BT Paring Issue (Samsung S3)

It seems that Branded Samsung S3 are not compatible with BMW Telematics and Unbranded versions are.

I do not understand why this is. This has been discovered by my service centre who have raised the question with Samsung.

They cannot flash my current Vodaphone UK unlocked phone with unbranded software as it will invalidate my warranty so they have send a job report and have ask if they would offer an exemption in writing so my phone can be flashed or better still be offered a replacement unbranded phone.

The baseband version on the unbranded phone was different to the branded version and it was not running the latest baseband. On my branded phone it did not work either the latest or the previous firmware as they had another S3 on T-Mobile & O2 and they did not work either.

THEY "Samsung" must either offer me a new phone or allow current phone to be flash it is not right to be held a will to have a phone that cost me 300 plus a two year contract and I cannot get it to work.

The Faults:

The fault is to due with Contacts stored in Gmail. The car cannot pull down the contacts and store them and it causes the phone to disconnect and remove it profile after attempting several times.

If you set the phone to not download contacts from phone to car, the phone works perfectly with the car.

My T-Mobile branded S3 works fine with my E92. Small hiccup with the Jelly Bean update, but other than re-paring it, can't complain.

I've been flashing on new firmwares as soon as they came out, and still on ICS from a factory reset, it works fine.

Hi guys,

I had a Samsung Galaxy S3 (returned it for the iPhone 5) and thought that is was not compatible with my 2007 335i with IDrive. I found out that it does pair and work. I think the phones bluetooth is very week ass i could only get it to pair by holding it under my steering wheel. Even after I had it paired it would not connect unless I held it under the steering wheel. I think the unit in the car is fine as my iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 work perfect in it.

Just thought I would share what I found.

simonsingh, are you able to play music on your S3 with the audio transferred over bluetooth to the car's speakers?

Goofy, what phone kernel do you have and when you say it works, does that mean you can also play audio over bluetooth?
