MAIN PROBLEM: I have an iPhone i'd love to connect to the speakers but apparently this won't work without a hard connection (i.e. cable) or some form of transmitter - cheapest/best options would be appreciated :)

MINOR PROBLEM: Also, I want the speakers to play music from my PC - I put the dongle in and it said the drivers were installed successfully, etc. By fiddling within the device manager I can disable one set of speakers and enable the other - but I have to restart the PC for the changes to take affect. Any way for me to switch between speakers without restarting (im using Vista)?

Thanks all for reading, will rep any helpful contributions :)

just launch the accompanying bluetooth utilities from the PC,
it should recognised the speaker automatically
#3
Are the speakers and bluetooth ad2p or whatever compatible? I think they both need to be to be able to play music.

With a bit of fiddling i've managed to get them to work. But every time I want to switch between my speakers I have to restart the PC xD

Yup, they are. iPhone doesnt allow audio streaming to speakers nativley but it is capable of ad2p, so you need to actually connect the bluetooth speakers to the iphone yourself using either a cable or wireless transmitter, I think...

cant you just close the blutooth manager/utility?

When I disable one and enable the other it pops up with a box saying "you have made hardware changes, you must restart your PC for them to take affect".

Im on vista, btw.
