I had the same problem. I was in the house and discovered that my Samsung phone was still connected via Bluetooth to the car. After experimenting to resolve the problem I found the only way to disconnect was to disable Bluetooth on my phone. I then tried unpairing my phone and car. But then when I tried to repair, the car would give ma a Failure To Pair as soon as it told me to search for a new Bluetooth device on my phone. I tried two other phones and nothing would pair. I found elseware on this forum that there is a service bulletin. PI0285 that is supposed to fix about 30 issues with the radio. I had the dealer install the upgrade. That fixed the Bluetooth problem, at least for now, but generated a few more problems. now the GPS reverts to Washington DC every time I want to program a new destination and I have to set the state again and the GPS loses the destination if I turn off the ignition to stop for gas. Good luck.
That is funny. I forgot to mention I had the update done b/c I had NAv issues, time issues, etc.
Ever since the reflash, i have had phone problems. Total opposite of you.
I am hoping the Bluetooth module is a separate unit and is fried or something. I use the bluetooth everyday. It would really suck not to have it.
I don't think it is a Verizon Iphone issue b/c I had the phone since the day it came out in February, I think. Never once had connectivity issues at all. Always rock solid and never had problems pairing. Very strange to just happen one day. Then again, all the NAV and time issues just cropped up one day. The computers are revolting against the humans!!!!
Sounds like a sci-fi movie.
