Bluetooth help.

Guys, I finally updated my ancient mobile phone to one with bluetooth and paired it to my car. Seems to work fine except that the phonebook from my phone does not transfer to the car.

Any suggestions:iono:

We're missing a vital bit of information - what type of phone/carrier are you using?

It's a Telstra T6 made by ZTE. Seeing you are in the States, I doubt that you would have this phone there.

Kris some months ago sent me a patch to download, so that my phone would download its contacts to the Idrive.. I will have a look Monday on my work PC, but I think It might only work with Nokia phones..

Will let you know..

My first phone I had when I got the car didn't sync the phonebook, nor display signal info. Everything else worked fine. My latest phone works great, except it seems to randomly drop its bluetooth connection during some calls....

I'm using a SonyEricsson W880i here and it's synched up perfectly.

I do remember my dealer saying that some phones have a bit of trouble though, especially some of the smaller marques.

I guess this is the problem with such a broad range of technologies and interfaces out there?

I was told by the dealer all your contacts need to be on the SIM to sync. I moved mine from phone to SIM and voila.

YMMV

Thanks Dazza, tried that but to no avail. Oh well I guess I should have done my research and check compatibility before buying my phone.

With my phone, that's rubbish. My HTC Touch works fine with all details in the phone memory, signal strength even works...

No sir, never seen it before. Likely it is a non-approved phone, a list can be found here: http://www.wireless4bmw.com/phones2.html

That is only for the US, and it doesn't seem to be updated very often. Until not too long ago, it had models you couldn't get anymore.

There is a PDF on the bmw.com site: http://www.bmw.com/com/en/owners/nav...ommended2.html
That one is supposed to be for other countries, and IMO is much more complete.

I bought a phone from that list.
