Question about Cell Phones

3 Answers

I am having a problem pairing a Sony Ericsson W518A with a Lexus RX 350. The AT&T salesman was able to pair his phone with the vehicle, as was my friend, but I cannot get the Sony Ericsson to pair and I have a conference call during a four hour road trip tomorrow. Please help!!

    You are correct....we are attempting to pair via Bluetooth.



    To answer your questions.....we tried pairing both ways (from the phone to the car AND from the car to the phone). I can't get to the point that it'll detect either way, so am not yet able to enter a PIN (which is 1111 for this particular phone/vehicle).



    What is confusing about this is that the OLD phone WAS paired with the vehicle. I just purchased a NEW phone and can't pair since removing/replacing the chip from the old to the new phone. We've also tried going "back to what worked" and put the chip back in the old phone (that was able to, at one time, pair with the vehicle) and it will no longer pair. Two phones....one vehicle....no love. Meanwhile, everyone else that chooses to pair with this vehicle isn't having a problem......thoughts???

    Horrible response....had you read the thread, we WERE at the dealer (AT&T store)....the problem is obviously not with the vehicle.....time wasted with you.

  • milbrandtjw Jul 29, 2009

    Appreciate any added experience/commentary you can add above and beyond "take it to the dealer". Thanks in advance....

  • milbrandtjw Jul 29, 2009

    Maybe worth a shot, but I'm assuming that the phone was bought new, from the store, that it wouldn't need an immediate upgrade....apologies for the initial harsh response - I misinterpreted as "take it back"....appreciate the input.

  • milbrandtjw Jul 29, 2009

    Ahhhhh....something we weren't aware of and hadn't yet done.....we'll check....thanks.

  • milbrandtjw Jul 29, 2009

    Haven't yet tried....but at least it's something new.....and a meaningful response......THANKS....

    Pairing a Sony phone with a Lexus. Meaningful respone...thank you.

You will need to see if it is compatible,Not all bluetooth device will pair since there are 2 different frequencies used for bluetooth.You will need to check the documentation on the Lexus site and maybe the phone site as well.

Are you trying to pair up your phone to the car via Bluetooth? How do you initiate the pairing? Are you searching for the BT devices using your phone or using the BT device in your car?

If you're using the phone to initiate the pairing, you have to make sure that the BT device in the car is set to discoverable mode so that the phone could detect it. Once detected, pair it up using the PIN 1234 or 0000.

Hope this helps and have a great day!
