Verizon XV5800 (or SMT5800) appears to be fully compatible:
  • Pairs up just fine
  • Full address book download. Address book stays current with phone
  • Great voice quality
  • Conversations originated on handset can be continued on car phone by selecting "Turn on handsfree" from the phone after you enter the car.

All in all, seems great. This is a verizon private label version of an HTC phone, so I suspect the BT stack is shared and will work with many other HTC phones (e.g. t-mobile dash)

Works on my e92. Full compatability. Your car being an 06 may need a progman update, but they will not do this for the Dare since it is not a BMW approved phone.

Yup..

I have had two progman updates since getting the car, but no way to tell. I'll just have to run over to Verizon and try it out..

Thanks

Verizon LG Decoy appears to be fully compatible w/my '08 e92. Address book downloads fine, and everything else (calls, signal strength, etc) work. Haven't tried swapping a call from the car to the phone yet, but everything else works fine.

so thumbs up form me.

The nokia was a 6021(business phone). it worked with the earlier version, I have to admit I've not tried it with the new version, but I never wanted the BT for work, just for me

Just as a matter of interest, on the BMW list where it states limited compatibility - how limited is limited?
As an aside most of the phones on the list aren't even being sold nowadays

so you have an insider that got you a preview before public release? As for G1, I'm AT&T Blue pre-merger, so I'm using an unlocked iPhone as well as other phones I rotate through when I'm bored. Waiting on the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1

Ive had the g1 for days, extremely slow on edge but fun phone nevertheless. I know some other people who had theirs before i did, probably not hard.

Ah! I didn't realise the fin aerial was bluetooth connected had assumed it was hard wired from the phone adapter within the armrest. I had thought the only bluetooth connectivity was between the radio and the phone

I think the fin aerial is for the satellite navigation system.

Both the navigation antenna and the phone antenna is housed in the fin.
The radio's antenna is in the rear window.

I believe all antennas are located in the fin. They don't put in the rear window any longer.
