v505 works with Cingular? and bluetooth profile question...

Are there any compatibility issues with this phone and Cingular's network? I saw on Amazon that this phone is still listed (for -$150!!) as an AT&T phone and I'm wondering why its not listed as a Cingular phone. Any comments on its performance on the new Cingular would be appreciated.

Also, I can't find anywhere what Bluetooth functions this phone supports. I assume it supports Handsfree Profile. Does it support Object Push Profile? I'm trying to figure out whether it is compatible with my car....

Thanks in advance for any help.

V505 Non Bluetooth Hands Free Question

Ok- Just Got the V505 1 Week Ago. Specs on phone scoop state the hands free is a 2.5mm jack. Sales person at ATT sold me a starter kit for Motorola (V180 & V220) he said it was compatible. Question: I dont think the handsfree jack for the V505 is 2.5 mm; do I need an adapter? I have not been able to find a handsfree (non bluetooth) to fit; everything I have found seems to be the 2.5mm single/straight plug type. Can you advise?

Can you send your entire contact list from outlook at once using bluetooth?

I have a Motorola V600 and although it had bluetooth I could not figure out how to send my entire contact list from my pc to my phone at one time. I had to send one number at a time which got kind of old since I have over a hundred numbers.

I recently ordered a v505 so am I missing something. Is there a way to send all my contacts at once via bluetooth???

How the hell do I get this bluetooth to work? I turn it on by going to the setup then power on, but when my brothers Sony Ericsson T630 tries to send me something it doesn't seem to connect to it. Also, can I send stuff via bluetooth because it doesn't seem like it. Help?

USB Bluetooth Device for a PC Connection

I just received two V505's for my wife and myself and am quite pleased so far. I was wondering if I can get some suggestions as to brands of USB Bluetooth devices, for a PC connection, that have worked well with other V505 owners? I'd like to use Bluetooth for transferring ringtones, pictures, and Outlook Calendar entries.

phonebook loses #s

So I've had this phone more then 30 days now - and my only complaint is that it has lost 2 numbers, one very important.

I enter a number and name - store it to the phone (not the SIM card) - all seems successful. Then upon trying to retrieve it, the number isn't there. Totally disappeared without a trace...not sure if anybody else has seen this or if my phone DB is corrupted or sth?

How to keep it on vibrate?

Can someone please tell me how to keep this phone on vibrate after I pair it to a SE HBH-35 Bluetooth headset?

Everytime I power on the phone, I have to re-pair it to the headset. When I do the ringer is set to loud. This also happens when the headset is unplugged from the charger and the V505 "recognizes" the device again.

Which leads me to another question, how do I get it to "remember" the pairing when I turn it back on?

Motorola v500

Greetings all.
At long last I have decided NOT to buy the NEC 616v but get the Motorola v500 instead. Good call I may hear you say. Laughing

My only problem is to do with the need to use this phone in both England and Norway. So my question is, is there any place in the uk that can do a remote unlock for this phone which does not cost more than £15?

My other question is, I have seen people talk about v505. What is that?

For sale at AT&T now...

I saw this phone for sale at an AT&T store in Newport Beach, CA today. I couldn't get a salesperson to help me so I left, but they had a demo model on the floor.

Really bigger than the V600?

I haven't seen them next to each other but this phone looks smaller/more streamlined to me. Phonescoop stats say it's actually bigger? Are my eyes deceiving me?
