Complaints on the 6165

I wrote a review of the phone, but ran out of space before I got to the complaints. And they don't let you post two reviews. Confused So I continue here.

My biggest complaint is that, when the phone rings, the caller id info is not shown on the mini-display. You have to open the fold to see who is calling. I like to have opening automatically answer, though, so it is too late to screen. I know this sounds ridiculous and I must not have the options set right.

My 6165i works with my Parrot CK3100 carkit. This took a reflash up to the latest firmware to make work.

Before the firmware update, the CK3100 would not pair with the 6165i.

I don't have an Acura, but it works fine with the hands-free system in my Toyota 4Runner. The only problem is that the Toyota is willing to accept a download of the address book from the phone, but there isn't a way to send it.

I also use bluetooth with the PCSync feature, and it works very well. And the Sync software is excellent. Much better than I expected.
