iPhone 4s fails to connect with MacMini [Baryon] Mountain Lion 10.8.1

Tried to connect iPhone 4s with MacMini Mountain Lion 10.8.1 [Baryon] as follows:

Set up a Bluetooth device

Before you can use your mobile phone to connect to the Internet or share contact information, share files with another device, or use a Bluetooth enabled keyboard, mouse, or trackpad, you need to set up the device to work with your computer. Once you’ve set up the device, it’s “paired” with your computer, and you can see the device listed in Bluetooth preferences.
You need to pair your computer with the device only once. The device remains paired until you delete the pairing.

Choose “Set up Bluetooth device” from the Bluetooth status menu in the menu bar, and then follow the onscreen instructions for the type of device you want to set up.
If the Bluetooth status menu isn’t visible, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Bluetooth, and then select “Show Bluetooth status in the menu bar.”

To delete a pairing with a device, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, and then click Bluetooth. Select the device you want to delete in the list, and click Delete (-). The next time you want to use the device, you may have to pair with it.

Here is where trouble starts...

From Bluetooth Setup Assistant...
Attempting to pair with "JAMAR iPhone"
783019 - etc.

Conclusion [after selecting iPhone from list]
Congratulations! Your computer is now set up to use your iPhone

Selected Baryon from Bluetooth devices on iPhone [2 others not selected]

Connection Unsuccessful
"Baryon" is not supported - Forget Device

Repeated 2 times same failure

How do I connect iPhone via Bluetooth to Baryon?
1 Solution
You can't connect your iPhone with your Mac. From your iPhone you can only connect to a handsfree bluetooth device.

Thanks for prompt response. Seems unreasonable, but so be it!
