My blackberry 9900(os 7.1 bundle 2108) will not stay paired with new vehicle we just purchased. I have to set it up each time the phone disconnects from the car, or vehicle turns off, etc. I've deleted and re-paired a number of times, updated software to most recent version and still no good. Any suggestions out there?

From your Bluetooth settings on your BlackBerry smartphone, press the menu key then choose Options. Make sure the Connect On Power Up check box is marked. Press the back button then choose save. Next, click on your car under Paired Devices then choose Device Properties. Ensure your car appears as a trusted device.
Let me know if this works for you.

Downgrading the software will not likely help. We also recommend using the latest version of software available.
Have you tried completely removing the car from your list of Bluetooth devices then re-adding it?

So installing 7.0 from what my bold came with 7.1 work and I can now pair my BB bold with the 2013 kia sorento. Don't understand why I needed to do this as now my BB dos not have things like "mobile hotspot" but it work. Can anyone tell me why? is this a Kia problem or BB?

I have the same issue with BB Curve and my 2013 Sorento bluetooth system. They both connect each time I setup te connection but I leave the vehicule and come back, they can't connect anymore. Each time, I have to delete the connection on both system and setup the connection. I've made some tests with the KIA car dealer. We have tried two differents phones with my BB. No issue on connecting with the two other phone and mine was always not been able to connect. Bui, I push the test farter by doing the same test on a other Sorento and a Rondo, the connection work fine every time with my phone. I even made the test my wife phone (HTC) and it works very fine.
So, the big question is, why my connection from my BB and my Sorento doesn't work and all for 3 differents phones the connection works ?
P.S. : For sure, my car dealer say that the problem come from my phone !!
Please, I need help !!
thank you !!
