Try this:

to either or both iphones, hold down the power button so that the iphone turns off completely. Turn it back on and let it load up real quick. Then in your c class hit the button that connects the bluetooth then the one on the iphone 3g.

It should link?

I have the Nokie E65 and have no issues connecting via BT to my car.

Are you going through the process of pairing them up? Also, depending on the phone, I think you may have security features where you need to allow automatic connection from the car. The E65 have that setting where it would ask u if you want to accept the BT connection every time I turn the car on until I said just accept it as a trusted BT.

Try updating the software of your phone for bluetooth. Check if there is any update available for your phone.

I think its the BB. I was never able to get BB working with mine either. I recall reading somewhere where MB BT does not exactly work with all BT. I know it stinks but maybe you can BT to a GPS unit if you do not have the MM package.
