Pairing my bluetooth with iPhone version 3.1.2

I just got a bluetooth and I'm having a hard time pairing this thing with my iPhone.

First off, with the "boom" not extended, I'll get the purple light. I'll then extend the mike and the purple light will go off. I don't know if that's a problem or not, but that's the first anomaly that I would bring to the surface.

As I'm doing this, I've got the iPhone search for Bluetooth devices, but it never "sees" the bluetooth with the exception of one time. But even then, it never recognized the device and I'm still stuck.

Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, if its not iPhone 3G (I am not sure if this problem exists with iPhone 3G too), I remember that the iPhone will only allow bluetooth Stereo Headphones to be paired with it for listening to music.

For other devices, iPhone does not simply provide those services. Bluetooth devices communicate with each other by one device allowing various services on it & the other accessing those services. Other types of bluetooth Services are -

Personal Area Network
Dial-up Networking
Object Push
File Sharing
Serial Port
Object Push
Mouse / Keyboard (Human interface Device)
Headset & Microphone

There maybe others but the above are just for your knowledge.

If it is a Bluetooth Headphone, make sure you have set Bluetooth ON, and when you pair it enter 0000 as the passkey if asked. I maybe a bit wrong here with the Pairing instructions, as I used the iPhone earlier but know of the flaw with Bluetooth in iPhones.
