    Default Bluetooth Issue

    Hey all,

    I unlocked my iphone yesterday no problem. Everything works fine wifi and all except my bluetooth. I looked on the forums and read about the termcap file that you have to delete to get your bluetooth running.... I used winscp and I had no luck finding it at all.

    Then I read another post saying that doing a restore on the phone should make it run. Went through the process and still no luck.

    But this is the weird part when I'm in the bluetooth search on the iphone it just keeps on searching. If i use another phone (eg. Phone A) while the iphone bluetooth is searching, Phone A can see the iPhone and allows me to send the passkey.... low and behold the iPhone sees that Phone A is sending a passkey and allows it to pair.

    Really out of ideas on this one. Hope someone can help me out. Thanks!
    (I also used numerous other bluetooth devices and no luck on the iphone)

    Hey Van,

    Just to let you know I'm noticing the iPhone is very picky syncing to certain bluetooth devices. I just found my bluetooth headset and it was able to detect no problem. But so far it can't find my BT gps device, any of my pocketpc phones and my computer.

    Did you unlock you iphone or just activate it? You can only get your bluetooth working if you HW unlocked it. When you HW unlock it you add that termcap file or something and you have to delete it.

    I personally just activated mine and my bluetooth doesn't work. Everyone who activated their iphones like you has the same problem with the bluetooth just like you (Our iphones can't find other devices, but other devices can find us).

    Hopefully someone will release a hack, program, or fix for it soon.

    Well thats the weird part my phone is hardware unlocked. I followed the guide in the sticky post to do my unlocking also. I looked everywhere for that termcap file and no luck. It was never on there after my hardware unlock

    use ibrickr_v0.8 delete termcap from etc and etc/etc

    from both places shud be deleted and after delete connect it again to ibrickr_v0.8 and see if the files are there? If they are still there than set permission to 0755 first than delete after that reboot the phone and enjoy a working BT

    100% tested
