More bluetooth issues - connects and then disconnects

Hi,

1) I might be doing something wrong here, but i just bought an old Nokia 6300 that fits the cradle in my X3.. i connected through Bluetooth, and the phone found the BMWxxxx - I connected and entered the pin code.. it said "connected" .. but after a few seconds the phone was disconnected once Again :-(

Does anyone know how to fix this issue ??

2) - It seems that the bluetooth in the car Works :-) (apart from the problem mentioned above).. but i have to make my phone search for audio equipment .. but how about an android phone? .. on that device you cant search for bluetooth audio devices .. or can you??

Thanks a lot.

Regards
Morten

1) Do a power cycle on the phone and the car.

2) Use the phone's menu and set the car handsfree to CONNECT AUTOMATICALLY

You can by Snap Ins that fit more modern phones including iPhone 5 but you may beed a new (wider) eject box for wider phones including iPhone.

Go the left rear cubby by the trunk, punch the button, pull out the side piece

Inspect the Bluetooth unit for moisture. On my 2006, the rear sunroof drains plugged, flooding the unit and killed it.

Its possible to clean the drains with 1/4 inch stiff nylon tubing. I took pictures of this process but can't post since Im a NooB

The connect/disconnect immediately pairing thing happens on mine too and it resolved after a sleep cycle.
