#466 of 534 Re: Bluetooth and the new (2007) Camry [fsowirles]

I have a 2008 Toyota Camry with navigation system and a blackberry tour with Verizon wireless. I was able to use my bluetooth with no problem for awhile now, but it hasn't been working for almost two weeks now.
When someone calls, it shows on the screen that it's connected, but I don't hear anyone on the other line. I had to transfer the call to my handset in order for me to hear the person. I tried unpairing/pairing my phone a couple times, and reset the bluetooth (in my car) to its default setting. And, when I pair my blackberry to the car, it would show that it successfully paired, but when I try to make a call through my car or vise versa, it doesn't connect. It seemed to have a mind of its own.
I paired another blackberry (with Sprint) and an i-phone (with AT&T), and they all seemed to work. Toyota customer care tells me that it had something to do with Verizon software. So, I called Verizon technical support and they're telling me that it's the Toyota bluetooth software that needs to be fixed. I talked to my dealer, but they're not able to help either. I was hoping you could shed some light to this. Please help!!

Since you have two other mfg's which work, personally I'd be focusing on the Verizon blackberry side of this. Can you get the Verizon BB to pair with an ear bud?

I have a 2008 Camry Hybrid with navigation system, and I am having the same problem. How were you able to have the dealership replace it?

Sorry, it took me awhile to reply back. I had to buy a bluetooth ear bud. Yes, I was able to pair my blackberry with the ear bud. Any other thoughts?

I have a 2007 Camry Hybrid. I do not have a navigation system. My Bluetooth worked for 6 months. After six months, I can hear the caller but they cannot hear me. It is a random problem. I am using a LG Shine Black Phone with AT&T. The Toyota National Case Manager told me today that most phones are not 100% compatible with their Bluetooth. She gave me two phone models for the AT&T Service that are 100% compatible. Sounds to me the problem is Toyota's Bluetooth. And I thought GM Played the Blame Game! Anyone else have any suggestions? I have paired, repaired etc. 5 times and used a different phone model.

Don't do it. Their Bluetooth does not work well. I am going to use the Bluetooth through my Portable Magellan GPS. Cheaper and It might just work.
#473 of 534 Bluetooth Lag in camry SE 09

I got a bluetooth connection on my camry se 09 with a palm treo 750 and before that with a motorola razor and a blackberry curve and with all of them my phone conversations have like a 2 seconds lag before the other person hears what I said. Any Ideas? Thanks

I had the same problem w my treo (09 camry hybrid) . I never found a solution for the awkward lag. I now have an iphone 3g & it is much better. My only complaint is that the person i am talking to will occasionally complain that I am not loud enough. I am investigating an aftermarket product that might boost the microphone (I have no idea if this product exists yet Let me know if anyone has found a good add on to improve the sound quality and/or that allows for dialing while on bluetooth (dial by number by speaking the number is a joke) thanks

I've been using my Verizon blackberry successfully for several months. Recently, I receive a No Name message on the radio display - although the blackberry is connected and the radio stops playing. This issue comes and goes. I inadvertently hit the hang up key on the steering wheel which left the device connected and activated the radio again. Hopefully this resolves the issue. Anyone else experienced this?
