#91 of 130 Re: How to set up two phones via bluetooth? [agitatedant]
Jun 02, 2008 (7:41 am)
Hi there. When I bought my TCH in Oct. '08 I was told you could use two phones with the Blue Tooth. But I recently went to two different service centers, and both said it can only use one. BYW, I am also having difficulty with my Blue Tooth. When I first bought it, everyone heard me just fine and my voice commands went smoothly. Now people have difficulty hearing me, and I don't even bother with voice commands any more since the computer spits back ridiculous numbers to me.

Al (and David),
I'm having the same issue in my 2008 NAH with a Virgin Super Slice. I've done some digging and it appears it's a fatal flaw due to Virgin crippling the bluetooth capabilities on their phones. It appears to be a problem mainly with cars that have factory bluetooth setups. I have had success with my Super Slice and a Magellan 4040 Nav unit so it will work with bluetooth hands free devices, just not (some?) factory units.
It's a bit of a bummer because I just bought these two new phones about 6 months ago. We're going to give T-Mobile a shot since they use 'real' phones, most of which are listed on (for me) Nissan's website as being compatible. We're going to start with a Motorola V195 and see how it works. Nice thing is with T-Mobile is if you buy $100 in air time it's good for 1000 minutes and lasts for a year, so 10c per minute.
Anyway, good luck finding something that works in your new car.
#93 of 130 TCH pairing problems with LG vx8600
Jun 05, 2008 (5:36 am)
I have a LG VX8600 through Verizon. And I'm trying to pair it to my 09 TCH with no luck so far.
I've tried the pairing process dozens of times, with 2 mild successes (pair did not hold). I took it to the Dealer with no luck (my salesman was able to pair his Blackberry though). I called Verizon tech support, they wouldn't help (not one of their products). toyota.letstalk.com also was no help, all they wanted to do is go through the step by step process written in the manual.
The funny thing is that the both Letstalk and the Verizon sites say that this phone is supposed to be compatible.
Lastly, considering that I can upgrade my contract in November. Is there an accurate listing some where that has truly compatible phones?

For Toyota you can find your phone capabilities by going to "toyota.letstalk.com"
Most phones will not transfer the entire phone book however many will transfer one phone book entry at a time. You can also watch a video on your toyota at
I hope that this is useful.

Perhaps your system is faulty. I would have the dealer since it is under warranty check the system out and make sure that it pairs with A phone. Any. The LG 8600 is probably to new to be on the site but the LG 8500 says that it should pair just fine. My advice is exercise your warranty rights and make the dealer show you that it works.

On toyota.letstalk.com your phone is listed under palm and sprint. Have you tried calling their support number 1-866-875-3987?

you have to manually switch phones when there are two that you have entered into the system--it automatically searches for the one that you have selected...
I got a new LG Vue after we bought the TCH and had a little problem getting it connected initially--had to delete my other phone--
system for doing that is not intuitive--frustrating at time--
with both phones (mine and DH's) in the TCH memory--it goes for the one that was highlighted the last time--that is the default
if your husband's was used and you are riding solo--it won't automatically pick up your phone--it is waiting for his...
#98 of 130 cell phone disconnecting
Jun 25, 2008 (6:37 am)
I recently purchased a 2009 TCH. My Kyocera Strobe K612B automatically connects with ease, and probably 75% of the time it works fine. However, the other 25% of the time, when a call begins to come in it immediately disconnects my phone. Any suggestions?

I was finally able to pair my phone. It works fine after the pairing process. But if I shut down my TCH and leave the vehicle it no longer works. The Profile is still in the phone and the TCH's Bluetooth setup. But for some reason it wont detect each other.
The dealer had no ideas, and so have I. unless there's a major breakthrough in the near future (or I get a new phone) I'm probably going to ignore the hands-free.

Its not the cars bluetooth.The problem is in the phone.Make sure you have the bluetooth setting on always connect. I have 4 toyota and a new Lexus. I am a pro at this...plus working for Toyota for 20 years helps...I have paired that phone dozens of times..It will hold the programming. If your settings are set correct...Its the phone
