Has anyone managed to successfully connect to a mobile phone using bluetooth?. I've tried different phones and always get the "paired but not connected " message.

I was already in my bed but stand up to try it.
With my iPhone 4S iOS 5.1 it doesn't work over Bluetooth. Wifi hotspot works well.

So I think you are right. Get up guys and try it! Which phone works and which not?

iPhone doesn't. Over Bluetooth.

i guess the more pertinent question might be.. What are you trying to do? It will only stay connected to another handset for as long as it needs to be... so unless you're actually trying to actively use a BT connection it won't be connected.

you need to setup/install a BT profile. Check for AirBlue for iPhone.

I can pair devices but that's as far as it goes.If I try to transfer files it just wont connect.

I dont get the question,, Transfer files of using the tablet for sound or something?


For file sharing :
No problem at all first I transferred a picture from phone to tablet and that succeeded then
from tablet to phone also no problem,

Samsung Galaxy SII

But to connect with bluetooth and then Calling or something with the Tab, that just doesn't makes sense.

Same here, couldn't transfer files between my Tablet and ArcS (in either direction). Not much of an issue for me, but it's a shame BT connectivity is broken on the tablet. Here's hoping ICS will fix it
