    Hi all,
    After doing a search for Bluetooth and reading everything, I still can't find the answer to my question. I have a 2006 Acura TL with the integrated BT system. I've paired many a phone to this car over the years so I'm totally familiar with that process. I have successfully "paired" my Eris with the car. As a side note, I have the Bluetooth widget on my Eris main screen and it's almost always toggled on.

    The question: When I get into my car, the phone does automatically sync up... so that's all good. But, when I pick up my phone and dial a number I expect the Eris to transfer the sound to the car speakers. It doesn't. I have to select Menu > Bluetooth On and then it transfers. So the phone is "paired" and Eris BT is on... shouldn't it automagically transfer the call to the car?

    Every phone I've ever had has done this. Am I missing something? If I'm not, is there an app that will do it?

    I get little quirks with Bluetooth on my phone too. I have a few devices that I use and with some the bluetooth on the phone must be on before the ear piece and with others the ear piece must be on first. No idea why.

    If it is possible, you may want to try out different orders of connecting and see if that improves you connection.
