I just purchased a 2001 S500 Designio. It's my first benz and after reading all the negative comments about it's reliability...I'm worried!

Either way, my question is that the car did not come with a cell phone and i wonder if anyone knows what kind the 2001 S500 came with?

Thank you for your time...

I believe it's a Motorola Timeport phone but I can be mistaken. Try an eBay - or eBay Motors - search for S-Class phones.

You can also upgrade the phone to a much better one with a mik box. I bought and installed mine last year and I'm using one of the newest motorola phones and it's great. I highly recommend buying a mikbox. Their url is as follows:

Good Luck!

Installing the MikBox isn't hard. See http://www.benzworld.org/publications/pub.asp?id=317

Hi

Original phone that came with your car was Motorola Timeport but it is very outdated piece of hardware [;)].
Try MikBox.
I am still working on integration of my V710 w/ MikBox and have some issues. Cannot tell for sure if its a MikBox or internal problems... (ougoing voice cannot be heard but worked fine before).

Good luck

I installed the v710 and also had some issues at first. The issues were with my car and not the mikbox. I did have a problem with the cradle that Mik sent. Once that was identified, Mik sent a new one right away. For those of you who installed your mikbox some time ago, new firmware will be available soon.
