Paired Blackberry Curve 8310 w/Range Rover 2005 drops calls

I have successfully paired the new Blackberry with the built in Bluetooth connection in my 2005 Range Rover however as soon as the call is answered the bluetooth drops the call. The Blackberry still shows connected, but the bluetooth in the car is not. I'm assuming they're compatible since it accepts the code and acknowledges the Land Rover on the Blackberry, but I can't make or receive calls. Any ideas of how to fix? AT&T couldn't help me.

    i have the 8900 curve and a 2005 range rover, same problem for me. although while the rover disconnects but the phone shows connected, i managed to dial another call using the menu key on the curve. this enabled the pairing to work while the curve processed two calls. not a solution though just more data.

    Thanks for the tip on the soft button. I tried this and it while it places the call again it does allow the call to connect and doesnt drop it as before. Frustratingly I just got the BBerry Bold and its exactly the same problem - LR still not admitting it is a LR problem!!!!

    I have the same problem with my I-Phone 3-G and I was told the bluetooth module in the car needs to be upgraded with newer software.

    I am having the same issue and figured out to hit the green button again BUT if you are listening to music or have the GPS on this option does not work as it automatically goes back to the screen you were on unabling you to hit the green button a second time!!! This is quite frustrating.

Which dealer did you get your part from?? Do you have a part number?

Ok, this isn't so much a solution as a work around.

As long as your phone is still holding the call (showing connected), once the Range Rover drops the call, hit the soft button that shows a picture of a green phone if you were making a call. This will cause the Range Rover to reconnect the speakrs/mike to the phone, and you can continue your call in relative harmony.

I still haven't figured out how to get out of the jam when a second call comes in while you are still on the first....

Good Luck

    Just wanted to let everyone know that there is apparently an chip upgrade available for the 2005 Range Rover for the Bluetooth hands free system. It took my local dealer 6 months for the part to get in (really), but they finally installed it, and my warranty covered it. The bluetooth now works as designed. You can see the names of callers that are in your address book, it auto connects when you enter the vehicle, you can dial by name from the vehicle display (although it just selects a default phone if you have multiple numbers rather than giving you the opportunity to choose), and what's more, there is a marked inmprovement to broadcast sound quality. I suggest that anyone having this issue get this upgrade.

Probably a Bluetooth compatibility problem. Just because they paired doesn't mean the drivers in both devices are currently compatible (one of them may have been updated without you knowing). You will have to dig deeper and determine what the current Bluetooth versions are on each and then check compatibility.

2009 Chevy Malibu Bluetooth pairing with my Blackberry Curve has stopped working after nearly a year. Once the pairing is set and working, it is no longer paired the next time the vehicle is re-started.

HI!!You need to take the vehicle to the dealer for an software upgrade that will take care of the pairing and discovery issues. Call the Chevy dealer, explain your problem and make an appointment.

Anyone successfully paired any phone

It seems to me that the more advanced the phone is, the less likely it is to pair correctly. My wife has an LG Vu and it pairs beautifully. Picks up every time. I have the Windows Mobile based LG Incite and it doesn't work too well at all. Also tried it with my friends iPhone. No luck there either.

So my solution would be to get a basic phone. Sorry :-(

You'll have to call the dealer have them pull the VIN to see if you have the latest and greatest software. Also you can check on the land rover website under owners put in the last 8 digits of your vin number and it will tell you if the BB8900 is fully compatible.

Software upgrade for 2005 Range Rover Bluetooth module

Official LRNA solution: buy a new module. I will be doing this tomorrow. I have been through this comprehensively with LR Dallas and LRNA. There may well have been other modules installed depending on when the Rover was built, but mine is not flashable. BTW, when plugged in, the dealer computer checks your Rover for updated software, which is downloaded from LRNA every night.
