      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>

Further to the above, based on my own personal experience I can provide further details regarding compatability of some Blackberry handsets and a couple of others.

In order to be 100% compatabile with the bluetooth kit a handset needs to support RSAP (Remote SIM Access Profiles). At the time of writing Blackberry (and also iPhone) do not support this mechanism for security reasons.

Even without RSAP capabilities your handset may still function to some degree.

[url="http://na.blackberry.com/eng/devices/device-detail.jsp?navId=H0,C101,P203"][B]Blackberry Pearl 8100[/B][/url]
[LIST]
[*]This handset is NOT 100% compatable with the bluetooth kit.
[*]Making and recieving calls is supported and works in conjunction with the multi-function steering wheel when coded to initiate voice activation.
[*]Phone book download from [I]phone memory [/I] (or connected [I]contacts[/i] via BES) is supported
[*]Call logs are NOT downloaded to the kit. Some documentation states that only calls made and recieved when the handset is connected to the bluetooth kit will appear in the call logs. However this is not the case - all call logs remain empty. This is due to this particular Pearl model having an older implementation of the [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth#Bluetooth_protocol_stack"]Bluetooth protocol stack[/url] compared with the 8120/8130.
[*]If you are also connected to the Columbus/MFD3 head unit, all functions except display of the network provider are supported.
[/LIST]

As far as I am aware the symbian solution you mention is for S60 v3 only, so best to see what exact version of Symbian that phone has, I have had a quick google but couldnt see anything obvious.

Even if the contacts app loads and works, its a complete pain in the *** TBH.

So much so, I sold a much loved N95 8GB for a SE c902, which works faultlessly with the Skoda OEM.

Incidently, the Nokia n95 I now have from my work, works much better with my Bury CC9060 car kit in my freelander, downloads the phonebook and missed calls etc with no user input!! Why wont symbian phones do it with the Skoda OEM if they do it with other kits?

I'm very grateful to find this discussion thread as I've just got an Octavia Scout with the Columbus nav/media system and, while I'm totally happy weith everything else, I just don't know where to start with the phone system. The handbook talks about having to have additional software installed but does not say how to acquire this or how to set up the system from scratch. My phone used to link up to my old TomTom GPS with no trouble, but now it looks as if I have to start all over with t new phone. So I have to go back to the dealer to get this set up or what? Any advice would be very welcome.

Many thanks, Mike

You need to have the OE Skoda bluetooth kit for any of this to work. without it installed you will not be able to use the phone feature on the columbus unit.

I am also struggling with the new Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. Which is a fantastic phone in every respect other than it won't download the phonebook to my Columbus! The normal Nokia Car Kit software applications don't work on the 5800 (unlike on my old N95) because the 5800 uses the latest version of the Symbian software (v5).

Anyone out there come up with a fix!?!?!

I have just taken delivery of a Nokia 6220 Classic. I didn't realise that it was a Symbian phone at first however it is v3.
I installed the 616 car kit software and I get partial compatability. I can see the phonebook and network name but dialled, missed and received calls are not available.

It also looks as if all contacts you wish to see must be on the SIM.

Oh well partially successful.:O

Hmmm, not sure if this is a phone or BT kit problem.

Upgraded from a SE K800i to a HTC Touch Diamond2. An amazing piece of gadget phone, paired with the car fine, downloaded all the contacts fine (none were on the SIM but I enabled SIM access just in case), the car kit now doesn't make a ringing noise though.....

The first I know that someone's rung is by glancing at the Maxi-dot with the Incoming Call screen. Once I accept the call using the stalk the radio mutes and all is normal.

I'm at a loss at how to enable the ring from the car kit, or why in this instance it isn't working.

Any ideas?

Niall
