U-connect with Nextel
I love the Uconnect in my car, but I am trying not to have to sign up for and carry another phone. Plus, the Nextel is paid for by work, which is what 98 percent of my phone calls are anyway.
Nextel doesn't have any Bluetooth phones I know of currently. They are shortly launching a new phone called the i930, I can't find anything on it being Bluetooth enabled, but it does run MS smartphone OS and it has an SDIO slot on it. The question is does anyone know if I can get a Bluetooth SD card and make a make a smartphone work with Uconnect?
It would certainly make my life a lot easier.
Thanks in advance,
I'm aalso waiting for Nextel's bluetooth phone. THey launch new phones every 1/4. For some reason, they always seem to be behind the curve. They just put out a new phone this week, not bluetooth however. Hopefully soon. I'm anxious for one.
Enjoying the Ride!
we are in the same boat.....we have called and called and complained and so forth. Please call them and do the same.
Not that I know anything specific, but somewhere (probalby phone scoop or howard's forums) I read that the treo (non-bluetooth) and adding the bluetooth SD card didn't work with the handset setup with most cars. It might have been the bluetooth SD thing or just lack of software on the treo. Either way it didn't leave me with a lot of confidnece on adding bluetooth to a device.
Yeah, to add bluetooth to a PC with the USB dongle and get the sound working is different than for a smartphone. Smartphone's usually have seperate dedicated circuitry where the audio signals never go near the CPU running windows mobile. What might work though is a bluetooth headset adapter which will at least give your sound over the uconnect.
I just looked up that adapter and almost crapped my pants... http://www.cellularking.com/Merchant...gory_Code=HEAD
this integrates motorola phones to the bluetooth!
Even better, it looks like a Nextel Bluetooth phone is in the works. This is a link to the FCC site for an i605 phone, which if you look at the user manual is bluetooth enabled. I also read somewhere that the soon to be launched i930 also has Bluetooth.
