    I got my 3GS today and had bluetooth tethering working flawlessy on my iPhone 3G. I went to setup tethering on the 3GS, updated all the carrier files, etc, but my phone won't connect to my MacBook Pro. I have it paired, it just won't connect. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    no - 3G (running OS3 of course)

    so maybe 'exact' is a bit off - but you screenshots show exactly what I see.

    There was a bluetooth update for Mac OS X the other day....I just updated it and whola, tethering is working on the 3G S.

    I had that same exact problem until I rebooted my Mac. It has worked flawless since

    uiop I am having the same problem.

    On my 3G I had VV, MMS, and tethering working flawlessly. Now I am having issues.

    Make sure your bluetooth is up to date on your Mac.

    It also appears that the tethering hack has prevented me from using visual voicemail.

    Maybe a password perhaps? or perhaps a block on your computer that is not allowing the blutooth to connect. try the computer first, most likely not the 3GS.
