#43 of 62 Verizon Phone for a 3 series
Apr 06, 2008 (1:58 am)
Anyone try to pair one of the new Verizon phones?
I'm looking at the Pearl and wondering if anyone got it working?
My girlfriend was in a 335 and told me she got her Q' working and my friend got his RAZR working. I'm planning on buying a new phone and don't like the Voyager as it's so big as I like small phones.
I also have a Cingular phone (Samsung Blackjack) unlocked running T-mobile. I wonder if it will work. Last time I was at the dealer the damn phone wouldn't turn on its bluetooth! I use this for work so I would like it to work as well.
#44 of 62 Aftermarket Bluetooth

I'm taking delivery of my 328i next week. I skipped the Premium, as I prefer the 'ette seats for durability. I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck with adding an aftermarket bluetooth set-up. The steering wheel controls are already in place.

If you're getting a new 328, it's prewired for BMW bluetooth. You just have to buy the module, microphone and bracket, get it installed, then take the car to the BMW dealership so the it can be "activated/enabled."
It's still expensive. It will probably be at least $800 total for all parts and shipping and the dealer may or may not activate it for free. It's cheaper than the premium package, but since you were factory ordering, you could have ordered the bluetooth/BMW Assist package for $750. The bluetooth kit below doesn't include BMW Assist.
The car is also prewired for BMW Assist, but then you will need to add a few hundred more in parts and more labor to install.
Or for about $100 you could get this:

Okay everyone, the black jack will load the address book. Not sure if it's because it's a smartphone? The bluetooth works, but not as cool as with some other phones as no address book. Still need to buy a new phone that works with Verizon! So at least my non-business phone will work in my car.

Just got my 08 335i convertible--
I use verizon service and it appears I cannot have a smartphone that pairs with the 335 and gets my slingbox (remote cable TV thru internet).
anybody pair a Mot Q9m -a smartphone that does get internet in a 335?
Or, has anybody paired a Blackberry smartphone thru Verizon

Oops. I meant that my Blackjack would not load the address book.
Also I'm thinking about a new smartphone that works. Want the blackberry but it's not on the list. So need to find someone with one so I can see if it works. Otherwise it's back to another razr that I know does work.

There is a website wireless4bmw.com that lists the compatible phones for BMW. Also, please be aware that the new Razor from AT&T has some software issues. It will pair and work until you shut the car off and then it will pick up and drop the pairing constantly or wont automatically pair at all.
#50 of 62 smartphone Outlook and max addresses
Jun 18, 2008 (10:35 am)
Has anyone used a smart phone and gotten their "outlook" addresses to sync up? Or just their phone addresses?
Also, I see on my razr with sw 1.0F.03 I don't get all my contacts. Might be that I have too many and might be over the limit of allowable for the addresss book. I need to check that one out.

I have. I have the Samsung ACE and it's NOT on the list of compatible phones, but I paired it up and dumped all of my Outlook Contacts successfully - works great.

Not so at all in my experience.
