Verizon's HTC Ozone bluetooth compatible?

My company is offering us new smartphones. Unfortunately our only option is HTC Ozone through Verizon. My current phone is a Palm Treo, while not 100% compatible (no phonebook), I can still make/receive calls with it in my 05 X3

Does anybody know if this phone will work with my vehicle? Trying to decide whether to keep the Treo or get the HTC.

Thanks

Seeing that no one has responded, I am assuming that no one has tried this model yet with X3. I would recommend delaying the phone for a day or two if possible and try connecting your colleague's phone to X3, if it works go for it, if it does not then you know what to do.

I have no experience with your particular question. However - regarding your phonebook not downloading with your current phone - it could be because of the entries Verizon put in their phones by default that start with a special character (i.e #).

My current Motorola / Verizon phone worked fine - but no address book download until I deleted the Verizon entries beginning with special characters.
