Default iPhone 4 hands-free for VW: help!

I can't get my VW and my iPhone 4 hands-free linked. The VW can see my iPhone, but says its not supported. I couldn't get the iPhone to see the VW. (And Yes, I did have bluetooth enabled, and No, the VW's manual doesn't help.) I've previously linked a mobile to the VW (can't remember if it was a Nokia or my iPhone 3).

Any suggestions?

Thanks in anticipation

Check that your iPhone software is up to date - apparently there was an upgrade released yesterday.

Some guys on VOC reported the same fault.

My guess is that it is not supported.

You could also try a full reboot on the iPhone (home button and on/off pressed for about 10 secs).
