  1. Phonebook and calling

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    I've been trying to search the forum for answers, but let me just ask to be sure for when we get our android smartphones and are ready to download our phonebooks. (especially since some old posts may not apply now if the technology had changed) When you do a voice command to ask the Kia to...
  2. Bluetooth phonebook question - please help - thanks !

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Our cell phones will connect via bluetooth with our 2015 Kia Soul Plus and we can make calls manually by dialing manually on the phone then setting it down, but our phonebook won't download. Is this usually a problem with some phones where there is no solution and you just have to resign...

  5. Downloading Phonebook

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Sorry for the cross post - I was in the wrong forum. My Bluetooth has a glitch. Whenever I make a call and then hang up, I am told that it is downloading the phonebook (again!) and consequently I can do nothing with the phone until this is complete. I thought I had somehow fixed this be...
  6. Downloading Phonebook

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My apologies if this has been asked before. My phone connects and transfers ok. If I make a call however, when I hang up and try to make another call immediately, I'm told that the phonebook is being downloaded, and I must wait until it finishes. Is this normal to have the phonebook downloaded...
  7. iPhone 4 and Phonebook question

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just got an iPhone 4, and it seems to want to re-pair with the Soul each time I get in the car. Also, on my previous Blackberry, I could choose which contact groups to download through the bluetooth, so rather than wait for it to connect over 1,000 contacts from my entire phonebook, I only...
  8. Droid X and Soul Phonebook Woes

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    So I've had this problem with Android 2.1 and 2.2. I've paired and unpaired and re-paired and it still happens. I pair my phone to the Soul, it registers as a Phone profile. I go to make a call and it tells me it's downloading the phonebook. After a minute the phonebook downloads and I can make...

  11. Slow phonebook download? Bad sound Quality? Look here

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1) Find your phone carrier on the left, then find your phone in the list. It should tell you what bluetooth version it is down towards the bottom. Ver 1.1 = Crap. Slow. Not worth it. Ver 1.2 = "up to 721 kbit/s" Ver 2.0 (without EDR) = "up to 721...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Is there any way to save your phonebook so that the car doesn't have to go through the save process everytime you get in the car?
  13. Bluethooth taking long time to download phonebook

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I have read on the forums that it takes about 20 seconds for the Bluethooth to sync, but in my car it takes about five minutes. If I hit the call button before it it displays a message that says its downloading my phone book. One it does I get the message saying its linked up, but right after I...
