Unfortunately, not all Bluetooth compatible phones will work (partially or fully) with BMW's Bluetooth systems. As such, “Bluetooth” is an ambiguous term and insufficient to ensure compatibility. That is unfortunate, since "Bluetooth" is all that is typically included in the phone's description.

My experience is a good example: my do-everything SonyEricsson P900 does not work with my Bluetooth-capable car (the SonyEricsson P900 lacks a "handsfree profile" required to work with the BMW implementation of integration of cell phone and car). Successful 6 Series Bluetoth retrofit, but phone incompatible

Even if you have a "BT-compatible" phone with the BT "handsfree profile," there are other features that may or may not work properly. For example, the phone should automatically share its phone book with the car to enable a set of nice features: based on your phone's address book: Calling Name display and

BMW Customer Assistance has a short list of compatible phones (SE T68i, SE T610, SE T630, Motorola V600). A more extensive compatibility list is here:

Glenmal, are you sure? When I tested the Moto mobiles, they did not support SMS functionality. No one else reported that this is supported either.

Samsung A920

I have a 2007 550I. The Samsung A920 works great! No problems at all. The phone book syncs in seconds and the voice dial is perfect. I tried almost every phone in the car and wanted to stay with sprint pcs.

Those who use the V710, what software version do your phones have? According to the BMW site, only the one with 1.4 would work. How about the newest version 02.03?

I think SMS is only supported with iDrive, so if one has a non-iDrive vehicle, then to him it is fully functional.

Dropcall

I JUST BOUGHT A BRAND NEW 550I 6 speed, great car. I was very excited to use the Bluetooth feature and then ran into HELL. I asm using a Motorola Razor cingular phone.

The phone syncs up fine most of the time. Address book loads up fast.
BUT, every time I am on a call and another one comes in (call waiting), and I decide not to answer it, Both calls are dropped instantly after the second call stops beeping. It happens every time and is very frustrating. Right now I have turned my call waiting feature off permanently on the Razor which defeats the purpose of call waiting. I saw that other people have this problem on other forums. I am using cingular as the carrier. Anyone have a fix or update answer for this? I hope so!!!

I also sync my phone to an apple mac using isync. I am now the proud owner of two complete phone books on my phone, one regular one and one that strarts again indented e.g. with the hyphon.
-Bob Smith
-Frank blob
The whole phone book is there indented followed by the regular phone book that follows, Both phone books show up on the phone and the car bluetooth screen. Every time the phone is paired up and I am in the car the phone asks me to accept or deny the connection, there is no automatic link without my physical activation. It gets very frustrating finding the phone and then linking them manually every time.

Now the garage door opener, that is a joke, This car refuses to accept my mirror button command, my wifes acura works like a dream.
Next I will be sharing some great information about some phone book tricks as soon as I get the bugs out of the BMW system.
thanks in advance for any help with this!!!

Samsung i730 works with 2007 550

Phone model: Samsung i730 - Verizon (upgraded to Windows Mobile 5)
Car model: 2007 550
[x] ability to make/receive calls
[x] phone book automatically synches to car
[ Haven't tried ] dial by name (without verbal training of system)
[ x ] calling name display (using adddress book)
[ Haven't tried ] ability to send/receive SMS

I am very pleased to report that the Samsung i730 works with my new car. I was frankly very surprised. It even uploads ALL of my contact entries and does it very quickly (around 300 names and numbers). BMW has greatly improved the pairing process compared to my 2005 X3. It is simple, fast, and you don't need to remember a passkey (you simply enter a number of your choosing on both the car and the phone).

This phone now integrates as seamlessly as any of the "officially approved" phones. I don't know if BMW changed something for 2007 or the Windows Mobile 5 upgrade helped.

If you use this combination, be sure to select both the "Hands-Free" and "OBEX Push" Bluetooth services on the phone when you pair it with the car. If you do not choose "OBEX Push", the phone book from the phone will not upload to the car.

Palm Treo 700W Bluetooth Interface w/2004 BMW 545i

I have a 2004 BMW 545i that had a integrated Motorola V60 cellphone that worked with the car in hands-free mode. I recently got the the BMW BTUM module which fits into the cradle and attempted to get it to pair up with my Palm Treo 700W. No luck. The BMW dealer says the phone's bluetooth protocol is not compatible. Can anyone confirm or refute this? Any options to get the Treo to work with this car?

My Update

I Spoke to Cingular, then took the car to BMW where I received a phone Bluetooth update leaflet on BMW letterhead. It explained that the BMW Bluetooth does not support call waiting at any time with a Razor phone.
If you get another call while on your phone and ignore it, both calls will end after the waiting calls ends. The only way around this issue is to answer the other call using your actual phone, then after, resume the other call. In this instance 99% of the time the other call will have dropped. Other option is to turn off call waiting on the Razor altogether.

This is a MAJOR FLAW. I am shocked that no one else has this issue or has commented on this on the forum. I have the correct firmware on the phone. I am now dealing with Motorola directly and their service department. I am dealing with the head technician. They have identified the flaw. They also realize that the incoming waiting call does not show up on the Bimmer screen. They are working on a fix to make the Razor fully functional with Bluetooth. If anyone wants to see the paperwork from BMW I can fax it to them. The Razor is flawed and NON fully functional, and to be honest is a major pain in the behind every day for me. I have a brand new 550i 6 speed.

I have a T-Mobile Rzor and calls do not get dropped when a second call comes in. I just hear my phone notify me that second call is coming in. That second call can only be answered through the phone keys.

IIRC it has also been mentioned that the second call not showing up on your NAV screen is not a BMW issue but a BT standards issue. There appears to be no method by which any BT phone can notify the car of a second incoming call.

T-Mobile is the only vendor (I think) that has not tweeked with the BT settings that meet BT standards on their phones. Some vendors have neutered the BT on the phones they offer so that you cannot download pictures via BT directly into your computer, only through their picture sending service for which they charge a fee. Who knows what else they have messed up.

Exclamation All Verizon RAZER BMW Bluetooth functions work, all but the charger

All Verizon RAZER BMW Bluetooth functions work, all but the charger with cradle due to mine was built in 3-04. I WAS TOLD I NEEDED A 9-04 an after build date to power up my cradle charger! (Which makes no sense all it need is power tan to it to make it charge my phone)...so I am using the cig. outlet with Motorola RAZR car charger in rear of console instead to charge my RAZR cell! (Such unsightly in a e60 BMW to see black running and hanging wires to charge our cell phones! Next time I will buy an USA car, at least we expect such solutions and answers with our Corvettes, etc. LOL)

Sincerely,

Jonathon, see below

While Bluetooth® wireless technology is a global standard, there are a variety of profiles that manufacturers can choose to implement in their Bluetooth devices. In certain cases, the BMW hands-free system and the Bluetooth mobile phone do not share the necessary profiles to work together as a hands-free system. For this reason, not all available Bluetooth phones are compatible with the BMW hands-free system. Below you will find a list of mobile phones1 that have passed compatibility testing with the BMW hands-free system.

Could you please publish a scan of this paperwork. I will also send you a PM with my fax number if faxing is easier. Thanks.

Phone book transfer didn't work properly. I'd add contacts to the Q and they didn't show up in iDrive. Others that transferred initially, didn't show up the next day, even though they were still in the phone. Also had problems with some contact phone numbers being garbled in iDrive.

I wasn't impressed with the Q's performance. It locked up several times, the battery meter didn't work (always showed full), menu navigation--and just about every function--is very slow, to name a few. Call sound quality was excellent, though.

I returned it after getting a replacement and having similar issues. Phone book transfer didn't work properly in either one. I don't think any smartphone BT is fully compatible with the BMW BT.

(Such unsightly in a e60 BMW to see black running and hanging wires to charge our cell phones! Next time I will buy an USA car, at least we expect such solutions and answers with our Corvettes, etc. LOL)

Sincerely,
A cleaner solution would be to get the power adapter that plugs into the glove box flash light outlet, that you can plug the Moto car charger into, then it would be in the glove box and out of sight.

Cingular 2125 smart phone

Pairs up and works fine in both our 2006 550 and our 2006 X5. I haven't been able to figure out the SMS / MMS yet, but then the phone's freaking owner's manual is 148 pages long! Only anomaly is that the I Drive screen doesn't show the signal strength bars. No biggie.

BTW really, really sweet phone!

No Dropcalls

I am in NJ northern area, so you are telling me you have no drop call issues on call waiting when you do not pick up the second call, or if you do you do not lose the first call? thanks

Its Official

The only compatible phone that works with the BMW 5,6,7 series and does not DROP CALLS is the Motorola 550 which is discontinued, it will not allow call waiting ,no phone can anywhere anytime deal with BT call waiting without dropping, This phone will just not drop the call.
