Default Transfer contacts from 8700v to Mercedes Bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

I hope somebody can help, I have a Mercedes with a COMAND which has a Bluetooth connection for telephone.

I have paired to my blackberry 8700v but I can't transfer contacts or business cards to the handsfree via Bluetooth. In my bluetooth options I have selected "all entries" for address book transfer but in my address book there is no option to actually send the contact(s) via bluetooth.

Any suggestions or help you have would be grealy received.

Thanks
Philip

On your Blackberry:
1) Applications
2) Options
3) Bluetooth
4) MB Bluetooth (thats on my C300 but yours could say something else)
5) Select " Transfer addressbook" this should transfer all contact to the Benz
6) you can narrow down the transfers by going in to the "options"

If your car has an aux in you can also use the headphone jack to play MP3 and gps nav instructions via your stereo (I cheaped out of the MB nav system) the only problem is that it disables the ability to make calls via BT.

I am hoping that others have a solution for that

Thanks very much for your reply to my message, however my Blackberry 8700 does not seem to have the option to Transfer addressbook:
1) Applications
2) Options
3) Bluetooth
4) MB Bluetooth

The only options I have here are:
1) Disable Bluetooth
2) Connect
3) Add Device
4) Delete Device
5) Device Properties
6) Options
7) Close

thanks

I had this problem on my own (I have a car with Bluetooth -Mercedes W204- and a BB 8820) and I was struggling with this for several months. I look everywhere on the internet with no answers and I found a lot of people with the same problem. However.... I think I FINALLY HAVE THE SOLUTION:

Here we go:

- On a bluetooth connection you have, basically, two components.
- You have the BB device and the car device.

The key is that the car that is able to receive address book transfers has TWO services:

1) hands free unit
2) Objects Push


The thing is that this TWO services cannot work together AT THE SAME TIME.

Normally, you have the car device activated as a "hands free unit", SO, when you attempt to transfer the address book, you receive the famous message "unable to locate object push server".

The one million dollar question is "how can you switch to "Objects push" mode ? Answer: go to Bluetooth, select your car device, open Options and press for "update list of services" and.... voilį!!! the description "hands free unit" will change to "objects push". At that time you will be able to transfer contacts (obviously setting your car device -in my case- to receive those contacts).

Be careful: once you finalized the transfer, you must deactive the car device for receiving contacts and, on your BB, update again the list of services to get your "hands free unit" again because, if not, you were possible will be having problems on connecting over the bluetooth (another common problem I saw in several posts).

And that“s it. It worked for me so, pleae try it and Enjoy!! By the way, you don“t need to update your OS....

Cheers from Argentina.
