Apetrov1x5,
The instructions I found was not for Nokia bluetooth. The software is for the Nokia phones to the Parrot Bluetooth and the Audi vehicle bluetooth systems. Would you have the BMW bluetooth in your car? Would you mind testing this for me? I need a new phone and want to get a Nokia but I don't know if I should invest in the BMW bluetooth if it will not work with current phones.

Thanks!

Hi All,

This should work for any symbian phone, no SMS but thats no biggy

Just bought a Nokia n95 and I paired it to my Gen3 ULF last night and transfered the phonebook.

Here's how to get the phone book across. (its a bit fiddly but works)

If you have already paired the phone (n95), then delete the paring on the phone.

Start the paring process again;

Press and hold the pair button,
Turn on ignition (stage 1),
Wait 3 seconds, release pair button,
ULF goes to paring mode,
Search and find ULF,
Select and input code,
Confirm pairing and connect, (this is normally where you then switch off the ignition to save the pair, DON'T)

While still in the pairing/connected mode go to the "contacts" on the phone,
Mark 10/15 contacts and use send business card -> via blue-tooth -> bmwxxxxx,

Then select another 10/15 and same again until all the contacts are transfered,

When finished the turn off the ignition to save the pair and address book transfer.

Wait until the phone disconnects with the car, then turn on ignition and hey presto the phone book is available.

HTH

John

Too many contacts overload the transfer buffer and the transfer fails...

I only have about 30 contacts and it failed every time I tried "mark all", so I did it in 3 hits of 10, worked a charm.

Hi John,
Thanks for the info. I was thinking about getting an N95 too. How do you like the phone overall?

The n95 is a very nice phone, its about the same depth and hight of a 6230i but a bit wider (all screen), it feels nice in your hand (not heavy at all) and has loads of features, I hardly use the phone, and mostly use mine for the mp3/video player and its great for that, I have the a2dp clip and the quality is very good.

I've bought a 4Gb micro-SD card and it works well in it too.

The only downside is the battery life, it blows, less than a day charge from a full battery, I'm getting a 1800mHA (thats twice the capacity of OEM), hopefully it should be a bit better with that.

The camera is very good to, you get the full 5Megapixel for photos and the video recorder is not bad, you can hook it up to a TV and get reasonable results.

The only reason I bought it was I was sick of carrying around several devices (phone, mp3 player, camera etc....) and the n95 does a reasonable job at all of them.

I've heard that if you debrand the phone back to nokia OEM (from your carriers OS) then things like the menus speed up and the camera works even better, the VOIP works and even the WiFi is better too.

HTH

John
