#140 of 211 ADDRESS BOOK PROBLEM
Feb 03, 2007 (11:10 am)
I purchased a 2007 M35 in July 2006. I received one of the first 2007s and have been very happy with the car. Since that time I have had a phone book memory purge 3 times. After the 2nd time, which happened last month, I took the car into the dealer. I was told that the phone I had was not on their authorized list and so they would take no action.
I felt this was an excuse as there would be no reason for any phone to clear out the address book in the car. I went home and research the authorized list and found my phone WAS on the Infinity authorized list. I proceeded to call the service manager who then reported the problem to Infinity. It again happened to me this week so I called again and was told Infinity is still working on the issue and that there are reports of this happening to others.
I am going to give them another week for a resolution but I feel I am getting stalled by Infinity. I would like to know if anyone else is having this issue or have heard of others having this issue.
Also how best should I push to get this issue resolved. My feelings are that the Service Manager at the dealership has his hands tied waiting for a response from the Infinity Tech

I have had several problems with my cell phone and bluetooth connection. I finally gave up which is what I think Infiniti hopes you will do. The always seem to take the easy way out. I can't stand my cheap car, or my Infinity dealer. Good luck with yours.

You have to do it one number at a time, and you only get (I think) 40-entries in the car's memory.

james27, 40 is okay with me but do you know how to actually execute the transfer from my phone to the M on the blackberry device?

Nope, found it buried in the menus. I have a Motorola phone. If I remember, I selected the entry, and send was a menu choice. You had to confirm acceptance in the car's menus. Check the Infiniti website on Bluetooth. There may be some additional info there. You can add a voice tag to each phone number, which is handy unless you are really moving and the road is rough - the background noise messes things up.

okay, thanks for your advice. I'll check the infiniti site. I have done voicetags - works pretty well. thanks again.
#147 of 211 Bluetooth compatibility
Mar 04, 2007 (8:16 am)
Which cell phones have had the best Bluetooth compatibility w/ the M35. I've had my M for two years and when I got it there was no phone fully compatible. I finally settled on the Motorola 815 which works well but doesn't transport the phonebook into the car's system and therefore works voice-activated only when I've hand-entered the numbers into the car's system. I tried a Palm Treo back then. I would LIKE to get the Motorola RAZR simply because of its lack of bulk but I'm not sure whether Verizon has that phone. Any advice is appreciated.

As an addendum, I've gotten some feedback that the battery life on the RAZR isn't sufficient to get through a full day unless you get the larger capacity battery and that eliminates the advantage gained by lack of bulk of the base RAZR. Comments?

I am a realtor in my M35 most of the day connected thru Bluetooth. I get multiple days on my standard RAZR battery. The easy/cheap solution for any cell phone is to have a car charger ready for those times when you forgot to charge your battery...see EBAY.
The RAZR works just like the other phones....your address book doesn't transfer to the car.
