Ouch... my Land Rover dealership upgraded the software for free! There's no reason they should have charged you for a simple software upgrade unless they did other stuff at the same time, especially since it didn't fix the problem.My 2006 HSE had all its Software updated today for cost of $230 at a dealer and my 4S still won't re-pair. It pails easily and works great, but I have to repair it after each engine start. Apple says its because they think Rover is still using Blutooth 3 and the 4s requires Bluetooth version 4.
I had the exact same issue, except with a BlackBerry, rather than an iPhone. The problem, as I understand it, is that the Bluetooth module in the 2006 (and maybe up to 2008 or 2010) isn't compatible. The software can be updated, but, as you note, that may not fix the problem.My 2006 HSE had all its Software updated today for cost of $230 at a dealer and my 4S still won't re-pair.

My old 3G worked fine. The blurb below makes it sound like 4 should work with 3....
One of the lesser-known facts to emerge about the iPhone 4S yesterday is that it is the first phone to launch with Bluetooth 4.0, the latest version of Bluetooth. Not many products are available with Bluetooth 4.0 just yet--in fact, two of the most recent products to ship with Bluetooth 4.0 are also from Apple: the MacBook Air and the Mac Mini. Bluetooth 4.0 is backward-compatible with all other versions of Bluetooth, so you can pair existing Bluetooth headsets with the new iPhone without a problem.
My 3GS paired all of the time automatically. My iPhone 5 does not.I've never had a problem on my 06 RR SC. My 3GS and my current 4S needed to be paired once and they connect automatically every time. I do, however, want to upgrade to the new Bluetooth module though because callers say the sound quality blows.
This site below had a RR Bluetooth module updating service. For $100 they'll send you an updated Bluetooth module and you agree to send your old one back to them. It's supposed to fix the iPhone 4/5 issue AND give you access to your phonebook on the touch screen. I'm going o give it a try. The FFRR guys on the Disco site say it works like a charm.
