Anyone have any issues with there Bluetooth for this device? Are the iPhones only able to Bluetooth other AT&T devices? I tried Bluetoothing a Metro Phone, it appears, tries to connect, it lets you input the password for the connection, but never makes the connection.

Was the Metro PCS phone set as 'discoverable'? If not your iPhone will never see it. Any time you try and pair with bluetooth the device you want to pair to must be set 'discoverable' first.

Having zero experience with anything Metro. I don't have an answer. Maybe someone else will be able to reply. But in all my experience bluetooth is bluetooth and not vendor specific.

EDIT: I just remembered that my headset requires a passcode when pairing. However thats Plantronics and Blackberry. It's possible Metro requires one too? Just a thought.

yes, metro does require a passcode i had to type one in, well...it was a pairing code you set when someone is trying to access your device, "User is trying to connect, enter Pw, its 4 digits, the metro did that, then i entered the code when the prompt came up on my iphone, and "failed to connect" soon follows.

Unfortunately, I'm out of ideas. Hopefully someone else can contribute.
