When my Smartphone died last week, I started researching optiong for my next phone, and being a Verizon customer I was pretty enthused to see they finally had a BT capable phone - the V710. Thanks to all of you who contribute to this site, I was quickly clued in to the fact that Verizon has, for whatever reason, diabled some of the BT functionality on the phone - resulting in no ability to import the phonebook on your phone into the car, and no incoming ring in the car or on the phone when in BT mode. I appreciate all the information we share on this site, because it saved me a huge disappointment had I rushed out to get that phone. Instead I started expanding my thinking, and decided that if I could find a phone with another provider that would have what I need, I would consider paying the contract termination fee with Verizon. What I found was the BLACKBERRY 7100t a relatively new phone that is equipped with BT AND has traditional Blackberry email capabilities. This phone is a little different from the previous BB phones in that it has been slimmed down to the candy bar shape of classic phones, instead of the wide flat box that diminishes the BB appeal as a phone. The way BB accomplished this is by assigning two letters to each key, and developing an advanced software called SureType that intuits the word you are typing so you don't have to scroll back and forth between the letters to type. I was a little skeptical so I went to the store and tried it out. After a short learning curve, I was amazed at how well this software works. But on to what you really want to know about - the BT compatibility. I just paired the device with my car and made a few test calls. Worked great, including receiving a test call which rang on my phone but not in the car. I haven't tried to import an address book yet because I have to synch it with my Outlook at work, but I will report back on that next week. Using the chart info already set up in other posts (and I will cross post this to that thread for the convenience of site users): 1-Set up difficulty. - EASY 2-Speed connecting with car. - ABOUT 3 SECONDS 3-Sound quality. - GOOD 4-Transfer of phone book. - TBD 5-Display of signal strength/roaming/caller id/etc. - DISPLAYS SIGNAL STRENGTH, SHOWS CALLER ID, DON'T KNOW ABOUT ROAMING YET 6-Does the prius RING for incoming calls. - PRIUS DOES NOT RING, BUT PHONE RINGS 7-Transfer from phone to car/car to phone on already established calls. - PHONE TO CAR AND CAR TO PHONE BOTH POSSIBLE THROUGH HANDSET - YOU CAN SWITCH BETWEEN HANDSET AND HANDSFREE DURING CALL I hope this is helpful to those of you who are shopping for a BT phone for your Prius, and I hope Verizon gets the message that they are losing customers to other providers by 1) disabling the very features that attracted people to their one BT phone and 2) being so far behind other carriers in terms of the BT functionality and options in their phone selection.
