What I would like to do is find a bluetooth capable phone that I can pair with my iPhone and will remain paired even if my iPhone is paired with a bluetooth headset at the same time.

I had purchased the AT&T phone model TL92278, but, if I forgot to turn off my headset just before I returned home, the phone would no longer be paired with my iPhone. It was easy, but annoying to have to pair it again constantly.

Basically, I am wondering if there is a phone out there that can remain paired with my iPhone while my iPhone is paired with a headset.

I still dont understand what a phone paired to an iPhone does for you. – ConstantineK Aug 9 '11 at 14:38
I can have multiple handsets spread throughout my home and when someone calls me on my iPhone, those handsets will ring. I do not need to carry my iPhone with me all of the time while at home. – ericgorr Aug 15 '11 at 14:04

I have had good experience with Uniden. They make a range of phones that pair to your iPhone via bluetooth. They are good for incoming but have not yet worked out how to make outgoing calls through them.

And, if you arrive at home with your phone paired with a bluetooth headset, does your Uniden phone remain paired with your iPhone? – ericgorr Dec 16 '11 at 16:42
