    Most single speaker bluetooth earpieces are only meant for telephone conversations and PMP devices will not allow them to work....it will work with an iPhone but not an iPad or iPod touch. There are many stereo media consumption bluetooth headphones that will work just fine.

    I use my bluetooth car stereo with my iPad sometimes and my iPhone all the time.

    Well i guess that makes sense. My bt earpiece would play music from my nokia phone, but wont with my huawei, so iguess i can uderstand it wont with the ipad, what a bummer tho. Guess i need to go find a decent pair of bt headphones. Anyone got any suggestions? Also, I hadnt thought of using the ipad in my car - the factory stereo is bt, so i will give it a shot. Thanks forum!

    Just make sure the ones you get are A2DP compatible, and they should work with your iPad. I got the Sennheiser MM200 headset and that works nicely, though it's not the cheapest out there.

    One last thing to try, if you haven't already. Ensure you headset is un-paired from everything else before you try to pair it with the Ipad.

    Hi - I just found this forum and I am desperately trying to pair my blackberry 8530 bluetooth to my iPad. The iPad just searches but never connects to the blackberry. The phone shows that the iPad is a paired device but the iPad just searches and searches.. Help? thanks

    You cant do that without jail breaking ipad, As said before, there is only some headsets ipad is compatible with, but as for phones, you have to jail break ipad and buy a program in order to connect to BT phones, but even so, I dont think there is much you can do that way.

    The iPad Bluetooth has a very limited set of peripherals that it will connect to. Bluetooth keyboards are OK as are 'proper' stereo headsets and Bluetooth enabled stereo systems but not most Bluetooth cellphone earpieces.

    So the iPad will not connect via Bluetooth to PCs, Bluetooth printers, cameras with a Bluetooth interface or cellphones. Your cellphone may 'see' the iPad and vice versa, but they will not pair.

    As the previous poster intimated, there's really no (easy) way around this problem.
