I have sidelined my iPaq because it would not work with my BMW. I now have a Motorola RAZR. It works great.

In fact, I only have one complaint about the Motorola. When I use the car to call someone, and they do not pick up.... the car hangs up before the voicemail comes on for you to leave a message. I don't know why.
That very thing happens to me...hangs up before voicemail picks up. I have the SE T637, which leads me to believe the problem is the BT module???? I have a 2005 X5.

In any event, it only happens when calling another cell phone, seems to work when I call someone's land line and leave a message.
