#1 of 110 Bluetooth Phone Problem
Mar 24, 2007 (8:18 am)
Has anyone else had a problem with the bluetooth phone connection in there 07 G35 Sedan? My phone connects up to the car fine, and works for incomming calls, but with out going calls, the other person cannot hear me at all (like it's muted). This problem is intermittant when the car is not running, but always occurs when I'm driving.

What kind of phone are you using?
Make, model, carrier?

Samsung i730 (windows mobile 5.0 PDA phone), Verizon is the carrier.
Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide.

I hang in a lot of the other G forums and I have not seen this as a problem.
I've looked into it too,as the last gen G did have some serious Bluetooth issues... but the 07 is solid.
I checked out Infiniti's site, and your phone is not listed on the supported phone list.
That may be your problem.
Supported Bluetooth Phone List
Do you have a friend's phone you can try?
You really need to try a supported phone before concluding the problem is with the car.
Hope this helps...

When I got my 07 G35, people could hear me but I couldn't hear them through the speakers. I ran the service update on the phone. I forget the number, but its * and then 3 numbers. Also, I turned the ringer on instead of vibrate, since the ringer volume was technically the "master volume". I don't know which one fixed it, but now everything works fine for me. My phone wasn't on the Infiniti bluetooth list.

What you most likely dialed was *228, which is the online programing number.
Choosing option #1 allows you to program new phones.
Option #2 updates the Roaming list in your phone. Keeping this up to date saves battery life and also avoids dropped calls, since the phone does not have to work overtime looking for roaming options as you tool down the road at Mach 1.
This should be updated about once every month or 2.
The call and update costs nothing.
It's highly unlikely that updating the roaming list fixed the phone issue you were talking about, since it has nothing to do with the Bluetooth connection.
I have no idea how adjusting the ringer type could help, but feel free to play with it and see if that helps.

I tried the service update, because neither Verizon nor LG could help. I adjusted the ringer volume just because the phone termed it as "master volume". I don't know why everything works now, but I'm glad it does.

I tried the service update and played with various volume adjustments and other settings -- no luck. It's very strange how it works sometimes and not others -- but the problem is always with people not being able to hear me when I dial out (not with an incomming call). Mine is the opposite problem as bobzg had. I can understand why possibly turning up the volume on his phone solved his problem.
I was in a Verizon Mega Store and spoke to one of their "Gurus" (that's actually what they call them). He had no idea. He suggested contacting Samsung, the maker of the phone.

I honestly think you're taking the wrong approach here.
You have friends, and these friends have cell phones.
You must know someone who has a Razr... every other guy on the streets has one now.
Find a phone which is on the Infiniti list and test it... should take all of 5 minutes.
If you get nothing but clear calls where people can hear you and you can hear them, then you know it's your phone.
Infiniti, just like other car companies, put out these phone lists for a reason.
It stinks that your phone is not on this list, but that just may be, and most likely is, your problem.
