    I am trying to connect my mackbook unibody with iphone via bluetooth. I got as far as getting the 2 paired. Then on the iphone I press my macbook and it connects for a sec. then disconnects. Any one has been able to keep them connected? Please help!
    I need this for Internet tethering. USB works like a charm but I hate the wire.

    I have the same problem, mine used to work, however has suddenly stopped, i don't know if it is due to an apple update or something maybe to stop tethering (i was using the BenM tethering hack)

    Last time I tried was before the iPhone 3.0.1 update... after the update reports stated that the BenM tether hack still worked.

    I just tried to connect my phone and it's not connecting either.

    I'm using 3.0.1 and cannot connect. My wife is 3.0 and can connect.

    Both JB with exactly the same apps. Both trying to connect to 13" MBP unibody.

    I blame 3.0.1:(

    i tough it was a problem with my iphone or macbook

    My 3G with the benm thing mod, hehe, works perfectly , then one day (like 2 weeks ago, maybe more) it wouldnt connect, so i didnt think it too much and stop trying, that was on 3.0 and i didnt change anything on the phone ...

    Ohh i should add i havent tested on my 3GS...
