Re: set up of cell phone in a 2005 jaguar x-type ??
Have you contacted jaguar to be sure the car is wired? Just because there is a phone symbol on the stereo means nothing. They all have that. Go to Jaguars web site and email them with you cars VIN number and ask if the car has been prewired. they will get back to you in about in 2 days and let you know. See here is you are sure it is wired.

Many earlier cars will have the pre-wiring installed but not the phone option. The easiest way to check is to contact the dealership give them your VIN number and they will tell you. If you have Bluetooth installed. Hold the radio button marked with a phone for about a second, the display will change to indicate xxxxx or 'No Phone'. If the latter is the case then it is most likely that you do not have the option installed
I believe you can just call any cell phone provider but the phone willl have a different number than your current phone, you cant link your current phone into it, thats whay we didn't use it , you could also try calling Jag as well.

If it has been prewired you can get it set up for a price, if not, you are out of luck.
i have a 2004 xjr with the telephone armrest cradle. The problem is even though i have the factory phone it's not E911 compliant. As a result when it was accidently deactivated it can no longer have service. Be on the lookout for another phone that will fit. Good luck ---- I read on a blog that the CRAVE will work by verizon but have not looked into it yet.
When I went to the Jaguar dealership the dealer (Farmingtonhills of Michigan Jaguar dealership)told me that only either 2005 or it was 2006 and better are the only autos with this function. I have a 2004 and I wanted to do the same thing. There might be another solution that I did not think of untill I left, asking them if it possible to install a bluetooth package. This might be possible, but for those of us that have a 2005 and lower model they did not come with this feature.
