Bluetooth phone with Verizon/Sprint

I have check the x5World bluetooth compatibility pages (thanks UCrewX5!).

Ideally, I want a CDMA bluetooth phone which can transfer address book info into the X5. Looks like I have two choices :

1) go for the hard to find SE T608 (rangerfan had good experience); but not sure that the text messaging works on Verizon. I need text messaging.
2) Mot. 710 (and hack its software, yikes)

Not much of a selection

I have a further Q for the bluetooth experts. Since the standard issue V710 does not transfer the phonebook; can you manually add phone #s to the X5 address book and then make use of the nav. screen dialing and voice dialing ?

Thanks for any input.

No need to hack the V710.

Just go to Verizon Wireless and upgrade the V710 firmware to 1.40OR. However, all the newer V710 come with 1.40OR.

If you have a 2004 X5, you probably can retrofit the -993 BT/Assist module which works perfectly with the V710 with 1.40OR firmware.

If you have a 2005 X5 with Assist, then you probably already have the -993 BT/Assist module. You just need a V710 with 1.40OR.

I've retrofitted my '04 M3 with the -993 and the V710 works perfectly.

For reference, the reason the V710 works well with the modules Doc has identified above is that those modules are all manufactured by Motorola (who also make the V710). The BMW Bluetooth modules for installation into X5's produced prior to mid-2004 were made by Visteon.

Don't get me wrong, the Visteon modules are great. They just have an compatibility issue with the V710.

Many thanks guys. (UCrewX5, you responded in 4 MINUTES on a Sat. night !!! Your dedication to X5World is amazing !!)

My X5 is '00. I was thinking of going with the AdvancedAutovations retro-fit, I'll try and find out from them if they use the -933/993 or Visteon module.

Doc Kewl : are there two parts, the -933 and the -993 ? You mention both numbers but I guess this might be a typo ??

I am also looking at the (new'ish, much cheaper) Parrot kit and figuring if I can get this to work - although without integrated CallerID/address book. Of course, if I go thise route, I'll be pleased to prepare a Parrot install doc. for X5World.

Advanced Autovations supply a ULF module whose part number ends in '552'.
Furthermore, they says that the V710 address book does not transfer with any BMW ULF module - huh ?

He likely meant that the V710 address book doesn't transfer with any Visteon BMW Bluetooth ULF module - which I believe are the only modules that can be retrofitted into a pre-2004 X5.
