Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info

anyone managed to get this working with a Sony Ericsson P900??

Mine goes through the pairing process - to the point where I enter the PIN and the phone says 'bonding complete' and P900 appears on the car's multifunction display. However, if I try and do anything from there, it just says 'no phone connected' and sends me an angry beep.

It doesn't say complete on the screen or ask about the phonebook, but does say P900.

Any ideas?

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info

Two quick questions:

1. How do I find the pin number to connect my phone to Blue & Me? Is it the radio code?

2. My iPod only plays WMA songs, not ones saved in Apple format. Is this right?

Thanks.

1. Press the phone key while parked up, go to settings and then pairing. Your Blue&Me Biatch will tell you to scan on your phone for new devices and then display the pin on your LCD Display. Once your phone finds "Blue&Me" try and pair it and it will ask for the pin just type it in and then its done . It may then try to copy your phone book its hit or miss weither it works or not. Works perfect on my Sony Erricson W800i

2. Yes only files it will play are Mp3 and WMA not dirty Apple format.

Hope that helps

Got into my GP on Wednesday night and tried to use the phone "searching for connection, try again later" it would not play at any price, tried everything to no avail.
Friday night sat in the car tried pairing and it worked like aa dream!, Fiat electrickery or Windows jiggerypokery??

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info

I'd agree with Chris on the fact that the pairing seems to expire after a certain amount of time. I didn't use mine for a while because I was away and then had to do the pairing again. That makes about the fourth time!

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info

I have the bluetooth phone system (not blue & me) and for months it has been totally pissing me off while using it with my Sony Ericsson K750i cos it would only work when it wants to. So many of times I've went to phone someone only to be greeted by the women saying 'searching for connection....'. Annoying as hell!!!

Now I've got the new K800i it works like a dream and have had no bother at all. It now works like it should do. Obviously it was some kind of compatibility issue. Perhaps if there was more support available people like me wouldn't have had to suffer for so long!

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info

Did you do any updates on your k750?
Early versions of the firmware were full of problems regarding bluetooth but the problems were fixed with the updates.

Absolutely I did! I'm a fan of keeping my firmware as up to date as possible which I have done so. It worked a lot better at the start but now ot's just frustrating. Because I now know how well it works with the K800i, it really puts it into context hoe poor and unreliable the K750i was for me.

Anyone else had problems with the K750i bluetooth?

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info

It's always personal choice but I won't use Sony-Erricson phones. Ever since they were Erricson were taken over by Sony, they seem to be marketing led and rush to get stuff out there. Bluetooth sync with a computer always a problem, some not sending texts, some keyboards failing. I had nothing but trouble with them having been an Erricson fan for years with no problem. Please don't all write and say yours is great though, they seem to be getting a bit better now. You shouldn't really be forced to upgrade software to get it to work, they should have got it right before going to market. Hmm, shades of Microsoft.........

Trust me any problems will have something to do with the car as well as the phone. Microsoft not sticking strictly to the RFC spec for Bluetooth etc will be the main problem. But yeah things should be researched properly before releasing a phone.

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info

just a post to say I picked up a Sony Ericsson P990 today and - in contrast to my P900 - all seems to be working sweetly. I've not yet had opportunity to try the message reader out as I've not had any texts... but all else went smoothly. Oh, apart from the update, that is, but I think I read somewhere that there maybe isn't one yet? The lady said something about server error...
