Don't know if anyone as posted this already but in any case here it goes.

As I see it, the problem lies in the operating system not in a specific phone (the problems are common to different phones who share the same windows mobile system)
I don't know for other phones but for windows mobile based phones the best solution is to install the JETware extension software from JETware (see at: )

First, In my experience you have to first install the JETware software
Second, turn off the Hibernate/suspend mode in WM5 otherwise the phone will lose connection with any bluetooth module you may have ( haven't tested the WM6 yet, so don't know if you have to turn it off also)

with this you will achieve several things:

signal strength and battery status in the bluetooth panel and the ability to upload the contacts list to the car
