    There is a new feature that I discovered on the Blue & Me recently and its happened with me twice already. It goes like this :

    I get a call from someone =>I keep talking to the person thru' Blue and Me ==> I accidentally switch off the Engine ===>I continue to converse on the Car Speakers even after switching off the Engine. ::OO

    I do not understand how this can be possible since logically the Blue&Me should get deactivated once I switch of the Engine completely. :confused and since its happened with me twice, I think it could be an inherent feature of the system ??

    Has any TFIan experienced this before ?

    Eureka!!! ::T
    I have noticed that the Blue&Me pairing with the phone gets disconnected after 2-3 seconds of switching off the car if we are not talking. Now I guess it is because Blue&Me does not get deactivated as soon as switching off the engine and taking out the key. It makes sure that no phone call is taking place.

    Nice discovery!! :clap I was thinking that all possible features must have been discovered by now.

    A query to all those using ver 5.5 :anyone
    If you say "inbox", what reply does the car give exactly? Does it say the precise following line:
    "No message in vehicle memory". Does it use the word, vehicle memory?
    If you haven't checked, please check it by saying help/message reader/inbox.

    And also reply to my query i posted few pages back, here:
    viewtopic.php?f=11&t=25&start=70#p14484
    I didn't get any reply earlier.

    It depends on Phone. I've Nokia 6265 & it has its limitations in this feature. In B&M Phone book it shows only 1 phone number against 1 name (even though there are more numbers for that name in my phone) whereas in case of other phones, B&M Phone-book shows multiple Phone number against 1 name.

    When someone calls, his name or number is shown on MID. When I call someone dialing from B&M phonebook, MID shows name/ phone number of recipient. When I call someone dialing from my Phone, MID shows "PRIVATE NUMBER". All these are due to my phone Nokia 6265.

    I already have B&M v5.5. When B&M box was replaced 3-4 months back, the new box came with v 5.5 in Italian language ! It shows "Random" instead of "Play anything". And when you stop media player by voice command, it says "Stopped" instead of "Playback stopped" earlier.

    Is the link above of B&M v5.5 the same as original version 5.5 & if not, does it have anything extra over original 5.5 ?

    Sorry. Again, my phone does not support Message Reader. Most of the Sony Errickson phones support Message Reader.

    PS: Am getting Black Berry 8530 on Monday. Lemme see if I get any additional B&M features activated in it though am not much hopeful. (From Monday, my car will be at TASS for 2-3 days, won't be able to check Black Berry with B&M)

    @VP- Yes. Even I can't use SMS Reader as it is not compatible. But when someone say inbox, it says "no message in the vehicle memory" if the inbox is empty.

    I don't want that after upgrade to v5.5, it just says "inbox empty" or something. I want to ensure that it says the 2 words "vehicle memory". :lol: ::V

    LOL at vehicle memory :D However, saying inbox empty will be a wrong statement by LaLina as the inbox on the phone may not be empty. So if it says "inbox empty" it will be a technical foul :D
