I was trying to pair my Samsung Galaxy S8 and 2008 S550 with bluetooth. I stocked at the screen as on the picture:

I guess the car's bluetooth is dis-activated since I see the check-mark. However whatever I click with the Command knob brings no action. Search for Bluetooth devices is grey and not available. What should I do?

This is very confusing to owner of the pre-facelift W221. The Bluetooth you see is for "Privacy calls." I am sure you recall the Bluetooth headsets people used to wear around that had the flashing blue light on them? That is what this pairs with. Or a laptop (I assume to import vCards), but it will not pair with a phone without the Bluetooth module that is docked in the center console.

Tiffany, I don't have that module. Can I buy one? Will it give me full functionality for the cell phone and will I be able to place hands free calls similarly as modern Camry or Altima can?

As long as you have the connector in the console, you will be able to use the black Bluetooth model or Silver SLR-looking model available from your parts department or on eBay. Just follow the instructions in post #2 to pair.

I can't speak for the Camry or Altima; I have never been in neither.
