Re: Torch 9810 bluetooth doesn't work with BMW car

Thanks. My carrier (AT&T) has latest version as bundle 2404 according to website (and also when I download "latest version"). I assume you are on a different carrier ?

Thanks

Re: Torch 9810 bluetooth doesn't work with BMW car

I am on AT&T, and the 2404 update is the bundle that fixed my issues. I did completely delete the pairing from my phone and car and then re-pair. That seemed to do the trick.

Re: Torch 9810 bluetooth doesn't work with BMW car

Hmm. I had deleted the pairing and then reestablihsed it but that was before I had downloaded the latest version (2404 in my case). So maybe I will try that again and see if that does the trick. Otherwise I will do a ceremenonial dance and chant incantations. Failing that I appear to be out of options.

 

Thanks for the help ...

Re: Torch 9810 bluetooth doesn't work with BMW car

No luck on this ..

 

I have done the following little experiment :

 

1)     Delete Bluetooth phones in BMW and "find" and establish connectivity with my old BlackBerry 9800 (after having removed and re-configured). The Bluetooth connectivity works fine – can read phone book etc. and it will dial a call (except being my old Torch I no longer has the AT&T connection so call does not proceed). However Bluetooth connectivity seems fine and holds over time

 

2)     Do exactly the same with my Blackberry 9810. Per my previous messages, the BB9810/BMW connection goes away after approx. 5 minutes and hangs up my 9810 phone.

 

For the record :

Blackberry 9800 : Software v 6.0 bundle 695 (v 6.0.0.246, platform 6.4.0.105)

Blackberry 9810 : Software v 7.0 bundle 2404 (v7.0.0.583, Platform 5.0.0.736)

 

At this point I don’t see any way out of this (beyond the obvious replace BB9810 with iPhone or Droid ..).

 

ANy other suggestions are welcome !

Re: Torch 9810 bluetooth doesn't work with BMW car

So it seems that the OS upgrade was a false alarm. After a few days, I started getting more dropped connections.

 

On another board, I read people having similar issues with the Bold 9900, and a BMW dealer had said it was actually an issue on the BMW side with trying to download too many messages.

 

So,...I did a couple of things that seemed to have helped:

 

-- downloaded the newest BMW software upgrade (released in Dec, I think)

-- On my Torch, I disabled the it getting message. In the bluetooth connections menu, select MAP options and deselect everything

-- deleted and re-pair the phone

 

Did it this morning, and so far have been able to conduct two long phone calls without any issues! Granted, I can't see my email in the console, but I'll settle for phone calls.

 

Hope that helps!
