Yes. The manual actually does show the language correction. It cycles through English, Spanish and Canadian French. I still don't know why I lost the phones, but I'm convinced it was something I did wrong.

When I place a call using the bluetooth, I can barely hear the voice of the person through the speaker when they answer. However, when I call that same person using my cell phone, they come through loud and clear through the same speaker. This situation occurs for everyone I call using the bluetooth system only.
I have checked the Blueconnect pairing link and my phone is included on their list. I use a Pantech C520 cell phone.
Is anyone else having this problem? If so, how did you resolve?
#22 of 220 2011 HYUNDAI SONATA PHONE PROBLEM
Sep 08, 2010 (7:52 pm)
Just purchase a 2011 Sonata and I have a Samsung Cell Phone. The phone pairs, I can make calls and receive calls. My problem is that there always is an incoming call that can never be answered and rings constantly. Display says Incoming call and keeps ringing until I disconnect bluetooth from Sonata. Anyone else having the same problem or a solution?

There is a separate volume setting in the Bluetooth setup, turn it up some and you'll be fine. I had this issue and this was the solution...

I have a Blackberry 9630 Tour on Verizon Wireless. Everything pairs beautifully until after I shut the car off and turn it back on again. Then my phone can't read the Bluetooth from the Sonata and a woman's voice from the Sonata repeats over and over again "Pairing failed, pairing failed, pairing failed."
According to the Hyundai web site where they have a Bluetooth compatibility chart, this model of Tour is listed as "passed" but as a Sprint phone, not Verizon Wireless. You would think they are the same thing to pass the test?
These problems are causing me nothing but headaches.

I had the same "pairing failed" issue with my BB 8900 (ATT). The dealer installed a new audio system unit and now my cell works perfectly....

Purchased my 2011 Sonota last night. Love everything about it, except.... isn't there always something.... The voice recognition leaves something to be desired. Is there a way to "train" the recognition? Haven't found anything in "the book."
Thanks for the help.

Contacted Hyundai, who passed me on the "Blue Connect".
The answer... There's nothing to be done. It is not adjustable, nor trainable. Their answer? "Have you tried to change your contact's name to something the device will recognise?"

Same issue. My Samsung Alias2 will also pair, but thinks there is always an incoming call that cannot be answered.
I contacted Samsung, and they said it is not their problem and there are no plans to update the Alias2 firmware. Hyundai just says to refer to the Bluetooth phone compatibility list. It shows that the Alias1 is compatible, but makes no reference to the Alias2 (which does not seem to work.)
Ultimately, I gave up and bought a TracFone Motorola W376g for $20 so I can use the Bluetooth in the car. Pairs up perfectly. Only feature that does not work is downloading the phone's phonebook to the system...I got around that by simply manually loading a phonebook myself into the Sonata.
Unfortunately I have 14 months left on the contract the Samsung phone is on. Not eligible for a phone upgrade for another 8 months. Might just pay the $125 to terminate the contract, instead of spending the $1100 over the next 14 months to finish the contract. I can live without mobile web (which is glitchy on the Alias2) and sending text messages (I have one friend that sends texts regularly...I will just tell them I no longer have text ability.)
One would think that any Bluetooth phone would be able to pair up, and send and receive calls with no issues. Looks like the Bluetooth "standard" really isn't much of a standard.

It seems that the "bluetooth" associated with the navagation system is designed by another company. IT IS trainable. Go figure.
I'm have success by changing the names in my phone from first name, last name... to just last name. My wife was the oddest.... "pam" kept bringing up "Help". Got around that by renaming her, "wife".
Not sure I understand, "manually loading a phonebook". What do you mean?
