    My problem is connecting my iphone G3  to the bluetooth in my bmw. I can't get them to pair up.  My cheap Motorola connected fine and ran perfectly. Still can't find the solution for my new, fancy iphone.

    I recently bought a 2008 Prius and a new iPhone 3G. They pair up fine and all the functions work except for volume.



    When I make or receive a call, the volume is very faint for the first few seconds, then starts increasing to normal volume.



    When I'm making a call this means the ringing sound starts faint and increases. By the time the person answers the volume is almost normal.

    However, when I receive a call, I have to say 'Hello' several times before the caller hears me and then the callers voice is faint for a few seconds. Eventually the volume is fine.

    .

    I used my wife's LG Vu with the Prius and had no problem. Volume was strong right away. We both have AT&T as our carrier. The version on my iPhone is 2.51.



    Does anyone have any ideas.

Well the folks at ATT were useless. The person at the technology counter said she did not know about technology. She asked the other counter person who said just go to the Toyota dealer.
I call Apple and talked with Bryce. He said this was a very big problem effecting owners of BMW, Toyota, Infiniti. Apple is working on it he said.
He mentioned that when the G3 iphone came out it did not do this. Now it is massive.
Funny thing is, my phone did not do this originally. Now, 25 days into ownership it is Bluetooth worthless.
At least now we won't waiste time at ATT or the car dealer or reprogramming bluetooth connection.

Will not auto connect to Prius bluetooth


It may be the setting for the bluetooth device on your V3.
Go into bluetooth,
Click on device history,
Go to your device and click edit and check the settings in there.

I don't know if you have already checked this but I hope it helps anyway.

first of all you have to have you bluetooth visibility on for it to connect to another device.

Page 90 on your manual.

Now if you are connecting to a car in which you are, leave the bluetooth enabled on your phone. You should be just able to connect to your phone when you turn the device on in the car.

(your probably driving a toyota)

If its not automatically detecting it, your toyota is the problem. when you get in the car all you really should have to do is go to connectivity on your phone, bluetooth, connect to the device.

And the toyota is probably a prius!

My phone connects automatically every time i turn the phone on.

when you set up the device, it will ask you the question.....connect automatically>? so you need to answer yes.

Let me know if there is anything more I can do.
