Thumbs down Bluetooth phonebook transfer

Hello everyone, I’m having an issue with my bluetooth phonebook transfer. I have got the bluetooth in my 2003 x5 with navigation to work with the phone as a hands free device, but the phonebook seems to be intermittent. When the key is turned on and the phone is in range the contacts appear in the directory on the car. After about a minute or two the phonebook clears out and is replaced with a phone book empty message. Is there a way to get the bluetooth module to remember the contacts? Any help would be appreciated…

Phone is a Version Wireless Voyager
Vehicle is a 2003 BMW X5 4.4i with navigation and video module

Thank,
Adam

You can permanently transfer phonebook to the car
Search for phonebook empty and you will find the answer...

So you tried folowing

**********************Orignaly posted by ccfj1***************************

First, delete any paring for the phone on the phone and ULF, then go into pairing mode on the car, and use the Phone 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 Phone go to contacts. Select about 10-15 contacts, 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.

Check your phonebook for strange letters (none standard ones)
If none present then your ULF does not fully support this feature or you transferd to many contacts
