    I'm in the same boat. It'll get fixed, though.

    Same here. My Bluetooth wasn't working in my friends car either. GM issue?

    Had same problem and thought was in the same boat. Turns out Bluetooth isn't the culprit.

    rMBP and iPhone 5 do not pair - that is still the case however, after checking on the web I found the following solution:

    1. make sure wifi and bt are on
    2. log out of iCloud on both devices
    3. restart / reboot both devices
    4. log into iCloud on both devices
    5. make sure both devices are on the same wifi network

    Continuity and Handoff appear to work only through iCloud and Wifi.

    Both work for me now.

    Good luck!

    Edit: my iPhone 5 is running iOS 8 GM, rMBP is running Yosemite DP7
