Sprint PCS Bluetooth Phones that work with E90

Please anyone with Sprint service and using bluetooth share what phones work and what one do not. I have Sprint service at a great rate and need to buy a phone that will work with my new car coming. I have searched this site and the info is very slim for Sprint phones.

The only one ive actually heard that pairs is the Treo 650 but I posted earlier about 3 new samsung phones(not pdas) with bluetooth 940:already out
920: next week or so
900:soon after 920, hopefully both will be out by thanksgiving
This is quite a jump for sprint b/c before all there was was that lg slider (i tried w/ my car and the phonebook did not pair) and a sony ericsson phone that is impossible to get. I dont know if any of these new ones will pair but ill let you know as soon as i get one.

I saw an universal bluetooth adapter for any phone at sprints store. Does anyone know if this is compatible with our cars?

Well, you need to take a look at competitors phones and find the ones that are similar. If the Treo works for Verizon, it probably works for Cingular, and Sprint. Same goes for the Verizon VX6700 and the Cingular PPC6700...both are the same phones, different names.

There are reports at www.sprintusers.com that the Samsung A920 works (including contact list) with the latest updates on both the phone and the car.

I have also read that the Samsung A900 works for the most part, but the contact list will not update.

Address book as well? I think somone in the Sprint forums was writing that he was having trouble either answering or ending the call from the steering wheel buttons. But that could have been a firmware update or so ago.

I want this phone but I'm concerned about the battery life.

I got the Palm Treo 650 in preparation for my 330i coming in with the bluetooth/drive. However, I'm not too thrilled with it.

Anything out there for sprint that integrates nicely with blue tooth and address book?

Well,

Its been confirmed that the verizon XV6700 pairs with the car pretty nicely if your looking for a PDA phone. The model on sprints end would be the PPC-6700. Both models are pretty much the same, just used on different networks.

My Treo650 works good, althought it only shows the speed dial numbers, you can configure that to like 100+ numbers, its not the usual speed dial on regular phones. I would check the Treo700P though...
