    Does anyone know what the range of the iPhone bluetooth is? I looked up bluetooth on wiki and it says it can be 10 meters or 100 meters. How can find this out?

    You would have to be in the same room for maximum quality.

    So 10 meters? And what do you mean by quality, it would still work but lowers quality?

    the further away you go, the reduction in the quality.

    I got it running quite succesfully. It's nice but gets choppy on screen changes.

    MadGoat what do you mean when screen changes? You mean your headphone gets choppy when you switch screens in the phone?

    Yes, if I change screens, like away from iPod to anything else, I lose a second of audio... This could be my headphones, They are good Sony's, not sure.

    awesome Madgoat can you test for me, how far away can you walk before losing audio?

    Bluetooth class 1 uses more power and can send a farther distance. (100 meters) Check out the dragon Bluetooth headset to see what I mean. But to get this complete range, both devices need to be Bluetooth class 1. iPhone and iPhone 3g are class 2 devices and max out at 10 meter range.

    okay....I got it working, but still a problem. I have the iMuff headphones...

    they have volume control, prev, next, play, pause, but none of the iMuff's controls are working....the volume is just at one level the whole time..oh well I guess

    Why are you dying to know if it's over 10 meters?

    Is there something in your house that's specifically over 10 meters away, that you want to use with your iPhone?

    If you google iPhone or iPhone 3g Bluetooth class you'll get the info. I researched this because I was interested in the Dragon bluetooth headset which is class 1.

    Yes cellocello I would like to use a headset further away from the 10 meters, some headset allows up to 100 meters. I thought this would be quick answer because one only has to talk away for 3 seconds and come back.

    iPhone's have Class 2 Bluetooth so the range is 10m.

    But the bluetooth chip is a bluecore6. Reading up on this chip, it says that it can provide class 1 support without any external amplifiers. Any thoughts?
