Default bluetooth - Nextel direct connect

Please Login to Remove!

I have a new pioneer car stereo and the bluetooth adapter that they just released for it. I can get my 7100i to connect to the unit and make and answer phone calls but it doesnt work with direct connect. I didnt know what to expect with that feature, but its essentially unusable when its paired with the stereo. The phone will beep if someone calls me, but I dont get any voice over the phone or the car speakers, I can press the button and beep back, but if I talk into the phone or into the stereo microphone they cant hear anything.

Is there a way to make bluetooth active for phone calls only or is it all or nothing?

Thanks
Dustin

I have this question too. My i870 on Nextel worked my Car's handsfree with Direct Connect. I had to press the button to speak but it did go over the car's speakers.

Does the 7100i not do this?

As a follow up. My Direct Connect does not even work with the handset when connected to the Car Kit in my Infiniti M45.

Same with me, I have to un-pair the phone from the car kit to use direct connect.

Anyone know anything about this??

I'd like to see if there's any answers on this one too.....I'm in the same boat with the 7100i.

Thanks to anyone in advance,
Erik

Actually, I had a visor mounted Bluetooth Handsfree Kit I bought from Target. I can't remember the Brand name, but it did work with Direct Connect on my 7100i.
