    My son just abandoned his V60 and Verizon for a T616
    and says he loves using his cell phone through his car's audio system
    via the factory installed Bluetooth of his Toyota Prius.

    He would have been happy to stay with Verizon had they had any bluetooth
    phone for sale.

    Sure is a terrific car!
    My Sprint T608 and my son's T610 both work fine in the Prius...

    Hi Michael Arends. King of foul language.

    Does the foul language help your career at Boeing?

    What a colorful (yet succinct) description of your post, Frau Himmel!

    I'm dumping four Verizon phones for this very reason. I have three
    cars in my family with bluetooth and am in the process of switching
    all four phones to AT&T. I would have liked to have stayed with
    Verizon, too.

    I dropped AT&T for Verizon.

    A phone that can't reliably make calls didn't do me any good.

    What kind of cars have bluetooth support? Are those 03-04 models generally?
    Mine is 01 Subaru and it doesn't have it.

    Acura, Lexus, Toyota, Chysler(Jeep), BMW all offer one or more models
    with bluetooth integration.

    Verizon seems to be not interested in participating.

    How do you dial in the Prius? The manual seems to say everything is disabled above 5 mph.

    I am on the road for 3-4 hours a day...only 30 minutes or so below 5 mph long enough to dial.

    I have to know by tomorrow morning to let the dealer know if I want the car.

    Thanks,

    David

    There are some 1-touch dial buttons that you can program, and you can
    use above the 5mph limit. But you cannot type in a number if you're
    over 5mph, or use the phonebook.

    Verizon will be launching its bluethooth handset in a couple of months from Motorola. Cingular has been begun launching only class 4 handsets which are the most powerful network handsets you and buyon GSM, half of them will be Bluetooth enable including a New and more powerful verison of the T616. All phone will be class 4 by the time CIngular & AT&T begun to use more than just the roaming agreement towers togeather. But if you are a Verizon Fan something is coming for you.

    I did the same with a Cingular Motorola V600. Works very well. I
    understand Verizon can't use GSM phones at this time and it is unlikely they
    will convert to GSM. Their protocol is not compatible with bluetooth. If
    they do, they will have to upgrade all their customers.

    Wrong... a CDMA phone can use Bluetooth. GSM is the connection between
    the phone and the cellular network, not between the phone and the car.

    Verizon should have 2 Bluetooth handsets out by the end of this year (and
    most likely one in a few weeks)- the Motorola V710 and the Nokia 6255i.
    These are CDMA handsets with the Bluetooth radio just like the GSM handsets
    that have been out for several years but they support the newest Bluetooth
    standard for extended talk times via lower battery consumption requirements.

    You can read more about both phones on www.phonescoop.com
