I use the Camry's voice command feature to dial on my Sprint phone. Seems to work just fine--
#330 of 358 06 Acura MDX and Motorola PEBL
Jun 22, 2006 (10:31 am)
Pairing of my PEBL and MDX went very smoothly. The problem is, it doesn't look that I can call from my phone when I'm in the car. Do I have to use Bluetooth? I don't have any problems with incoming calls but when I try to place a call I run into all sorts of problems. The phone doesn't ring but I can't hang up either. Any advice?

I suspect that yes, you'd have to use Bluetooth to pair them up completely. Give it a shot. Check the instruction manual that came with the PEBL.
I set up a headset for someone that has a PEBL, the headset's default password was 0000, the PEBL found it right away, and it worked.
#332 of 358 Verizon Motorola E815 and Toyota?
Jun 25, 2006 (7:04 pm)
Has anyone been able to transfer his/her phonebook from a Verizon Motorola E815 to a Toyota or Lexus? We just took delivery of a '07 Camry; I am having no luck, would like to know it is possible. Anyone?

Does anyone know how to temporarily mute the bluetooth system in the 400H so that someone riding with me can't hear the other party?
#334 of 358 Uconnect & Call Waiting
Jun 30, 2006 (4:10 pm)
I have an '05 Grand Cherokee with Uconnect and a V3 Razr via Cingular. The problem: Whenever I am on the phone and a call comes in via call waiting, if I do not answer the 2nd call (let the call go to voicemail), when the 2nd caller disconnects, both calls disconnect. I called Uconnect and they said to disable call waiting because the Razr phone software is not compatible with Uconnect/Call waiting. I asked for a list of phones that works and he said to call the cell provider. I won't bore you with the rest of the not so pleasant conversation.
Has anyone ever heard of this? Specific phones not being full featured with Uconnect?
#335 of 358 Problem with Bluetooth in 07 Land Cruiser
Jul 07, 2006 (6:54 am)
I have been working for month's to get my dad's bluetooth to function correctly. I have gone to several dealerships and contacted Siemens to see what the problem is. The phone works fine until you try to send a call directly from the phone- the cars system never picks it up. My moms Razr however, picks it up after a few second overlay. Is there any way to fix this or to disable the phone function so he can dial while the car is moving?

We are having the same issues with a V3 Razr and our Volvo XC90 with Volvo For Life. Volvo has stated the exact same solution. Cingular is clueless. Have you come up with any other solutions/work arounds since you originally posted this note?
#337 of 358 2006 Audi A6 and Treo 700p [4ringsfan]
Sep 05, 2006 (8:29 pm)
Don't know about Sprint, but today I paired my Verizon Wireless Treo 650 via bluetooth with my 2005 Audi A6. Did it all from the phone. Went to set up devices, nearby devices, waited for Audi MMI to show up, selected it, entered the four digit code. I tried a few, since no one on earth can actually tell you what code to use. For me, the code 1234 unlocked it and paired it up. Still playing with how to sync and so forth, but if you're the kind of person who can learn by doing, that worked for me. So far, this post is the only place on the Internet where you can read how to pair the A6 with the TREO 650. I know 'cause I looked everywhere! Good luck.
With my 2006 Audi A6, there is a good explanation of setting up Bluetooth cellphones, starting on page 85 of the "Infortainment/MMI" manual -- including (top of page 86): "The Bluetooth PIN is 1234".
I just upgraded to Verizon Treo 700p (from 2+ year-old Treo 600). Here are steps I went through to "pair" the phone and the car:
Tapped "Bluetooth" on phone's "Favorite List" (shows up on phone's opening screen) but could also have gone through "Applications" to get to "Bluetooth".
Left name of device as it was (my initials) designated by Palm software when I downloaded old info from computer to new phone.
Left "visibility" set to "hidden" (that appears to have nothing to do with Audi being able to detect phone; it seems to only mean that other bluetoothers in the vicinity won't pick up my phone's presence).
Tapped "Setup Devices" and on screen which then appears I tapped "Hands-free Setup".
On "Add Device" screen (after a few seconds) the Audi appeared and I tapped it's name. ("Show pick list" and the "Nearby devices" might have had to be tapped first).
Entered same passkey (1234).
Car kept asking for "SIM Card," but phone had none. Gave up. Drive home.
Put in SIM Card I had at home. This might not have been necessary. I was making initial attempt in area where my cell phone is not at its best.
Next day, once I was in decent phone reception area, I turned on Treo 700p. I pressed Telephone button on Audi. Car MMI screen showed that the car system was picking up presence of "Verizon" phone.
First tried voice entry of my home phone (digit by digit) and successfully called home.
Didn't notice if "Phonebook" from Treo had downloaded to car and was a lighted-up selectable from "Memory" menu on car screen. Later, did notice it was and that it had my list of "Favorite" phone numbers. Selected one and called it and talked without problem. Received calls fine all day.
Noticed that I have to turn Treo on (you know, if you have one, it's sort of "on" but screen is blank. Turned it on, hit middle button to keep it on.
This seems critical. Treo, as you know, turns off, if not used. So, it was turned on and car showed "Phonebook" was lit up and available to be selected. But I didn't do anything and Treo turned off and car said it didn't find any phone. Turned Treo on, hit telephone button on car and again car and phone said hello.
Made a call. Now Treo stayed on because it was doing something (connecting with car bluetooth system).
#338 of 358 Motorola v160 and Es350 lexus
Oct 03, 2006 (3:43 pm)
Can anyone help me? I have the Leux es350 with navigation.I'm able to send and receive calls fine. I can't get the navigation system to give me the choice to not answer the call. It always answers on the first ring. I went into the bluetooth and phone settings,then screen and told it to not answer automatically. It ignores the setting and still answers it.
