I'd go with the COMAND software being an older version - they should have fixed that when they supplied the puck, of course, but they sound like spanner people not software people.
I must say I don't find the Crackberry the world's finest Bluetooth device, and this seems to be a problem between what it wants to do, and what the pairing partner asks of it. Different laptops, for example, will pair differently with the same Blackberry because their Blackberry drivers have different capability profiles. One laptop makes my Blackberry Bold lock up so completely I have to take the battery out to get it to respond again, if I try to pair them with Bluetooth. Yet, my old Kenwood add-on stereo in the E55 used to pair with every phone perfectly, first time every time...
I wish MB would let third parties make UHI cradles. I'd far rather have the BB or the iPhone fully connected and charging, as well as passing through the car's aerial systems, than use crappy old Bluetooth. it also seems kind of weird that we can't use our Bluetooth phone as a substitute Keyless Go device...!
