Bluetooth, iPhones, and Siennas

I bought a 2011 LE, and I'm very happy with it. One puzzle: I can't figure out how to play audio with my iPhone using Bluetooth. I have them connected (or paired or whatever the term is), and it briefly played over the stereo, so I know it works. But now the stereo -- just the standard one that came with the Sienna -- always says the iPhone is paused. I've tried pressing play on the iPhone, pressing play on the stereo, but no luck.

Must be something unique about the Sienna.
It can't be paired correctly with phone stereo bluetooth. It means you can't listen the video/youtube or music from your phone bluetooth (A2DP) thru Sienna 2011 Bluetooth.
And It means that Toyota might have incorrectly claimed that their bluetooth on Sienna 2011 has support A2DP.
If you take your van to Toyota service, the tech sevice would tell you, I know but I did not design it. if you call Toyota corporation, no one would be able to help you and might ask you to bring to dealer. You are in deadend. Of course, you can't return the car :-). But again, their bluetooth A2DP does not function.
Do you think that Toyota deserves a class action on this. It's not about safety as brake got stuck, it's about advertising / claiming something and selling something else? I hope they fill fix it.
If you succesfully paired and able to listen your music from the phone thru bluetooth A2DP (stereo) on Sienna 2011 - Please post your phone model.
Also I can use the car bluetooth option to make and receive phone call as well
Again, please post anything you may learn.
For me I would try and have that window fix, otherwise, I will knock down that window and shield it up, so at least I put the poster of Sienna with 3 wheels.
It's the first time I purchase the Sienna LE and very disappointed Toyota marketing, it does not have a minimum basic feature. I have Camry LE 10 years ago, it has the automatic head light on when evening turns dark (so you would never forget and never get ticket).
