    Can anyone help. I pressed "forget this device" on my iPhone when trying to link it to my iPad and now I can't get it back. I have tried reset networks but that did nothing. Tried powering off my phone and rebooting but that does not work.

    So you're seeking to restore the connection between those 2 devices?

    Try resetting both of them (hold Power & Home buttons simultaneously, letting go of both when you see the apple appear.) Then try again.

    Post if that works or not, to help out the next guy.

    It did not work. I can link the two devices using the hotspot - its very strange that the ipad will not show as a device on the iphone.

    Have these devices been paired & operational via BT previously?

    It sounds like all devices have been unpaired. Reboot devices, pair them again (enter codes).

    If that doesn't work, I don't know.
