Default Lexus address book transfer

Please Login to Remove!

After weeks of trying, I have been able to transfer my address book from my BB 8700 to my Lexus IS 250.

Details:

BB 8700 v4.2.1.85 (Platform 2.3.0.67)
2007 Lexus IS 250 (Nav version 6.1)

Assumptions:

Your phone is already paired to the car
You have selected the phone as the active phone in the car's settings
The car is running
You are parked
You are running at least the version listed above - there were issues with previous versions

Directions:

To start the address book transfer, go to Phone (using the steering wheel off-hook button), select Settings, select Phone Book, select "Transfer Phonebook" and choose the group you would like to put the contacts in.

Your BB will loose it's connection to the car. I always thought this was a problem, and it was because of an error, but this is expected. When you loose connection it means the car is ready to accept the transfer.

From your BB, go to Options, select Bluetooth, and you will see the car as a paired device, click your scroll wheel, and choose Transfer Address Book.

The BB will re-establish the bluetooth connection, and then negotiate the address book transfer.

You will now have your address book transfered to your car.

Hope this helps!
