Motorola vs. Nokia compatibility....

Just to give some background, I have a brand new 2006 X5 with the BMW Assist/Bluetooth package.

I currently have a Nokia 9300, and basically it gives me the same functions that a bluetooth headset would. No address book, etc.

I was thinking of changing to a smaller phone for the summer (the Nokia 9300 is a pain to carry around), so I was looking at the Motorola L2. It basically has the same software & operating system as the SLVR L7, the RAZR, and all the V-series Motorolas.

I was wondering what functions I would gain over what I currently have with the Nokia. I'm guessing it would upload the address book and allow me to browse all my phone numbers on the nav screen. But what other features?

Would it upload all numbers (home, work, mobile) or just one number for each contact? Would I be able to see how many bars of signal I have? Would I be able to view incoming text messages? Any other features?

I have a SLVR L6 which replaced my RAZR that Motorola bought back for major software issues (a Month after I bought it), the SLVR just got back from the shop because it's screen cracked when I accidentally dropped it on the ground. I've had LG's for a long time since before this I was with Verizon and I miss the LG's reliability and phone layout, the SLVR is so/so sometimes it is slow to do functions, other times fast, same with the RAZR, I would recommend a Nokia based on personal experience and the fact my cell phone guy made the comment to me when I asked about my phone

Go to Sony Ericsson, blows both out of the water...

Their phones are a bit tricky to find in the U.S., but in my experience the best you can get...

i had a slvr L7 (through cingular) which worked perfectly with my X3. i don't have nav, but i was able to browse my phone book on the stereo screen (all numbers for every entry). and the screen also gives me caller ID when i'm receiving a call (if it's in my phone book, i see the name, if it's another number, i see the number itself). i didn't see any incoming text messages.

i've since switched to a blackberry 8700c - this also works perfectly with my X3...

Thanks for the info. Just to be clear, I'm pretty sure I'm still going to keep my Nokia 9300 for those days when I know I'm going to need the extra functions it provides -- it's like using a mini-laptop. But I figured as long as I was going to get a smaller less functional phone, I would get one that is fully functional with the X5. The L2 seemed nice because of the size. Also, it has Cingular's "Mobile Email" client built in that allows for push email from AOL, Yahoo, or MSN Hotmail.
