    Treo 750 (AT&T) seems to work fine - all functions displayed but will not transfer phonebook. Sound & call quality seems very good. BT seems to sync readily when left on auto and phone BT is turned on.

    AT&T - Nokia 6085 (standard flip phone) - works OK with my 2005 Prius.

    Only can transfer one number at a time, though :( -but it's a cheap phone and an early model Prius so no complaints... Audio quality is OK in the car, and my callers say I sound fine on their end.

    The bluetooth connection / handsfree status of the phone seems a bit temperamental sometimes, but 95% of the time it's all good.

    matched 2 iphones to our prius seamlessly. i love that when using bluetooth the voice comes out of center speaker now... instead of coming from door speaker on driver side. i rewired it when upgrading the sound system (the jbl premium system just didn't quite deliver).

    Anyone use MetroPCS and can recommend one of their phones?

    I'm not sure if your response was to my question about MetroPCS phones or not. Since this thread does not generate a lot of posts I assumed you were referring to my post. When I look on the MetroPCS site there is no Pantech C610 shown.

    I have a T-Mobile Dash Smartphone. The bluetooth compatibility with Prius is great! (Far better than my old Nokia 65xx, which accidently died in the washing machine.) It is one of the better ones listed in the Toyota bluetooth compatibility list. -- This phone is actually an HTC S621 Smartphone which is available for use in numerous cellular systems. It runs Windows Mobile v6.

    If it is available for Cingulair you may want to give it a try. The phone is also available unlocked by various online resellers which can make it compatible with a number of cellular systems (but not nec. all...) and capable of use all over the world...

    Hope this helps... :)

    btw// I cannot transfer my phonebook but have to manually enter every number. Someone said a laptop works well. And my response was to what blue tooth phones work with the Prius. Mine does.

    Does anyone use the LG AX 500 with a 2009 Prius with Navigation? It is not on the letstalk link that toyota sends you to.

    Sony Ericsson TM507 partially works

    I'm new here, and hope I'm doing this right.

    I can dial calls out with the Navi or with my phone, and can receive calls on the Navi. I've tried to transfer my phonebook to the Navi with instructions I found on wikiHow.com, and when I try to send the phonebook the Navi stops recognizing the phone, and I get a message "No bluetooth devices found".

    Is this as good as it gets?

    Just got a T-Mobile MyTouch 3G and has absolutely no issues. Sound is great.
    Previously had a Nokia E71 and HTC Fuze both connected to the Prius Bluetooth without any issues.

    Palm Pre works just fine. I didn't transfer any contacts, however, as I just kept what was in there already.

    Very common issue. Some had to use a Blue tooth lap top to make this work.
