    Yeh, it would be nice if I could stream ipod content to my bluetooth car stereo.

    This might work fine for sources like audiobooks and podcasts, but since the iPhone doesn't support the A2DP (ie, stereo) Bluetooth headset profile, you will only be getting monaural audio at a relatively low quality after Bluetooth compression.

    The bottom line is that the iPhone isn't presently designed to play iPod audio over Bluetooth. It's only for phone headset support.

    Yes, but technically just about any audio device will work with a Bluetooth adapter, so that's not really anything special with regards to the iPhone....

    Yes, many of us are eagerly awaiting A2DP support. Should be available in a firmware update at some stage... let's just hope they don't restrict the iPhone to work with apple only A2DP stereo headsets... that would be a bummer.

    As the last poster points out bluetooth stereo adapters will work with any sound device with a 3.55MM headphone jack. Not the perfect solution but a workaround until A2DP is implemented. The A2DP BT profile also allows for the control of volume, track selection and other things.

    will full bluetooth functionality be something that apple releases as an update, or is it something that someone out there will be able to write a crack for... It would be nice to have the iphone sync via bluetooth and transfer files and music with other phones/devices

    Whether we'll ever get full Bluetooth functionality in an update is debatable, as Apple has the whole device tied into iTunes.

    To be fair, syncing all media content via Bluetooth is abysmally slow (I do it with my E90 and Nokia Media Transfer Suite), and would be a drain on battery. Realistically, the iPhone is going to need to be plugged in every night anyway, and the cradle is a logical place to do so.

    I'd personally like to see wireless calendar/contact sync (ie, ala iSync), but I don't see that happening any time soon either.

    The good news is that this kind of thing can be added via firmware, but it's a question of what Apple is willing to provide. Full Bluetooth sync would also require integration on the Mac/PC end (since iTunes doesn't necessarily have the "hooks" for wireless sync right now).

    A2DP is somewhat more likely, and I'm very surprised it wasn't there in rev1 for such a media-centric device.
