Hello and Welcome -

My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise you...

First I just need to ask a couple of things -

Exactly what make / type of phone are you trying to use / pair?

When you say you have "reset" the bluetooth etc - how exactly have you done that?

What exactly is the issue you are having --? ie - will it pair but not work.. / will it not even pair etc --? What message are you getting on the display??

Last - please give me the Full reg number of the car -

Hello again Rory -

Thank you for your reply and info...

I do know that some of the Samsung range have limited functionality with the MB vehicles - but if its pairing up ok, it should "work"..

When you say it will not work - what exactly is the situation - whats not happening etc?

Plus - in view of the above - have you tried / can you try - a different make phone - to test the functionality side ?

Let me know how you get on -

Expert:  Mike replied 2 years ago.
Hi there Rory -

Thank you for your reply..

In that case then, I suspect its an issue with the Note - but yes - try another first and let me know - that will help us ID whats going on..

Speak to you later -

Just tried an i phone 5 and same thing pairs but does not connect

Expert:  Mike replied 2 years ago.
Hi there Rory -

Thank you for that ..

Are you using the COMAND system for this? and if so, is it "walking" you through ok?

Rgds, MIKE...........................
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

the comand system walks me through step by step, i.e enter code. On the dashboard it says please switch on phone

Expert:  Mike replied 2 years ago.
Hi there Rory -

In that case, you have a software issue / fault... with the COMAND system.

Im afraid its going to mean a trip to the local MB dealers Rory - they will need to either delete and re instal the software - or update it ... either way, it involves plug in equipment that only they can do for you..

Given what you have described / outlined, thats whats going to have to be done now to cure this Im afraid / get this working for you Rory... thats the way Im sorry to say -

If there is anything more you need or would like to discuss - by all means get back to me but that is whats needed on this now to get this sorted for you from what you have said / described. It does happen sometimes . ( quite often actually to be truthful !)

.>> Meantime ...........Please do click on the "OK/ Excellent ratings" for me as that's how Im credited for helping you - Thank you in advance for that...

You can and are most welcome to get back to me anytime you might need - clicking the OK ratings does not close you out at all..
