The only issue is the transfer of the address book; SOME of my contacts transfer to the car, while others arbitrarily do not. For example, any contact whose name starts with O, Q, U, and Y just does not transfer, and when looking at the Bluetooth screen in my BMW, I have the option of choosing my contacts A-Z, but the aforementioned letters are just not available.
Any advice? I thought perhaps there was some sort of limit on how many contacts could transfer to the car, but then why are only certain (and seemingly arbitrary) letters not transferring? I also had this issue with a Blackberry 7100i on Nextel. Thanks in advance!
UPDATE: I got off the phone with a friendly (and seemingly very knowledge) BMW support agent, who informed me that the reason this could be occurring is that there is a limit of 1000 contacts PER GROUP that can transfer to the car. Since all my contacts are ungrouped (or rather, in one group) I have over 1,000, and he suggested if I split them up into groups it should work. Does this make sense? It doesn't to me, as why would random letters not be transferring, as opposed to transferring the first 1,000 contacts and then just stopping after that?
Thanks for the info. Working with a lawyer at the office and I bet that's his problem.
After transferring his AB to the car you see this for the "letters"
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P...S
No Q R or any letters after S.
