Default Cell Phone with No Bluetooth

I just ordered a Prius yesterday and has bluetooth, however my phone is an older one (LG VX6000) and I belive it has no bluetooth. From what I heard about the Prius, there is some kind of cable you can use to plug your phone into the car and use the cars touch screen to call... is this true? If so where do I find this cable? And where does it plug into?

Thanks in advance,
Andrew

Nope, no cable. Only choice is to get a newer phone with Bluetooth.

I could be wrong here, but I thought that the Prius with package 4 and lower I belive... not sure which package, still have the phone in the touch screen but no bluetooth. I may have seen that thinking it didnt have bluetooth and there was a plug in option, but in fact it could have been a higher package with bluetooth. But I could have sworn it was in the lower packages, just not wirelessly... am I wrong on that?

The only plug I know of in the 2006 is the audio jack..

What you're thinking of is that you can, on the 2006s, get Bluetooth (for phone support) without the navigation package. (Before this, you couldn't get Bluetooth except with the Nav system.)

Jabra makes an adapter for some phones.. to make them bluetooth capable.. I'm not sure if it would work with the Prius, but if you're desperate, you can try..

I believe I saw in another post several months ago that the Jabra does not work with the Prius.

But then it was speculated that it might just be the passcode on the Prius has to be set to 0000 or something. Bluetooth always has a passcode, so any adapters would either have a fixed one, or have a way to change it.
