3.0 did NOT enable bluetooth on your ipod touch. well all know that all ipod touch's have the bluetooth chip in them, and altough bluetooth was on the features for 3.0 update, it only did so to iphones. ipod touch bluetooth is still W.I.P. yet another reason us ipod touch fans want an iphone :-/

Um... Why do I have Bluetooth then? iPod touch 2nd gens but not 1st gens got Bluetooth. Bluetooth was already on iPhones so why would they include it in 3.0 features? Is there anybody that could at least explain possible reasons why my iPod can't find my device?

iPhone OS 3.0 update brings stereo Bluetooth support to the 2nd generation iPod Touch, although it will only work with compatible Bluetooth stereo headphones or speakers. You wont be able to use just about any Bluetooth device with it as reported by many users. The iPhone 3.0 unlocks Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR with support for wireless streaming 2-channel audio with A2DP, wireless accessory control, and peer-to-peer connections.
It’s still very crippled as most of you might not even be able to use that Bluetooth hands free headset you got for your cell phone, to use with your iPod Touch to Skype, which is really unfair to be honest as Bluetooth is supposed to be an open protocol.

See! Now you found out for yourself! It does have Bluetooth, and it WORKS. I am pretty sure my bluethooth device is compatible, but myipods Bluetooth scanner isn't working.

Is there a hack to make more bluetooth headsets compatible?
