Seeking some real-world PDA / Bluetooth compatibility advice
I was hoping to wait until my car arrives to replace my aging PDA cell phone, but my PDA died this week. I've read various posts about Bluetooth pairing problems, then other posts about pairing but not allowing certain features (mostly address book downloads). Then I've read other posts saying the MBUSA website has all the answers. But others say that this list is not entirely accurate and may not be current. So, I'm seeking some real-world advice from PDA users.
I need a PDA - no way to get around that. From the MBUSA website, it appears that no PDA is 100% compatible with all W204 Bluetooth features. But since there are PDAs being sold that are not on that list, have any of you found any PDAs that will at least allow the address-book download - and hopefully most if not all other features? And as stated before, I'm aware of the MBUSA list - but cellphone technology and models change daily. So I'm hoping that maybe one of you has found a PDA that does it all (especially address book downloads).
For the first time, I saw and used an iPhone this week. I'm in love with it, but it appears that there's no way to get the address book to download. Even the Apple Store sales people knew about this - but said that, should I get a BMW, the address book will fully download. AARRRGGGHHH.
Thank you for any real-world advice you might be able to provide. Only about 45 days and counting until the C350 arrives! And that new cartoon of Brian the 'dog' is to express my PDA compatibility frustration.
