Hi,

This is a major concern for all the NOKIA mobiles. People are still waiting for a positive solution. However, as we are more smart than NOKIA ( Kidding ), there are certain tricks that might work :-

1. I updated the "Nokia Firmware Downloader" under the instructions of PC Suite which I already had installed.
- I updated the firmware on my MODEL and enjoyed that it wiped my contacts.
- I deleted the existing pairing on the phone and car.
- I added one simple contact to the phone contacts list.
- I checked the installed "Contact Download Application" was running on the phone.
- I paired the phone and car and immediately saw a transfer of the contact I had entered.

2. I deleted the existing pairing on the phone and car.
- I checked the installed "Contact Download Application" was running on the phone.
-I paired the phone and car and nothing seemed to happen, even after afew tries at reinitiating the Bluetooth connection by switching the caron and off.

I figured there was a requirement that the phone's firmware be updated, so started again.

3. I set about doing backups using PC Suite and also the phone's system for saving content to the memory card.
- I updated the MODEL using PC Suite noting my girlfriend has better luck than I as all her contacts remained.
- I deleted the existing pairing on the phone and car.
-I checked the installed "Contact Download Application" was running onthe phone (it had remained installed despite the firmware update).
-I paired the phone and car and nothing seemed to happen, even after afew tries at reinitiating the Bluetooth connection by switching the caron and off and on again.
- Whilst staring at the miserable POS for a while (and pointlessly poking with the "Contact Download Application"I CANT SEE MY CONTACTS - 16x16_smiley-wink.gif I noticed the transfer commence and all contacts come across from the phone to the car.
-I estimate it took 2 minutes for the transfer to commence with the MODEL, and note it did not have a particularly large number of contacts.Once it stared it was damned quick.

I was, of course, totally chuffed and guaranteed an excellent breakfast.

Ipropose someone try the above method with an MODEL to the letter to seeif it works. Don't shortcut and make sure everything is the absolutelatest revision. Hopefully all goes well and someone else can try thefollowing.

4. Ignore firmware updating on phone.
- Delete the existing pairing on the phone and car.
- Download and install the MODEL Contact Download Application for Nokia devices" from Nokia's website.
- Check the installed "Contact Download Application" is running on the phone.
- Pair the phone and car then reinitiate the Bluetooth connection by switching the car on and off and on again.
- WAIT for the transfer to commence and all contacts to come across from the phone to the car.

Ireally hope this progresses some of the NOKIA operating systemconnectivity issues out there, and highlight that as of last night Iwas a total noob. It's all trial, error, analysis and patience!

Further help, let me know.

Thanks.

How do you connect your 5800 Xpress Music to the BMW? Do you have another device that you use to connect the phone? Is it connected via USB cable or Bluetooth?

If the 5800 is connected to a device to use a voice command using the USB data cable, you may need to unplug the USB cable and plug it back in after couple of minutes.

You may also try power cycling the phone by turning it off, remove the battery, turn it back on after 5 minutes.

If the phone is connected via Bluetooth, disconnect it first, power cycle the phone and then reconnect the phone via Bluetooth.

Please let me know what the result will be.

Hope it helps and have a great day!

    Thank you for the information. Please try this, on the sync program that you use for your 5800 phone, you have to check the settings for the contacts. Here are the things that you need to check:

    1. Make sure that the server path is correct. You should find it in the 5800 Xpress music manual.
    2. Try setting the server mode to "Slow". By default, the server mode for sync programs are set to normal. Set it to slow and try synchronizing the phone or the Contacts.

    If you get the same problem, disconnect it from the Bluetooth connection, power cycle the phone by removing the battery for 5 minutes and turn the phone back on.

    If same problem exists, you may refer to Nokia Care Center for second opinion.

    Have a good day ahead!

The 5800 is a newer version of the Symbian 60 operating system and the bmw unit does not support it. As yet, there is no sis file for this handset like you have downloaded before, so best bet would be to keep looking at the car kit software page to see if one comes out.

from what i know 5800 supports PBAP bluetooth profiles you might want to ask bmw if they have some software upgrade

but before letting down ur heart try the following to be doubly sure......


As such I would try deleting the car device from the phone and the phone device from the car. Then I would try starting the pairing using the car. Go to the car menu and start the pairing there. Hopefully the phone will be found and connect with the appropriate protocol. I couldn't find anything on a compatibility mode in the manual for your phone so let's hope this works...

However, it will take quite a few attempts at pairing, deleting pairing and repairing again before it finally works. One tip would be to leave the phone alone for a few minutes after pairing, to allow the download of contacts to complete. The length of time this requires depends on the number of contacts you have on your phone. You should be able to tell when the download is complete by scrolling down the contact list on iDrive. It starts downloading from A to Z.


whenever i have BT problems not connecting or disconnecting, i always try to reset the BT device (BT car kit in your case) to clean factory reset, where all the previous pairings are erased (how to do this, well consult your car bt kit manual) and then i remove any previous pairings in the phone, sometimes i even factory reset the phone and then i pair them again together, and so far this has been working for me

I have just bought a Nokia 5800 and didn't expect there would be problems connecting it to my 3 series E46 BMW 2003 plate BT carkit.

I have paired the phone to the BT carkit and can receive calls with the phone number being displayed on the stereo and can make calls only if using the phone which then transfers to the carkit. The phone book does not transfer and the functions on the steering wheel do not work except to end a call or answer one.
After considerable searching on the internet I came across a post that described a way to transfer the phone book to the car and although some poeple have reported this unsucessful it has working in my case. This is what I have done.

I deleted the pairing, then paired as normal but DID NOT turn the ignition switch off after pairing. I then selected one phone book entry, checked mark and then sent as a business card to bluetooth and selected the BMW. I had a message on the phone to say this was sucessful. I then tried to select all contacts and send them, but I had a message saying this failed. Beleiving I may have at least one entry in the BMW BT carkit I turned the ignition off, waited then turned back on. The phone connected as normal but now when I press the phone book on the steering wheel ALL phone book entries are there. I have now waited over 1/2 hour and tried again and all is still OK. I can scroll up and down the phone book and when I phone myself using the house phone the name now appears in the stereo display.

I have posted this as so far it seems to have worked for me but it may not work for others. coz ur phone aint compatible with bmv bluetooth


Car manufacturers are still notoriously slow at updating their factory-fit car kits, so it is not surprising many are not compatible with the latest models. Your car may be as young as a 2005 model, but it is possible that the equipment installed may be an older design than that.

Despite what the slick salesmen will tell you, manufacturer's car kits are not the best choice - it is much better to buy either a product from the manufacturer of the phone you use or an independent manufacturer, you have much better chance of getting newer technology that is compatible with modern phones.

In any case, the 5800XM is a completely new version of the Symbian operating system, and bmw has still not put them under there compatibility list......

check out the following official bmw link for compatibilty of ur phone.... i cudnt see one for 5800

if u feel i ve been of any help to u..... kindly rate my service...


good luck....

I cant send an e mail without typing the address directly in, i cannot retrieve it from my contact list. I may have loaded the information into my contact list incorrectly but am not sure why .


Open up your contacts and select a contact that you know has an email address. Select "Edit", and make sure that the email address in the email line. If you synchronize your contacts with a Google account, or Me account, then you can easily modify multiple contacts simultaneously.

Cant remove frequently used contacts from my reciepient list


go to your menu, select call log, then from call log options, filter it through received messages, it will give you the list of people who texted you, press delete and select the contacts you wanted to delete from your call log. 
hence you can do this, press call key, it will bring you immediately to call log menu, you will see the list of people who you contacted and who contacted you, filter it to your own liking and delete. 
take care.

Cell phone silence


This problem seems to be related to the contacts list - makes no sense but in my Son's Env phone if he removes one of his contacts it fixes it! it seems that it only happens when someone in your contact list calls or you call them. Weird...then it will happen again and same thing fixes it.
