    I'm trying to connect my iPhone to my new mbp via bluetooth. The ultimate goal is being able to tether, using my different carrier profile that I have (4.0 maybe?). The thing I don't understand is that this worked legitimately like last week and then I got a new hdd and it now doesn't connect via bluetooth. If I go through the set up assistant, I can get the devices paired, but on both my computer and my iphone it says the devices are not "connected". If, on my iphone I click on "XXX's MacBook Pro - Not Connected" I can see on my computer that it is connected for about 3 seconds and then it goes back to not being connected. Does anyone know why I can't get these to connect? As they connected with no problems at all last week.

    Thanks,
    Nik

    On your iPhone, go to "Settings->General->Network". Do you see "Internet Tethering"?

    Now it seems to work? I'm not sure why it didn't before as I tried it endlessly, but I'm using it to post this.
