Hi! I've had my Prius since November and am now looking to get the proper phone compatible with the car. I'm looking to go with the Nokia 6230. Is anyone using this phone? And does anyone have any suggestions about the best phone to get?!?!? Or what to look for?

Thanks everyone! I look forward to hearing from you!

Not all Bluetooth phones are created the same, so be sure to check to see which features were tested in the TSB. (some phones can upload the entire phonebook at once (like the Sony Ericsson phones), while some only do one contact at a time (like the Nokia phones), and some cannot upload anything (Motorola V710 on Verizon). some may also have issues dialing emergency numbers...)

I have the Nokia 6230 and it works great with my 2004 Prius. It connects and disconnects pretty consistently. I haven't bothered to program and load the auto-dialer on the Prius display, but dialing from the phone is a snap. You can answer calls from the steering wheel which is pretty convenient.

The 6230 also has a voice activitated dialing and of course the cool non-car related features like an FM radio, mp3 player (which you can use any song as a ring tone) and a crappy camera. I have also used the phone to synch my Outlook calendar appointments, but the biggest annoyance is that you have to attend to each appt reminder when it occurs otherwise, the phone continues to sound an alert.

Happy shopping. I got the phone from one of the independent cell phone stores which gave me a free, unlocked 6230 with signing up with Tmobile. Because it was unlocked, I was able to take it with me to China and use the phone with a local GSM sim card in place of my Tmobile one. The major drawback with the phone is that it takes a proprietary Nokia headset. All in all, it is a great phone and very cool to use with the Prius.

The Palm Treo 650 (also a PDA/phone combination) now works well with the Prius. Your phone choice will depend on the wireless carrier you choose. That is the most important decision since you want to be sure there is good coverage in the areas you frequent.
