Re: Sony ericsson 902

Have you got the message reader installed?, as this was an update on early Blue&Me systems.

Had similar problems with a pair of W595s in a pair of Bravos. Both didn't work - one with the screen protector and one without so in my case, its a red herring I think.

Let me know how you proceed though.

Unhappy Re: Sony Ericsson c905

Hi guys,

I just upgraded to a Sony Ericsson c905 this weekend and while the message reader works a treat , the sound quality on a call is shocking.

I've tried pairing my new c905 with a normal bluetooth headset and that works fine, nice and clear audio, so it must be an incompatibility with the blue&me system rather than a general phone fault.

The phonebook also failed to transfer, and sometimes the blue&me will say its disconnected while the c905 will say its still connected. In this scenario, any incoming calls are redirected to the blue&me, but because the blue&me thinks its disconnected I don't hear anything. This can also cause the phone to slow right down (like a 10 second delay to open a menu), or worse has caused it crash completely as well.

I hope theres a solution out there... I don't want to have to give up my nice new shiny c905 :-(

Anyone got any ideas?

Tom.

The problem definitely seems to be spreading. Its a shame because SE's are the most compatible phones but they're now fast becoming quite incompatible. The W595 behaves the same so I had to rush out and buy a pair of cheap PAYG handsets (K530s) which work fine (as did our previous K800 and Z610).

I'm tempted to hold on to the W595's just in case there's a Blue&Me update round the corner which fixes things.

Re: Sony ericsson 902

I wondered if it might be an issue with the modern SE phones having stereo bluetooth capability? Could the phones be 'emitting' stereo, but Blue&Me is only mono, so only catches every other packet, or something like that? I can't see any settings on my C905 to confirm whether its mono or stereo though...

Re: Sony ericsson 905 & 902

Hi Guys

Its a software update issue with these phones the early 902's works fine and if you have a C 902 working well, for gods sake don't try to upgrade it from the sony Erickson site this will put the latest software version on your phone making a huge distortion noise (rather like some one keying an old fashioned type writer) best way I can describe it.
Ps my C905 went back due to this plus connection issues Sorry for the bad news guys

PPS spoke to Fiat UK today no Blue & Me updates available yet guys I did state this needs addressing so we don't have to use outdated mobiles

Regards Kelvin

Thanks for the update Kelvin. Your description of the noise is fairly accurate and not dissimilar to someone banging around in a tin can. For us, the Z610 and K800 worked perfectly. K530 works well but there is some slight interference. The W595's we have behave in the same way as the later 902 and the 905. Strange in that the W595 paired OK, address book transferred fine and the message reader even worked perfectly. Just the bloody voice didn't work!

I'd rather not sell the W595's if there is an update which will solve the problem (I figured that £50 for a pay as you go handset is a small percentage of a car with a list price not shy of £17k!). Lucky for you you could return your handset - we had no such luck and as you've read, had to buy PAYG handsets.

Let's hope Fiat come up with something soon.

Cheers,
Mike

Re: Sony ericsson 902

Yeah lets hope so!

Does anyone know how we can bring this issue to Fiat's attention? From my experience all their garages are clueless about blue&me, the online chat thing on their website is manned by equally clueless people, and I haven't yet found a way of reporting blue&me bugs!

How can such a multi-national company release such a complex IT product in their cars and not offer any kind of support or any kind of feedback mechanism? Its crazy!

The eco-drive feature is nice, but I'm fairly sure we'd all prefer that their engineers spent the time releasing updates to keep up with modern handsets, rather than spend time with gimmicky applications like that! So frustrating!

Try erasing all the old blueme memory of all phone data... then try from scratch by pairing your phone again..
my 902 works fine and msg reader.. its worth trying it again if you haven`t already.

Re: Sony ericsson 902

How do I do this? Is there a menu option to erase all existing phone data?

Useful information here on software versions.

Might be worth starting a sticky with known good/problematic Sony Ericsson models and their software versions.
