    As the title says. Is it possible to have two phones connected at once via Bluetooth?

    No I don't think so. I have private and works phones and have to switch between them as required.

    AMI is the cable in the centre console.

    Then you can change source for music fx. In both the MMI and the DIS

    It's a pity it doesn't support this function of modern Bluetooth. I had the two-phone thing in the MINI previously and it was very useful.

    Thanks ..

    I have an old iPod attached to cable for music and my iPhone 5 attached via BT. Are you suggesting I can attach one phone via cable and another via BT. If this is the case I'm not clear how to set up.

    Surely the one connected via the AMI cable will only allow music playback though? i.e. no calls or texts.

    I use a jawbone era earpiece. Lasts all day with heavy use, hardly feel it in your ear. Supports two phones.

    probably quite a few options

    dual sim phone
    sim in car on one plan and phone connected via Bluetooth on a 2nd plan
    look at wired options

    This is a bad fault with the a3, I have a brand new focus that allows me to play music from my iphone 5 via bt and then be connected to my work iphone for calls via bt. Pretty good touch if you ask me. Still have to change between phones for calls though but it's very easy! It reads out texts too ! A3 is pretty poor in comparison and considering the cost difference the a3 should really wipe ya arse for you haha! Oh and before you say your a3 does txt! No tech pack for me :(
    All this stuff standard on the focus!
