    Has anyone been able to get their EVO 4G to pair to a BMW? I have a 2008 and cannot get it to pair to my G1.

    The problem is Google's implementation of Bluetooth. the G1 just has OS 1.6, but I believe the problem has still not been completely fixed in 2.1.

    Here's a link to the Google code issue:

    Issue 3960 - android - Bluetooth issues with car systems in Android 1.5 / 1.6 - Project Hosting on Google Code

    I am hesitant to give up my $30/month SERO plan for an EVO particularly if I cannot get it to do hands free. Heck even Microsoft can get their phones to pair.

    Great! Thanks!

    I do not have iDrive, but it should not make any difference.

    Thanks for the confirmation. As I said above, I do not think iDrive should make any difference. Worse comes to worse I can return it under the full money back guarantee.

    I have a 2009 BMW 335 and I was able to pair my EVO without any problems. I am having a problem with how the phone book is being displayed though. The names are showing up ordered inconsistently. some are listed as First Last, some are Last, First and some are First, Last,

    Very strange.
