Exclamation LG KG800 Chocolate/Samsung E900 or Z400 Bluetooth

Hi

I am thinking of buying one of the following Bluetooth phones, however i was wondering if anyone knows if they pair up with the X5.

1) LK KG800 aka LG Chocolate
2) Samsung Z400
3) Samsung E900

Also if anyone has any advise on which is a better phone or better still which one i should avoid it will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Sony Ericsson phones all the way.

And since your in England there is no reason not to get one, since they are easy to obtain over there..!

The thing though, is that I don't know if the newer SE models are supported by the BMW bluetooth profile. But I don't think those Samsung's are supported either...

Cool stuff. I didn't know the W810i worked.

I just got my K800i in the mail yesterday. Oh what a sweet phone it is ! Hmm, wonder if it works with the bluetooth kit. But I don't have a BMW Bluetooth kit, so I guess it doesn't matter that much lol

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I currently use a SE K700i and it works a treat. No SMS but everything else works fine.

I guess i might stick to the SE range. The wife wanted to get the LG chocolate for herself but i guess it wont be any good in the X5.

Anyone successfully use the LG Chocolate in the X5?

I upgraded from the K700i. If you think the 700 is good, wait until you get the 800 !

I hear what you are saying about the SE's however i just fancied a change. The W800i does look appealing however i wanted something alittle different.

Anyone know if the Samsung Z400 pairs ok?

Anyone also had any success with the LG chocolate KG810i?

Or the Samsung E900?

Thanks in advance

I Have both the E900 and chocolate.

only thing never paired them with my X. so not much help there.

For the functions I would have to say the chocolate much better than the
E900 the touch buttons on the E900 not as good as the Chocolate.
