tomsawyer said:I just purchased a Motorola v710 bluetooth phone to hook up in my '05 X5 4.4i. I read all directions and followed step by step.
Looks like the phone and the X5 paired because in the Motorola phone, under bluetooth settings, I see the BMW letters and the last 5 numbers of the vin.
I tried calling the number 10 times and the phone rang but the X5 didn't do anything. I tried to answer the phone with the speak button on the steering wheel but nothing happened. What am I doing wrong?
Also, I notice that the phone says "connected" to the BMW and sometimes says "disconnected" for a moment and then reconnects. What does this mean?
Appreciate all who answer. Thanks.

After I performed the software update my V710 constantly displays connected and disconnected.
When I make a call it doesn't function with the vehicle.
Terry Kennedy said:I had that even with the original V710 software. Note how vatkens says "This software makes the handset compatible with the BMW Assist Bluetooth system." No mention of the older ULF system. I'm about to cancel my V710 and Verizon service and go with Cingular - I tested a friend's RAZR V3 in my car and it worked perfectly.
Coffeeman said:There is currently a class action suit that was filed against Verizon, with regard to the V710, for false advertising. Verizon had Motorola disable the OPP & OBEX profiles on this phone to force users to transfer ringtones, pictures, etc, by using their pay per play services "Get it Now", and "Pix Service". Even if you get the V710 to pair with your X, the phonebook will NOT transfer, because this requires the OPP (Object Push Profile) to do this, which has been disabled.
