    which mobile phones work best with bluetooth in car?

    I am looking at getting a new phone, and I would really like to get one that doesnt make the bluetooth in the car sound like a dalek when some one rings!

    Just wondering if people could post up what phone they have and how it reacts with the bluetooth.

    I understand some peoples phones actually ring with their own ringtone through the bluetooth etc

    Also is the annoying bong connection down to style of phone or is it just the way it is.........

    cheers in advance...

    ATTENTION MODS:

    How about a sticky listing what BlueTooth phones are supported for the A3 based on real user experience.

    I'm thinking we could list phones tried and tested and categorise them as follows

    Unsupported
    Supported with 3rd party software add on (detail software required)
    Patial support (detail what does not work)
    Full native support

    I'll start,

    Nokia 6500 Slide = Full Native support
    Nokie N73 - Partial Support (Nokia Connection Manager)
    March 2011 - B8 Audi S4, Ibis White, S-Tronic, Leather / Alcantera Super Sports Seats, Heated Front Seats, Advanced Key, Tech Pack High, Electrically folding and auto dimming mirrors

    SOLD - 8P Audi S3. Brilliant Black, FBMF wheel, Bose, RNS-E, Auto lights/wipers, Cruise control, Tyre pressure monitor, Parking sensors, Interior light pack, GSM phone prep, Armrest, Privacy glass, Electrically folding mirrors.

    I've got the Google G1 phone (HTC) and it works spot on with my bluetooth fitted on the S3. Very clear the only problem I find is when 70-80mph+ on motorway the microphone isnt very loud so find myself slowing down so the person on the other end can hear me better, but apart from that its spot on. The ring tone can scare ya though tis a standard "ring ring" but very loud lol. Hope thats helpful?

    Is bluetooth standard in most S3's does someone know? i.e. with the Satelite Navigation Plus? Sorry don't mean to hijack this thread - I just dont have the car or manual yet so just being a bit impatient!

    Interesting, I thought that my N73 wouldn't work with the car's BT
    That's weird because when I went to look at the S3 I am buying shortly the dealer said you can just bluetooth your IPhone to the car - what in the car would enable this? Some aftermarket Parrot kit?

    I would hazard a guess that most S3s were ordered with the mobile phone prep. It wasn't standard on any model but if someone is spending Ł27k+ on a car Ł385 for BT isn't a huge amount.

    Obviously this particular car has that option.

    Ah ok, the advert for the car I'm getting says 'GSM mobile telephone prep' so sounds like it's got it! Sorry I'm really asking some thicko questions! cheers for your help all.

    I'm trying to keep the sticky threads short but sweet mate so it's better if you know of a useful thread as this one is turning out to be then please post a link in the FAQs thread in a similar format to those posted by Benskin i.e. a short but informative title and then the link to the thread.

    If not this thread then create a new one by all means and in your thread intro let everyone know you would like it to become a thread you link into the FAQs page and then others should keep their answers short and to the point.

    I tested my iPhone 3G on a TT (was the only car the dealer had at the time with Nav) and it worked fine. As much as you can tell in a 30 second phone call with the other person standing outside a couple of metres away.

    My boss has an A4 Avant with bluetooth and her iPhone works really well. It's unbelievably easy to pair up. All you have to do is switch the iPhone on to bluetooth and the car picks up it up within a few seconds, punch in the access code on the car (IIRC it is 1234) and you're all done.

    Big ups for technology.

    I've been told that the N95 works perfectly fine if you use the download.

    I dont have this phone though so cannot comfirm this.


    I'd like to know if there are any issues with the pairing of the N96. I've been told that it does not pair with the Audi bluetooth properly and there are issues.

    But S8craigs list above has it down as pairing ok.

    Can anyone confirm if the N96 works ok?

    Does anyone have one personally?

    I'm about to get a new phone - within the next week or so, so would like to know before I take the plunge between the iPhone and the N96.

    Thanks

    The nokia 810 contacts download manager works, but it also depends on your phone firmware and the phone ECU module SW and revision in your car.

    It depends how many contacts you have, my 200 or so used to take about 2 mins. As far as I know it just says "please wait" in the DIS and if it fails it says "no entries"

    So you have no indication until the phone bleeps and says transfer complete.
