- I have a new BB 8100 and am having problems Bluetooth pairing to a 2007 Infiniti G35 w/ navigation. I've removed device pairing from both phone and car twice...problem not solved. The car will initially pair w/ the BB, but then randomly lose the connection, or not recognize the phone ("no phone available"). I've checked another BB 8100 in this car...same problem exactly; I've checked a Motorola Razor in this car...Bluetooth works fine.05-25-07 07:59 PM

Also, on the Razr, if it's an old one, maybe it's running Bluetooth 1.1 (or something like that) where it's compatible, and maybe the 8100 is running a new version of Bluetooth, thus causing issues...
Check the cars website for a possible firmware update / fix...05-25-07 08:10 PM
- Update...Infiniti was baffled that the BB 8100 wouldn't pair with the G35, but it wouldn't...at least not consistently. I was still within the 30 days AT&T allows for returns. Took the phone back to the retail store last Friday (6/1) and swapped out the 8100 for my new Curve. The Bluetooth now works great in the car...EVERYTIME! By the way, the Curve is my 3rd BB in 5 years and the best one I've owned. Feels great in your hand, awesome screen, full keyboard, fits in my shirt pocket, phone clarity is perfect...no complaints! I'm a way happy BB dude...again!06-06-07 08:19 PM
