Re: Same problem with Bold 9930 and BMW 328

I'm going through the same thing with my 2011 and the Bold 9930 on Verizon. Waiting for a fix through blackberry...this is ridiculous. I have been contemplating switching to the new iphone that integrates right into the car! Someone please let us know if you find a fix!!! Thanks

Re: Same problem with Bold 9930 and BMW 328

I had previosuly thought i had a temp fix, by disonnecting my contact synch on my 9900, but alas, the device freezing has started occuring again. So I am back to square one, with NO bluetooth capability in my new BMW X5. This is NOT a BMW issue, and retarded that RIM has not addressed it, nor will even respond to any or all of these posts!

Make your lives easy and just return the phone. It is not worth waitng for RIM to see if and when they come up with a fix.

Re: Same problem with Bold 9930 and BMW 328

What I have been doing is using the Blackberry as an additional phone. So I still receive calls on it through the bluetooth system. However I also have an iPhone through work and I use that as my main phone in the car. It all works well. 

 

However this obviously is not the perfect solution and not the solution for everyone. Honestly, who has two phones? :smileyhappy:

 

Hopefully there is a fix soon.

Re: Same problem with Bold 9930 and BMW 328

I also tried your suggested approach of disconnecting contact synch, which didn't take.

 

And I agree, where is the RIM Mod on this thread? They need to grow a pair and engage.....

Re: Same problem with Bold 9930 and BMW 328

i gave up trying, i am back to my old phone simply because i need to move on with this, until the time RIM wakes up and finds a solution so next time they dont drop a new phone and a new OS without testing them first.

 

i liked the phone, and i like my car but i could not enjoy them both

Re: 9900 Bluetooth locking up phone when pairing with 2011 BMW

Greetings from germany

 

The same kind of problems, my new 330d an my brandnew 9900 don´t work, freezing and stopping calls, I´ve tried every option, I could find, without any effects. No need to say, that my old 9700 worked without any problems

 

Did anyone hear something new about this problem, or does RIM react in any way?

 

P.S.: My provider blames BMW, BMW blames....(you all know the rest of the story)

Isn't this a Blackberry Support website!!  Where are they and how come we have no response from Support.

 

Enough is enough - the least RIM could so is acknowledge the issue and provide some update?

Re: 9900 Bluetooth locking up phone when pairing with 2011 BMW

I found a simple workaround that works on my BMW and 9900 but I believe it will work for all.
1. Delete the pairing completely from your BMW
2. Delete the pairing completely from your 9900
3. On the 9900 go to Networks and Connections > Bluetooth Connections > Options --- and disable ALL the bluetooth services EXCEPT Handsfree.
4. Perform a new pairing with the car.
5. Voila. The contacts will load and the Bluettooth pairing will be flawless. Have been test driving it for two weeks now to make sure, before posting.

Upside: Battery life improves.
Downside: Cannot use other bluetooth services that are not "Handsfree". So if you are using the 9900 as your Bluetooth modem or something this may not work for you.

Hope that helps.

Re: 9900 Bluetooth locking up phone when pairing with 2011 BMW

personally i think RIM needs to improve their services otherwise they might end up slowly on the down stream, look at the problems and issue they are facing with their network, i for an example seriously thinking to go iphone and that is the opinion of many others.

 

so can RIM wake up and start addressing issues they either never thought about or giving the deaf ear thinking people dont have a choice.

 

surprises are on the way
