I have a 2004 bmw 745i, the car came with a motorola v60 phone, however i can't find a carrier that still provides service for that phone. i called at&t, they said they don't carry service for CDMA phones. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT CARRIER STILL GIVES SERVICE TO THAT PHONE, SO THAT I CAN START USING IT IN MY CAR!!!!!

If it is a CDMA, it would be Verizon.

Verizon or Alltel provide CDMA.

And the only major ones who have EVER provided CDMA in recent years if I am not mistaken. AT&T was TDMA before going GSM and becoming nothing more than a color change on Cingular's logo.

They should still serve a V60. The age of the phone doesn't matter all that much, espicially since a V60 really isn't that old of a phone. I bought a V60S (with built in speaker phone) little over a year ago, and I noticed that they still sell a version of the V60, the V60P (with push to talk like NEXTEL).

Can't recall if it was TDMA or CDMA, but I know for sure it's not GSA, which is what Cingular does now.

As long as its a CDMA V60 they will support it.

I am running a V60 on Verizon that I recently switched from Alltel.

You don't use this phone with your BMW Bluetooth, right?

No, the V60 is not BT compatible. Then again neither is my car.

I didn't think it was, but I guess the 7 series cars came with that phone at one time and had a module of some kind to make it hands free. I went to Radio Shack today to see if I could upgrade my V60s to a V710. I can't until December (with discount) but he tried to sell me some kind of bluetooth adaptor that plugs into non-bluetooth Moto phones. He swore up and down it would work with the BMW, but that the phonebook would not transfer. This adapter also supposedly worked with hands-free as well and handsets. I did not but it ($39.99) because without the phonebook transfer, what is the use? I mean the phone has a speakerphone built in so I cannot see any advantage in it unless I am missing something,.

You made the correct decision by not buying the Motorola BT adapter for the V60. The adapter is designed to be used with BT headsets, not handsfree devices. It can only be pairied with BT devices with a passcode of "0000" or "1234." The BMW passcode is specific to the car and there is no way to imput that code using this adapter.

Hope this helps....JL

The only telephones BMW has left to fit your 745 are Verizon, Sprint, and a GSM good for T-Mobile; very expensive though. :p

VERY helpful, thanks. I was considering bidding on one on eBay, but if it won't work at all, then I guess I won't. Thanks again...
