Bluetooth pairing with Lexus

I need a workaround to get my Palm Treo 700p to pair with Lexus bluetooth. It seems crazy to me that it will only pair depending on which cell carrier you havce.

    I also have a 700p and a lexus. The blue tooth does not work. Palm says go to hell and lexus says sorry. I think that the palm 700p is a poor device. They should change their attitude or no one in their right mind will continue to buy Palms.

    After the last upgrade, my palm 700P no longer syncs with my Lexus RX330. If there is no fix, I would like to revert my system back to the old version.

    How I got my Palm Treo 650 and My Palm Treo 755 to pair with my 2007 Lexus (LS460)

    After many attempts to get these two phones to pair with no success, I called Lexus and got no help nor any hope. For the record, the Palm website says that these two phones should work with Toyota and Lexus. They even identify the manufacturer of the electronics as "denso". If you go to the Lexus website, it does not list the Palm as a compatible phone.

    I visited the Lexus dealer and got the same answer, "Palm probably will not work." They did offer to help me try. I accepted their help but had no luck. I even tried it on more than one car.

    I visited the Sprint store and got a similar response. The Sprint store even let me thy another Palm Treo 755. Still no luck.

    Now I was determined to try many different sequences in my last effort to find a solution. I tried the traditional method but the Lexus just locks up and never completes the pairing process. I tried soft resets and hard resets on the phone. I tried resets on the Lexus. I tried changing the pairing steps. I tried different pairing codes. All of these efforts only led to failure.

    I finally had success by accident. After going through the standard pairing steps and having the Lexus lock up, I picked up my phone to initiate a call to my wife. Using the phone (bluetooth still turned on), I did a speed dial to my wife's phone. Holding the phone up to my ear / mouth, waiting for my wife to answer her phone, I heard the phone ring sound coming out of the car's audio system. When she answered, I heard her voice from the car's speakers. I said, "Can you hear me?" Her reply was "Yes." We completed our conversation and I immediately repeated the phone call. Same result. It worked handsfree via bluetooth. I then checked the Lexus' list of paired phones and guess what I saw? My Palm Treo was listed in the paired phone list. I immediately repeated the process, this time with my Palm Treo 650. It worked also.

    As of now, I have not tried a Palm Treo 700, but I hope to complete that process asap.

    If you try my method, let me know your results. Also if you try any other Palms, let me know your results.

    Good luck,

    I have the same problem with my Palm TREO 750 and Landcruiser. I can make and receive calls. But calls should be made from phone. However Call logs and Phone book are not transfered to the Display Unit. Any suggestions?

I also wasted lot of time pairing my 755p with LS460.
Then I resorted to Internet search for the fix. Got your accidental fix. Worked like a charm.

Pairing my Palm Treo with my 2010 RX 350 worked, but the car didn't realize. i.e. I paired it as the owner's manual states. The car said that it didn't find the phone. I then turned off the car, turned it back on, made a phone call from my phone, and the car picked up.

I took the advice of another poster. I own the Palm Treo 755P and had trouble pairing it to my 2009 Lexus RX350. I went through the normal pairing process using code 0000 and after my phone recognized the car, I finished the process on my phone. The car had not found the phone yet. I immediately dialed out on the phone and it began to work. The car then recognized the phone and completed the pairing. Works like a charm now.

Try using the following code: 0000 on the Palm Treo and your car's device. It worked for my BMW 328i

Bluetooth connetion with Verizon Treo 700P

Looks like your saying you've updated your n?vi 660 to software(firmware) version 2.0, if so you're moving in the right direction. Unfortunately the n?vi 660 does support the Treo 700P but only seems to support the 'Hands-free' BlueTooth profile and this is often problematical as is the 'headset' profile with some device combinations, that's precisely why many phones and devices now support both profiles. Check the pairing information to see if you're using 'headset' or 'Hands-free', whatever you're using delete the pairing on both devices and see if they will let you pair in the other profile. Your Treo 700P is made by PalmOne ( so you may want to check for software updates from them. This kind of problem is down to the lack of a solid standard for BlueTooth communications and you will often find that settings that work for one combination of devices are unstable with another. Post back if this doesn't help or if you need us to clarify anything.

My Treo 755p will recognizes my new jawbone but will not connect. It seems to skip the step where I am supposed to enter a password into to connect to the jawbone. Any ideas? Josh

Delete any other bluetooth devices paired to your phone. Then, for the Palm Treo 755p . . .
To pair the Palm Treo 755p handset with the Jawbone, perform the steps listed below:
  1. Set the Jawbone to Pairing Mode.
    • For the Original Jawbone, press and hold down the Noise Shield button for at least three seconds until the LED Indicator Light flashes red.
    • For the New Jawbone, press and hold down both the NoiseAssassin™ Button and the Talk Button for at least three seconds until the LED Indicator Light flashes red and white alternately.
  2. Press Applications and select Bluetooth.
  3. Select Bluetooth On.
  4. Select Setup Devices.
  5. Select Trusted Devices.
  6. Select Add Device. (The Discovery icon appears, indicating that the discovery process is active.)
  7. Select the Show pick list and select Nearby devices.
  8. Select Jawbone from the Discovery Results list, and then select OK.
  9. Enter the PIN "0000" (be sure you are entering four zeroes and not the letter "O".) and select OK.
  10. Select Done, and then select Done again to return to the Bluetooth screen.
Your phone should now be paired with the Jawbone.
