Hi....I'm a newbie, so apologies if I'm doing anything wrong!!!!

My current mobile is broken so I am looking for an upgrade. I've checked the Ford Website to see which phones are compatible with my 59 Fiesta, but all those that are listed are ancient!!

Does anyone have a new mobile (preferably touchscreen) which works with the Bluetooth and doesn't drop out?

Cheers

Alison

Most modern phones will work I guess

My Samsung Soul (U900) works...but is abit of a mess at time and can freeze the Voice controls :huh:
Not enough to make me get a new phone or disable the bluetooth though :)

Secretly I was after the Sony Ericsson Vivaz but not sure if it works with the bluetooth system. I could get an iphone but will have to move over to O2...decisions, decisions.....

If you were to move onto an iPhone i'd suggest waiting for the new release in about Juneish time - if you can wait that long for your bluetooth?

I thought about this, but the future "4G" as it will likely be, will cost even more than the current 3G, as it will introduce HD playback and the like. Not being too fussed, I ordered a new iPhone 3GS the other day, so will look forward to seeing how well it works in my Focus. I anticipate no issues, as the Focus reportedly has a rather decent Bluetooth module installed (when compared to the issues some Mondeo and Fiesta owners have reported).

Blackberry storm doesnt work at all it you cant use buttons to answer calls. You cant dial out using the centre console most of the time and every so often the car will start ringing even thiough there is no incoming call.

My iPhone does calls fine, but whenever I try and use voice controls to dial names it says the phonebook is empty, where as when I pressed phone and scroll across to phonebook using the buttons they're all listed... Confused...

The phone directory on the car is separate from your phone's phonebook. To use the "dial name" voice control you first have to us the "Store Name" command to store the name.

That's good to hear as I'm looking at upgrading to one of them later today, they can keep their overpriced iPhones.

They're brilliant phones... My dad's got an iPhone and I honestly think the desire is a better phone :D
