Items that have me stumped

    Hey all,

    Just wanted to ask for your input on two items. Maybe somebody can shed some light:

    1. Bluetooth: I have a Kenwood car radio that I hook-up to. I ran the initial pairing and connection, it worked just fine. But now, every time i start the car, have to go into the SF's bluetooth settings menu, long press on the device name, choose "options", and check the "Phone - Use for phone audio" checkbox. Is there a way I can get the phone and radio to connect automatically without going through this extra step each time?

    2. Text messages: Is there a way to prevent the phone from vibrating when a text comes in? I get the notification tone and a short vibration. I've scoured the settings menu, but nothing seems to work.

    I'd appreciate any input.

    Can't help you with part 1 as I don't own or never own a bluetooth, but i can sure help you with question 2, in order for you to disable the phone from vibrating when getting a text message open your text message app, click on the settings button (first soft key, left of home soft key)>Settings, scroll all the way down and uncheck Vibrate.

    Hope that works for you.

    I've seen that if I don't have my bluetooth ON before getting in my car, it takes a good while for it to connect with my car's system, sometimes having to manually click the bluetooth item from the settings menu. I guess it just takes a while for the phone's BT to get fully up and running.

    Yeah it's strange. My SF's bluetooth is always on, but it never connects to the radio. I was in the car for 30 minutes this morning, and no dice. I had to manually connect.
