    I have just tried to pair my Samsung Galaxy W with my VW Tiguan. The phone pairs with the car but won't let me upload the contacts. I have downloaded the file transfer file from marketplace, but this didn't help. I was never asked for a PIN number as VW suggest I should be (and as I was when I successfully paired my old motorola Razr phone).

    Where am I going wrong? Help!

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums! :)

    Are you sure you are paired correctly? When I need to upload contacts from my phone, I get a notification on the phone requesting permission to allow my phone to connect. You might have to pull down the notification bar to see the notice.

    Many thanks - the phone had paired, but not uploaded phonebook. The very brief flashing bluetooth symbol escaped me the first 500 times I attempt the pairing. But when I discovered that touching the symbol enabled me to pull down a new window, I was sorted. It's a pity that Samsung don't provide this advice and we have to spend hours surfing for good hearted friends on the internet who can help. Hooray for the Internet - and thank you lunatics 59.

    That's what I'm here for ... and the 400 hours of community service the judge ordered, but we won't talk about that. ;)

    Seriously, It would be nice if the Auto manufacturers and the phone manufacturers got together to test all the settings and put out a book of instruction, but given the sheer number of car models and phone models, it would be 9,000 pages weigh 120 lbs. and cost $400. And we'd probably get the 2012 edition some time in 2016.
