    New iPhone user.. got a few questions!
    Hi guys,

    I just got my iPhone (16GB, glad I waited!) about a week ago and am really loving it, however I've got a few questions, which I'd be grateful to have answered.

    1) I know there is no way to forward text messages, at least not one that is built into the phone, but is there some kind of third party app that allows this? I decided to make some sacrifices (no video recording, no MMS etc) when I bought the iPhone but I don't think I really thought through the SMS forwarding! If there's no way I guess I'll live with it.

    2) Does Bluetooth really only work with Apple earpieces? I tried to connect to my MBP and it said that no services were available. :S

    3) I can't drag and drop music from iTunes into the iPhone's name on the list of devices. Is this normal? How am I supposed to transfer music? So far I have been doing it through playlists.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    A SDK was released recently for the iPhone. So expect some 3rd party apps in the future. You could make one yourself!

    I have a non-Apple earpiece that works fine.

    And you're correct on the drag & drop. You have to sync your iPhone. I use the "sync checked songs and playlists" myself. But since you have the 16GB, you probably won't have to worry about that for awhile.
    When all else fails, try everything!
    The Rep System and you.
    Life's a joke...If you're not laughing, then you didn't get it.

    1) Yes, there are a couple of third party apps out there that currently allow you to forward text messages. You'll need to jailbreak your iPhone in order to get access to them. Unfortunately, I can't go into detail as it's against forum rules.

    2) Yes and no. No, you can use any Bluetooth headset with the iPhone. Yes, it only works with headsets and doesn't offer anything like file transfer.

    3) You have to check the box next to "Manually manage music and videos" under the Summary tab when your iPhone is plugged into iTunes.
