#483 of 533 Call transfer problems
Dec 27, 2009 (8:24 am)
I bought a 2010 Toyota Camry July 2009. I have AT&T cellular service and a samsung phone. Four times the car system has sent my phone into "call transfer" at which the person calling in get three ring and nothing. I get no sound, no ringing and it mutes my phone. I had my phone checked and its fine. The first three times I reinstalled the phone and it worked again for a while. This last time over a week ago nothing seems to work. Reading past messsges on "call transfer" problems it appears its a problem with the car and or the navigation system as far back as 2007. Not cool. Has anyone got around this issue?
#484 of 533 Bluetooth/iPhone pairing problem
Jan 08, 2010 (7:09 am)
I am very frustrated with the Bluetooth quality and pairing, and wanted to see if anyone knows of a solution (my communication system has already been replaced once). I have an iPhone 3G. When the Camry pairs with the iPhone, the quality I get coming in in exemplary; however, no one can hear me! They say I sound echo-y, or I cut in and out. My friends and family have begged me to stop using it.
That was an easy decision, since the Camry will not stay paired with the iPhone! Sometimes it loses its connection after I turn the car off the first time, sometimes it takes a couple of times . . . but it has never stayed paired. I used to have a Razor phone, and did not have the pairing issue previously (although I had the same quality issues).
Does anyone know of any solutions to the outgoing sound quality issues on the Camry phone system, and/or know how to keep an iPhone paired?
Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks.

Interesting....I have been considering the boothtooth for my Camry so that I can use my ipod to hear music. Sounds like the Bluetooth is not worth the hassle. I don't really care to use it for handsfree calling, so I'm going to go with the thing that plugs into the ipod & you hear the music through a radio station.
Good luck with your problem....
From what I have been reading on this website, sounds like their system is not all they claim it is.

Went to the dealer this week. He said its not unusual for the car to drop calls every other week. With a new phone every third week. Unbelievable. His solution reinstall the phone when this happens. I bought a 2010 model the highest end Camry and it can't keep my phone paired for a week. Now its down to days. It wasn't the option that sold me on the car but its the option that is making me hate my new car. Its a real pain completely disconnecting and reinstalling every other day and still that doesn't always work. I gave up. Any one buying a Camry with the blue tooth in the car you might as well consider it NOT a selling point. Highly disappointing. ">

The echo may be caused by you turning up the iphone's blue-tooth volume too high. *When you are connected via bluetooth* try turning it down a bit. If it isn't coming out of the speakers loudly enough, try turning it up via the Camry's display. This helped me avoid the echo.
However, I still think the quality is poor -- just tolerable with the echo problem solved.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will try that and see if it helps the echo (when it stays paired).
#489 of 533 Trouble Pairing Phone & Audio Player
Jan 27, 2010 (8:04 pm)
I have 2010 Camry w/Bluetooth (non-JBL). When I try to connect phone the sytem tells me that to pair my phone it must disconnect my paired audio player and that I may need to re-connect it...which i do...however when I go to re-connect the audio player the sytem tells me it must disconnect my paired phone and I may need to re-connect it which I do...so I have been unable to pair both...only one or the other.
#490 of 533 Phone Compatibility

Can someone explain briefly in layman's terms WHY the car's bluetooth is only compatible with a limited number of phones?

Toyota has known about this for a long time. I have a 2007 XLE that i finally gave up using the blue tooth on. Extreme echos, incompatibility with a variety of phones and no support from the Toyota dealerships. They basically told me that was rather normal to have those kind of problems and I shouldn't expect great sound. They offered no solutions. If anyone is considering a Toyota, you should definitely skip the bluetooth and install it after market.
The potential gas pedal problem was also my floor mats.
Do you see a pattern?

I am having this same issue with my BB 8330. I spent about an hour with a product specialist a few weeks ago trying to pair both and was told they usually have no problems and to contact Verizon who is my wireless carrier. I called them and they said they could not help as they did not know much about the cars system, but to update to the newest version of the software and see if that helped. It has not. I tried to use Pandora through the Aux plug, but it will not allow the phone to use bluetooth and play through the aux plug in the car and the USB just gives me an error.
