I have just got my playbook, but haven;t been able to bluetooth tether to my Iphone because the blackberry only supports Bluetooth DUN, and Iphones only support bluetooth PAN.
I can tether by wifi, but it is a real pain because every time I want to connect to the internet, I have to toggle wifi tethering on and off on the Iphone first, then wait for the playbook to make the connection (as the Iphone's wifi tether turns off after 90 seconds of inactivity).
If the playbook supported PAN then the Iphone would just wake up automatically (like it does for my laptop).
Could you tell me if there are any plans to support this, as if not then I probably need to return the playbook as having to do the Iphone wifi toggle every time I want to use it is just too irritating. And I specifically bought the Playbook for when I am working away due to its compact size.

I would love to see playbook to support Bluetooth PAN profile. That makes it one step forward to a better mobile device.

Sounds like a problem with the iphone to me....no backwards compatability....stupid apple always trying to make their devices so only other apple devices can connect to them...ditch the iphone, grab an android.
