Hi, I m using iPhone 3gs. OS Version: 3.0 (7A341). I installed iBluetooth application successfully. However, application fails to start giving following error "Unable to start the stack, pls try restarting the application. If the problem persist, try rebooting the device." I rebooted iPhone few times, but that didn't help. Pls help
