Page 123 of the 2006 Lexus Nav system manual explains how to do this. The problem is that it says you can transfer the address BOOK, but with my Moto RAZR I can only transfer one phone number at a time.

Thanks for the reply. That is exactly what I found, I had no problem bonding my Moto RAZR with the car but I had to transfer one phone number at a time which is a tedious process. I also have a BMW 530xi, which automatically bonded and transfered the whole phone directory which took less than 2 minutes.
#42 of 79 Motorola SLVR compatibility
Aug 15, 2006 (6:37 pm)
Having learned from this forum that you can't transfer phone numbers from a Verizon phone to the embedded Bluetooth, I switched to Cingular and traded my Razr V3c for a SLVR L6. The SLVR L6 was not listed in the Lexus Bluetooth compatibility chart but when I called Lexus, the person I spoke with said that one of the people who worked in the department had a new SLVR phone and it worked fine. I also called Motorola beforehand to ask if there was any technical difference between the Razr and the SLVR and was told by Motorola they were the same. Problem is, when I place a call in my car and dial from the handset (can't use the Lexus touchpad when you're moving...)the call connects several seconds before you can hear the party through the handsfree speaker or they can here you. Unless the party is patient, it often results in them hanging up on you. After several calls and emails to Motorola support plus a letter to Motorola customer relations that went unanswered, I finally took the phone to a 3rd level Motorola service center in town. The technician told me right away that this was a problem with the SLVR L6 and L7 that had something to do with the Bluetooth antenna in the Lexus, BMW, and one other luxury car. Apparently whomever I talked to at Motorola before I bought the phone was wrong when they said that the Razr and the SLVR were the same phone. Unless someone's figured out a way to dial out on the navi touchpad while you're moving, I guess I'm stuck with the problem until Motorola addresses it (or not).
#43 of 79 BlueTooth problem
Sep 05, 2005 (9:38 pm)
I have tremendous difficulty with Nextel-605 and the Rx400h, operation wise. The car just would not let me answer calls unless I am at a red light. And when the phone rings, I just can't stop quickly enough to answer it before it goes to voice mail.
Does anyone know of a way to override this restriction????
Oddly enough, it lets me make calls while the vehicle is rolling, provided that I store the number in 1-touch mode.

All 17 one touch numbers can be dialed at any time after they are stored in the system. The only other way to dial out while driving is through your cell phone touchpad.

Do you otherwise enjoy the Nextel bluetooth technology? I am considering upgrading my Nextel phone and would like the input.

I think BlueTooth is a great technology in vehicles. It's just that the Nextel ring is not long enough to stop the car and answer the call. By the time I stop, it'd stop ringing. RX400h software prevents me to answer (even one touch answer) while driving.
Downloading your phone book is great.
You may want to thorough check out the phone's functionality with bluetooth BEFORE you commit to it. Is there a way to do that??

Your kidding right. What good is a hands free bluetooth telephone, if you can't use it while driving. If i have to pull over to use it, it would be easier to just put the phone up to my ear. Seems like Lexus is creating more danger instead of less.

Hopefully all the states will make it illegal to use your cell phone while driving, period. Where I work if British Petroleum security catch you driving and talking on your cell phone you lose your right to drive on oil field roads. If you have a phone call you pull to the side of the road and talk. Cell phone caused accidents have surpassed driving while intoxicated accidents.

You can use the phone while you are driving you just can't dial numbers unless you are going under about 2 MPH or stopped. You can, however, enter up to 17 numbers as 1-touch numbers and dial those while driving. One of these numbers is always the last number you dialed. You can certainly answer calls while driving and since all you have to do is push a button on the steering wheel to do this, it is quite easy. I love the blue tooth feature of this car. I find the sound quite good and no one has complained about it on the other end.
It would be even better if you could voice dial through the car, but if you can, I haven't figured out how.
I do think driving while holding the phone up to your ear is quite dangerous, but I can't see how using the speaker is anymore dangerous than talking to a passenger, especially if you are the kind of driver who looks at the passenger when you talk.
