2007 335i Bluetooth with Treo

After about 6 months of trying to figure out why my Palm Treo 700p sometimes acts funky in my 335i, I think i found a way to correct it when it does.
Problem I was having was my treo would pair fine but would act funny at times, the major problem was that it would always mute the radio, but sometimes i couldn't use the hands-free or hear the phone through the speakers. i found that incoming calls would normally work fine but when i dialed out i had to use the handset.
by trial and error i found that i could reset it to work properly by:
1. turn car off, remove key 2. turn off bluetooth on treo 3. reset/reboot treo by removing the battery, wait for it to fully restart 4. turn on bluetooth on treo 5. start car
i tried while driving by turning off bluetooth in the car and then going through steps 2-4 and found it sometimes works, but its worth a try when i'm on the highway and don't want to pull over just deal with my treo.
i think that most of the problems occur after i sync my treo with my pc (i'm not convinced yet that its the only time), something must get reset in the process - so now i just go through steps 2-4 after each sync and things seem to be working fine
hope this helps anyone with a similar problem!

Thanks for the info. Question........... is the phone 100% compatible with the BMW bluetooth as many are not 100% and have limited functionality.
Check on BMW's web site for compatibility.

no, it's not listed as compatible - i think sprint has a patch for their version, but verizon does not

I had a treo 650 and drive a 550i. It worked consistently, but slow. And the address book only gave me the speed dial numbers.
I recently (and reluctantly) switched to a T-Mobile DASH. it links consistently and quickly, and gives me my entire address book (up to 1,500 names)
May not be what you want to hear, but the Palm OS is a reluctant traveler with BMW. Frankly, I was shocked at the gyrations the OP went through to get a link...
