Verizon RAZR - Now Available

The RAZR is available today online and will be in select stores on the 12th. I know RAZRs from other providers are on the approved list, does that automatically mean it will be approved through Verizon to integrate with the bluetooth in the car?

I have a RAZR through T-mobile and the BMW website does not list the RAZR under T-mobile, but my new phone works great with the car.

You should have no trouble with the bluetooth. the bluetooth is provided throught the phone not the carrier.

Does the phone book work properly? For example, does voice dailing from your car (not your phone) work correctly? Do the 'home', 'work', 'mobile' tags show up properly in your e90 phone book as well? I may return my new E815 if the answer is yes.

well, this is only partially true. the provider does have a say when it comes to those features and verizon took the liberty of using that for its own good. they disabled the OBEX on all their phones making everyone use their paid service that doesn't even remotely offer the convenience of using the same functions using bluetooth (file transfer, mainly). but since all their other bluetooth phones work with most cars, RAZR should be no exception.

Looked at tonight @ Verizon...real phone. Nice, but not worth the money. Plus I am not so certain I am ready to commit to a total digital phone yet. I still need a tri-mode and supposedly Verizon is bringing back the V710.

I doubt that is true considering the E815 is the upgraded version of the V710. Verizon/Motorola supposedly fixed all the problems with the V710 and released the new version as the E815.

Anyway, for anyone who is wondering the Verizon RAZR is fully functional with the (no idrive) car.

Rinalds,

Thanks for the update on the RAZR. Does it have the disconnect issue like the E815? If not, I plan to have Verizon exchange the E815 for the RAZR.

Yes, it has the same problems. When I first took the RAZR out there my phone (the E815) wasn't connecting and the car wouldn't find the RAZR either to try and make the initial pairing. I was running some errands and I left my phone in the car everytime I got out to try and "wake" it up. On the 3rd try my phone connected so I disconnected the E815 and paired up the RAZR (not sure what happens if you have to bluetooth phones on and paired with the car at the same time). It worked exactly like the E815 does, when it connects. Still has the spotty connecting issue though.

It is definitely a problem with the car's software. This is the third phone I have paired only to result in spotty connection with all of them.
