It depends upon your service provider. I have Verizon and in looking for a new phone back in March, I found it nearly impossible to get either the dealer or Verizon to give any input. I finally got Verizon customer service to note my account and arrange for a store manager to spend the time with me one-on-one to test any and all phones in the store for compatibility. I tested absolutely every phone in their stock and found only BlackBerries and the Samsung Omnia to be fully compatible with my Bluetooth ie: consistent stable connection, flawless pairing and phonebook transfer. I actually found one of the service reps (extremely rare) that was VERY helpful and explained the Verizon cripples Bluetooth in their phones to limit file sharing and very few of the phones that they carry will actually allow a stable connection when pairing with BMWs. Hope this helps. I have a BB Storm and it pairs flawlessly every time.
