SE Z520a and BT/Assist

I've just upgraded my phone from a SE T637 to a SE Z520a (Cingular). I'm using the phone with the BT/Assist 84-10-6-963-798 (9.2005) TCU. All works great and no issues to report ... however ....

The Yellow Lamp on the NAV unit is always lit as soon as the phone is paired with the car. With the T637, I only noticed the yellow light to come on when the phone was using a non-cingular network. This would make sense as the NAV Manual states that the indicator lamps for phone mode :

YELLOW: Telephone is being routed through alternate network.

So I'm not sure why I get a yellow lamp lit as the Z520a is definitly using the cingular network ... ?

Could you maybe have an old AT&T sim card?

No, I'm using a new Cingular SIM card ....

Also FYI ... I tried a new SE Z525 phone from Cingular. Its exactly the same as the Z520a ... however its got the new PTT (Push to talk) radio thing on it. Although the phone looks physically identical, seems our friends at SE are up to their old tricks again with fiddling with the BT profile as when I paired the Z525 with the BMW BT/Assist TCU ...

1. No phonebook was transfered (even after waiting a good chunk of time, and having only a couple of entries in the phonebook)
2. After placing a call via the BMW the audio was routed only to the handset and not through the BMW system. I've experienced this same problem with the SE Walkman phones as well .... W600i and W810 ....

Its a real shame these new SE phones don't work with the new-ish BT/Assist systems ... !

I have Cingular as well and I have the lamp when I'm ON Cingular's system. When I roam the lamp goes out.
