iPhone Bluetooth pairing to Creative T3150

curiouswebster used Ask the Experts™
I have trouble getting my Creative T3150 to become visible on Bluetooth. I turned BT on with my iPhone and my MacBook, and had the Creative T3150 powered on. Yet, it is not visible on my my iPhone not my MacBook.

Is there a step I need to execute on the Creative T3150 to become visible?
