    I was thinking about trading my subwoofers for a new 2nd Gen Touch, after my first gen's headphone jack has become defective. But I'm left with a question concerning the new iPhone 3.0. When the bluetooth is activated in the Touches, will it only enable gaming and device recognition, or will it also include the A2DP protocol. I was a little unclear on whether or not the bluetooth hardware would support stereo.

    I was thinking I would, but all I really wanted was the Bluetooth. Since they are activating it, I'm gonna go ahead and upgrade.

    99.9% sure. If you watch Apple events, they are always on the 2nd Tuesday, and the iPod event is always the 2nd Tuesday in September. It's whatever you feel like doing, but I expect that if you are even mildly interested in jailbreaking, that you'll be waiting a long time for a jb for iPT 3G to come out. Its either way. The only benefits of the new one may be a faster processor, and pay attention to WWDC when a new iPhone comes out, to see what is added that is plausible for iPod, and that's what you'll get. If I were you and I had a device, and didn't need an upgrade, I'd wait. But I upgrade every year, so its just me. I'll be getting a 3G the first day. Maybe I can be the first in my state again. :)

    Quick help please!

    So the iPod Touch 2G does have BT, but it's not activated from the OS?
    And the BTServer running in the background (I see it on MemStatus) is actually a real BT-service? I always thought it was something which is related to the WiFi....

    I thought the first gen iPhone had Bluetooth, why then can't they activate it for p2p gaming or a2dp. If it's bt can't be activated, I feel the iPod touch's could possibly not support a2dp.

    It has BT:
    "Specifications:
    OS provided: Apple MacOS X ; Band / mode: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 (Quadband) ; Wireless connectivity: IEEE 802.11b , IEEE 802.11g , Bluetooth 2.0 EDR " cnet.com
