobile phone, but when I eventually got the iPod to sync, the music breaks up - you can barely make out what the song is! When the phone is paired up, the speakers can contol it to pause or skip tracks - doesn't work on the iPod. Bluetooth was the ONLY reason I paid to upgrade to 3.0. I feel robbed!
