    Yesterday I purchased a Samsung wep850 bluetooth ear phone and tried many times to pair it with my ipad with no success. I called Apple tech support & they told me that if it would not pair it was not compatable with the ipad. Is there a list of bluetooth items that will pair with the ipad? This would save a lot of time purchasing items & having to return them. Oh it also would not pair with my ipod touch either. jim_joh

    Those of you with the Rocketfish headphones, does your mic work? Like with dragon speak naturally or other apps? I want to use it for a soft phone handset...

    John, I can also use the headphones for my iphone and people can hear me crystal clear. The mic works great. They go behind your hear and are very low key.

    My Jabra bluetooth set (earphone/mic) does not pair with the iPad.

    MY Plantronics Discovey 975 Does Not Connect Or Work With My iPad 3G 64. But It Does Sync WIth My Mac Pro And iPhone 3G. I Placed A Call To Plantronics, Still Waiting For A Call Back. Also The iPad 3g Blutooth Does Work Due To I Can Connect An Apple Keyboard. Any Helpful Suggestions Out There If Anyone Got These To Function.:confused:

    We need a sticky where people can post the blue tooth devices that work. How does one do that?

    I also am having issues with pairing my Pro Plantronics with my 3G 64 iPad.

    I am most interested in the response from Plantronics. I will call them too.

    Thanks for all the posts here.

    For people trying to pair phone headsets with their iPad, the iPad does not support that technology. If you're having a problem pairing like a stereo headset, that's a different story. But ones meant for phones do not work.
