    I'm wondering if Phone Book Access Profile(PBAP) is supported on the Motorola Droid. I've read that Android 2.0 supports it but it is not listed as a supported profile on Motorola's website.

    Are there any menus to enable/disable profiles on the phone?

    I can't get contacts to transfer to the Parrot Handsfree Kit in my car.

    Thanks.

    Same problem with Mercedes-Benz bluetooth. No contacts, no recent calls.

    Same here. My new Motorola Droid will not transfer contacts to my BMW 128i. The G1 running Android 1.6 that I had prior to the Droid worked perfectly.

    Hopefully this problem will get resolved quickly.

    BMW 335 here, phone book does not transfer at all, can't even manually add contacts to the car because it is always attempting to transfer from the Droid the entire time i drive. My old EnV worked fine with this, so easy, this is a pain in the butt if I need to call out. THey need to edit the DROID DOES ads since it does NOT do this which is a bad mistake. HOPEFULLY they can update this soon.

    I was able to transfer my contacts into my car by starting the transfer from the radio itself. Once the transfer was initiated a popup appeared on the Droid asking if I wanted to allow phone book access.

    Did you check to see if there was a notification on the Droid? I noticed that the transfer didn't start until I actually allowed it via the notification on the droid.

    It appears as a bluetooth icon over on the upper left of the screen in the same area as text and email notifications. You have to pull the bar down, select it then hit the button to allow.

    Yes I checked that, nothing was there. Hopefully an update can come in the near future to correct this.

    A customer service rep at Motorola told me during a chat that the Droid does not have the Bluetooth profile that allows transfer of the contacts to the car. It can only be fixed by a Moto software update and she had no info on that...wonder if this week's update might include it ???

    After reading and reading all the forums, I FINALLY figured it out !! Go through the normal set up with the Bluetooth on and discovery, once you have that all set there is an additional step for the Droid. You need to pull down the little message window on the top of the Droid homescreen and "allow" the transfer and it works like magic. I have struggled for 2 mos to find the answer !! PLEASE let me know how it works for you.

    After getting into the circle of death, I found a solution that is less than optimal, but it does download contacts.

    I am using a Samsug Vibrant with Android 2.1 and I don't get any notifications.

    1 Perform normal pairing.
    2 After initial attempt to connect and getting "Phone Off" message.
    3. Go to the bluetooth screen on the phone "tap MB PhoneSystem"
    4 After a few seconds the command display will show "activating"
    5 You then get the screen where you can enter a number to dial.
    6. After about a minute, the phone book icon becomes active.
    7. After about another minute, dialed # etc. become active.

    I have about 200 numbers, it may take less time with fewer numbers.

    I prefer to have no interaction with the phone just start the car and go like my old Moto phones did, but this is better then nothing.

    My guess is that the phone needs an ok to download, but the notification does not come up. By initiating the connection from the phone, the authorization is not needed. (just speculation)

    Good luck.
