The problem is the symbian phone, it does not support pbap, Nokia have gone back on an agreement with the car manufactures to support this and as such all their symbian phones donít transfer the contacts to the cars ULF (itís the same for Audi, VW, Rover, Mini, Rolls Royce, Bentley and Skoda etc...).

There are two work a rounds that you can try.

1: Download the contacts manager from the nokia web site (for symbian 3rd Gen phones).

2: If you have a 4th Gen ULF or better the try this.

First, delete any paring for the phone on the phone and ULF, then go into pairing mode on the car, and use the N95 to find the car.

Enter your pin number so the phone is paired. But do not connect to the phone yet (say no when asked by the ULF), and don't exit pairing mode on the BMW yet either.

Now on the N95 go to contacts. Select about 10-15 contacts (hold down the pen key and scroll down). Then go to options -> send business card -> via Bluetooth. Select the BMW from the list of Bluetooth devices and it'll send them across. Repeat for the rest of your contact list.

Once done, now connect to the phone (via the phones BT connect menu) the phone will connect then disconnect straight away, now turn off the cars ignition to save the pair.

You may end up with a few duplicates in your BMW phonebook depending on whether your original contacts had multiple phone numbers or not. But it definitely works and displays incoming call name properly etc.

I tried doing the whole contacts list in one go but it failed - doing it piecemeal takes a little longer but its a one time thing.

My car is a 2002 E46 with SatNav + TV + BT (retro-fitted), connecting with a N95 - V20.

My 3rd Gen ULF was a bit hit and miss, but I've now upgraded to a 12th Gen and this works 100% all the time, no sms reading but everything else.

HTH

You will have a 6th Gen or better then.

I'd make the cantacts manager my 2nd choice as it need to run all the time on the phone, (this really drains the battery on the n95).

No, the contacts info is paired with the phone, so your wifes SE will work as expected (her contacts), and when you jump in the car your phone will pair with all your contacts. (make your phone the last phone paired (this will be the primary phone), so if you and your wife are in the car your phone is the phone that will pair with the car not her's).

Is this the Contact(s) manager you 're talking about?
http://europe.nokia.com/A4144399

This is the closest I find, I want to give it a try (I have a Nokia 6120c- S60 3rd edition that can't transfer contacts to my 4gen ULF...)
Where can I download the correct contact manager???

They are, it is actually for the VDO Dayton but since MK is a clone of VDO it works just fine. The gb file is 1835kb dated 18/7/2006
(the MK has V2 Voices)

TNX for the tip on pairing phones right way.
BTW, Using this contact menager, does it mean that i will get fresh phonebook every time ? if yes then i can live with battery life

Yes, I think so. (not a Guarantee)

It drained my battery in less than 1 day... that's why I did'nt use it, the n95 battrey is rubbish.
