    Hi everyone,

    My wife and I just got new Verizon V3M bluetooth phones. I have read the book for the phone and the manual for our 2006 Prius, but I just can't seem to get the connection to work. The phones come with a small connector to the power port -- Is this needed, or should I be able to connect without it?

    I'm usually able to figure stuff like this out, but I am baffled.

    I hit handsfree on the phone, I touch register on the Prius screen, the phone finds the car, I enter the passcode from the car onto the phone and then hit ok, but I keep getting unable to connect.

    Does anyone have an easy walkthrough that can point me in the right direction?

    Thanks

    that small connector is only if you are using a wired headset.

    1)on phone:

    go to menu, settings, connections, Bluetooth, setup. turn power to BT on

    2) go to car, set to sync mode

    3) back to phone, go to handsfree under BT menu. should only have to hit clear once to get there from where you were. search for devices. find car. BT passkey is 0000. you are done

    Correct Dave,
    So he won't get frustrated farther down the road, don't even THINK about trying to (OPP) push your database/phone book into the Prius's memory. Verizon was successfully sued in a class action for crippling that function (that way they can force you more easily into buying ring tones, wallpapers, etc via their partner's software). This is the case in virtually all VZW phones, save a couple rare situations. The search tool is a wonderful thing. It's been written ad nausium in numerous threads.

    You need to update yourself on this point. Verizon has relented and allows vCard transfer on their phones now. I know of several LG and Motorola Verizon phones that transfer contacts via vCard albeit only one at a time. I know there are more but they are models I have not bothered to research.

    Personally, I sat in their parking lot, just 5 weeks ago ~ trying all the latest & greatest to no avail so I'd be pleased to read content of multitudes with success. Again, when I spoke of limited success? One at a time falls within that paramiter.

    beeblebrox,
    I just got a new RAZR V3xx (3G) from Cingular and paired it up with my '05 Prius in a couple of minutes.
    I assume that all RAZRs (from Cingular or Verison) should have similar Bluetooth chips and GUI (Verizon does turn some profiles off as other said, but you only asked about "pairing"). Here is the procedure:

    On the car:
    (if your Prius was paired with before)
    INFO->PHONE->Settings->(page down)->Delete Phone (select the phone) and Delete it -> Yes

    INFO->PHONE->Settings->(page down)->Add Phone
    (screen shows that it is waiting to be discovered and shows the passcode, which you could change later)

    On your Phone:
    Settings -> Connections -> Bluetooth -> Setup -> Turn Power ON (if not on already)
    Settings -> Connections -> Bluetooth -> Add Audio Device (not 'Find Me'!!!!)
    The phone will shows all the devices it finds (should be 1 at this point).
    Your will be asked to enter the passcode (as shown on the Prius screen). Once done, that is it.

    There may be minor difference among all versions of RAZRs (my wife has an older V3), but they are basically similar when it comes to Bluetooth. Compared with my old SE W600i, MOTO phones always have better range when it comes to Bluetooth.

    If you still fail to connect it to Prius, it may be that your phone has
    a defected Bluetooth chip. It happened to me before. You may need to return it and get a new phone to try again. :(

    P.S. I bought the new phone to try the new Stereo Bluetooth that enables you to listen to music on your phones (up to 2G micro SD card) while not missing phone call. :lol:

    I wish Verizon used the same OS as other carriers. They insist on using the stupid BREW system.

    Do you own a laptop? Or have a friend with one. Since you own a 2004, you can use Phone Ripper and upload your phone book that way. I think its better anyway...you can edit and preview your contacts before uploading to the Prius.

    While I agree that Verizon's menuing and UI is lame, thats actually just the OS itself. Brew is only used for the "Get it now" applications and, depending on how well written the software is, can do some awesome stuff - try the Navigation App for the best example.

    BREW is not used that much any more. as phones have become faster and able to store more memory, they are able to do more things. VZ Navigator is an example of an application that does not use BREW. child zone chapparone is another example of advanced applications that can be used on a cellphone. chapparone allows you to track a cellphone and be alerted via text msg and email when that phone has left a designated area. very very cool and important if you have a younger child and want to be able to keep tabs on them or be alerted as soon as they stray from the area you set up
