The Bluetooth settings screen shows my phone, and my phones shows my laptop, but when I try to connect, my phone says that the pairing was unsuccessful and that I should make sure I'm in range of my laptop, even though it's sitting right next to it.

What do I do?

I have never had good success with pairing anything to my iPhone, even an iPad or another iPhone... but that has been some time since I have tried so I don't know if things have improved with recent updates or not. –  TheX Apr 26 '13 at 15:48
