    The issue was about IPHONE compatibility, can't you give a hand first before correcting someone's statement. I'll try my friend's iphone later.

    Before ripping out each other's throats and arguing iPad release cycles, why doesn't someone actually try to help out the OP.

    You won't be able to connect Bluetooth from iPhone to PlayBook. Just isn't compatible, at least so far in my experience. You can use your iPhone's hotspot feature, but that will charge you $20 a month I believe. If you do that, you could also connect laptops and other tablets for your internet connection.

    Android will pair but not connect. I have a couple Android phones that are rooted and have custom ROMs and can't get them to connect with my PB. So it isn't just Apple.

    What are you planning to do once you connect the PlayBook and iPhone?

    PlayBook does not support Bluetooth File transfer besides Bridge and iPhone does not support Bluetooth tethering to PlayBook.

    I can't imagine why Apple would want to play nice with Playbook. They want you to buy an iPad. My son (who I would disown if I didn't love him ) had to rub my face in the fact that all three of his i-devices synched together seamlessly. As stated above, there are ways to share info between your iPhone & Playbook. Hope you find one that works for you. Love my pb btw - just wanted to add that for my own safety.

    wow not much help offered in this thread, OP was probably hoping for a solution to his issue. We have to give him some credit, he owns an iphone, but chose to buy a playbook.

    The are not many products that truly plays nice with their competition. For me, I care more about the product than the brand name, but sometimes I have to buy the brand name instead of a superior product (for MY needs) because it is the only way they work together smoothly.

    So for me, I like the PlayBook, so my next phone will be a BlackBerry (lucky for me BB10 will be out and I think that will be a superior product for my wants and needs). As a side note, I also tend to buy the "strong underdog". I supported Apple products before they were huge because they HAD to innovate and couldn't release a yearly refresh for high prices. BlackBerry now HAS to innovate, cannot grow stale and cannot base their sales on their brand name. It is a gamble but BB10 has to be great, and BlackBerry knows it.
