    Is there any way to pair a Bluetooth keyboard with the iPhone? I've seen it done in a tech demo video, but I cannot find anything that was released.

    Thanks in advance.

    IT is in iOS 4.0. No hack necessary. It's in the bluetooth settings.

    Except iOS4 doesn't work on first generation iPhones.

    I'm also waiting to see if there is a hack to get bluetooth keyboard support active on the iPhone 3G, as it is currently disabled.

    For the original iPhone, check out the jailbreak app BTstack Keyboard. It installs an alternate bluetooth stack that can pair the keyboard. You have to disable the built-in bluetooth feature in order to use it, though.

    Thanks!

    I am gonna buy a mini Bluetooth keyboard and build a new case so it can slide out. Hopefully I can find one in Dvorak, but I guess qwerty will work.
