: My Verizon BT phone works!! (Samsung)

I thought this was pretty exciting...

When I bought my car a few weeks ago, I was excited that the car and my phone both had bluetooth. So I ask the dealer what's up, how does it work and all that jazz and they give me a list of compatible phones. My phone wasn't on the list. So I figured hey I'm not gonna let that stop me from buying the car.

I love the car, drive it for a few weeks, and all is well. Then I get this though in my head. My phone is about as new as my car, so I gotta try and sync them and see if it works.. I have a Samsung SCH-A950. I tried it out last week and I couldn't get them to communicate. Then for some reason, I wanted to try again. I went into the back of my car and found the bt module and got the passkey. I turned on the bluetooth on my phone, searched for a signal, found the signal "BMWXXXXX" (where the X's are numbers), connected to that signal and entered the passkey into my phone. I didn't think it worked... A few minutes later my wife had to use my phone and BAM!! MY RADIO TURNED OFF AND WE HEARD THE PHONE RINGING THROUGH MY SPEAKERS!! I was so excited.

Everything is going well. My voice activated dialing works, and this morning I called my BMW service center using my navigation system.

I know some people are having problems with bt and stuff, so I would be happy to answer any questions that I can.

If you haven't noticed, the numbers in "BMWxxxxx" are the last five digits of your VIN. BTW, you didn't mention anything regarding the Samsung's phone book. Did it download into the BMW's BT onboard phone book?
