    I have an android phone and a Bluetooth for that phone, does anyone know if the Bluetooth can connect to my iPad 2? I hope I can and listen to my music library...any suggestions?

    Hi Debraq68 - welcome to the forum! :)

    BT (Bluetooth) functions on iOS devices are limited, i.e. keyboards, speakers, wireless headphones - I've use a BT keyboard & headphones on my devices - not sure that much else is possible; BUT, I'd love to hear from others who may have found additional options.

    It should, so far all BT headphones and speakers I've tried have worked with both my iPad and iPhone, even the ones I used to use with my PDAs. Try them and see, just make sure you stop the pair with any other device, I don't think they can be connected to two or more devices actively at any one time

    Hi again Debraq68 - am I correct that you want to hear music from your iPad w/ Bluetooth headphones? If so, not sure how your Android phone is involved in the mix?

    For myself, I have a pair of Rockfish headphones (granted, not 'tiny'), but easy & comfortable - pair easily w/ my iPod or iPad for wireless listening to my music files on the iDevices - not sure if this is what you want but works for me (used today @ the YMCA w/ my iPod) - of course, there are plenty of other similar options - good luck in your search - Dave :)
