BB Pearl and Bluetooth Question

I'm new to forums and new to Blackberry so I was happy to see a new site.  I've kind of been a lurker on some of the other BB sites but you guys are all way too advanced for me!!  I was hoping to see if anyone has experienced this strange little quirk.  Every time I've gotten near my car for the last several days my phone dials the last number I had previously called.  At first I thought I was just accidentally hitting the redial but today - I purposely held the phone out and watched it - and sure enough it started dialing on it's own.  This did not make my son happy when it called him at 6 am this morning!  Have you ever had this happen and if so - any clues as to how to make it stop other than not turning the phone on in the car?  Thanks in advance for the help!

If its a pairing issue (corrupt data) try deleting your current pairing info and reconfiguring it.

Wow!  That is odd.  So this happens every time you get into your car?  Same time of the day?  Or all the time you get near it?

Re: BB Pearl and Bluetooth Question

Every time I get near the car - don't even have to get in it!  I've had it for about three months and it just started doing this the last few days. It is pretty weird!  I've tried pulling the battery (didn't know if that would work but it seems to be a suggestion for most problems so I thought I would try it) no luck!

Re: BB Pearl and Bluetooth Question

What kind of car do you have?  Does it have built in bluetooth?

Yes, the bluetooth is built in - it's a BMW.

I just read somewhere that it could be taken care of by BMW.  There is a service bulletin regarding bluetooth on BMW's.  Call you dealer and see what they say.

Sorry, been out of town!  Thanks for the advice - I took it in and they fixed it.  Quirky!
