I spend a lot of time in my car and this is crucial! I have never had any issues with my 8700 and the bluetooth connectivity.
Any suggestions or thoughts before I send this BB back to the store?
Thanks for your help.
I am sorry to hear that you are having connection issues between the Range Rover and the BB8800.
I have a 2006 RR Sport and had to manually connect the Pearl and the 8700 each time I entered the car by putting the RR as "NOT Trusted" and the Pearl and 8700 as "Not Discoverable". And only then, after I entered the car, went to "options, bluetooth, land rover, connect" would I get full functionality with the ability to use the keypad to dial out and for the car's speakers to handle/answer incoming calls. This was a major annoyance as my Motorola Razr always connected automatically and worked flawlessly.
However, with the BB8800 I have been pleasantly surprised. The phone connects automatically each time I enter the car and I have full functionality with the ability to use the keypad to dial out and/or to have the car's speakers answer the incoming calls.
Here are my settings for the BB8800:
Device Name: Blackberry 8800
Allow Outgoing Calls: Always
Address Book Transfer: Disabled
LED Connection Indicator: On
Here are my settings for the RR Sport:
Device Name: Land Rover
Echo Control: Enabled
Try setting your phone to these setting under: options, bluetooth, options. And then change the device properties under: options, bluetooth, device properties.
Best of luck.
