Good Lord! (He says with a humorous influxion)

Does no one search the forums to have these questions answered?

I probably have 10 threads here about BT compatibility - one only needs to do a search. I think I (along with about 100 others) have answered every possible question related to phones, pairing, hands-free, cradles (& instalation), service providers and weather diet coke tastes better.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of the "up tight" users who is annoyed by the post. I'm just trying to suggest ways to find the answers needed QUICKLY.

And, just to clarify;

While a small group of non-BMW listed phones may work in partial to 100% compatibility, the safest bet is to use a BMW 'recommended' phone. I use the Sony Ericcson T637 (not on the list but "T" models are) and it works FLAWLESSLY. Also use Treo 650 and it too integrates FLAWLESSLY with iDrive. Note: also use the BMW handset/cradle for T637 - a PERFECT match which allows me to keep the phone docked in car all the time.

If ANYONE would like info on BT compatibility please feel free to email me direct;

Cheers for now!
