I have bluetooth in my 2006 LS 430. I use a Verizon Motorola RAZR V3c cell phone which works well with Lexus bluetooth with one exception---I am unable to upload cell phone address book to bluetooth system. Thus I must use cell phone for making calls though they go thru car bluetooth. Pls direct me to a cell phone, preferably with Verizon, that will allow address book to be uploaded to bluetooth system. Thanks.

Well, I can tell ya that a TREO 700 Won't do that either....Best bet would be to ask Lexus what they recommend, and decide if you want to go there.

I've been using a Treo 650, also with Verizon, for about 2 years now with my 2004 LS. I am able to upload from the 650 to the BT, but with some difficulty. I sometimes have to repeat the process several times before it gets it right. One thing to be careful with is if you already have many entries in the Nav BT directory and you want to add just a couple of more, do NOT upload the whole address book again. You'll get duplicate entries which is a pain to delete.

famwald, had the exact same problem with my '04 LS. Turned out to be the ECU for the door. Dealer kept it for 2 days.

Interesting, I was never able to get this done. It's actually hard to keep the 700 I now have even connected. It will adopt the car for a few minutes after you start the car, but after a little bit, if you don't use it, it breaks the bind and you have no connection anymore.... My 650 was better.

The 650 works extremely well(except for uploading). Everytime I get in the car it connects and stays connected. Love it! Just wish Lexus had their head screwed on straight and allowed me to manually enter phone numbers directly into the directory(when stopped of course!). That way I wouldn't have to fight the BT to receive all the bits correctly! What are they thinking???

You are correct - my 650 was far superior to my 700 and connecting and staying connected to my car.

I am considering purchasing a 2002 LS430. It seems that you can find them with 65-70k on the odo for under $24k. I need it for an occasional driver to take clients to dinner, to play golf, and for a couple long haul trips a year. All told, I doubt I will put more than 6k on it a year, and it will be in service for about 4 years. Does anyone have suggestions on specific issues to look for or things to avoid? I appreciate any feedback.

I had an 02, and the only thing I'd be concerned about is the seat. Make sure you can live with the driver's seat. They are rather flat and unsupportive in the extreme. If it doesn't bother you, go for it. They are just great - the best on the planet, IMO. Yes, I have another one, an 05 now, better seats.
