When I try to pair the Pearl with the car it can't find anything to pair with. I have updated the OS to the latest version available but it still can't find the car. I have heard rumours of a 5.0 OS but I have not yet seen this with the Pearl.
Looking at bluetooth specification comparisons between the Bold and the Pearl the only difference I have found appears to be that the Bold can be used as an AV remote control however clearly there are other differences.
What I am looking for is a way to pair my Pearl with the car. I notice that in the device properties for my Bold that it sues the Phone Access Server profile to connect to the car - is this profile supported on the Pearl?
I note from ththe Blackberry website that BBs should be able to pair with every BMW with bluetooth / assist (I had included a link but I can't post it due to my low count).
Can any of you guru's help me to pair my Pearl?
Any advice appreciated.
hi, I have tried 3 pearls so far (8100, 8110, 8120) and they all work perfect.
what car do you have?
