Limit on number of contacts that can be synced via Bluetooth from an iPhone?

I have an iPhone with over 400 contacts. I believe I read that the BMW syncs all the contacts from your phone? Anyone with an iphone had any issues syncing a large number of contacts?

Also, does the car show you multiple phone numbers like cell and office for a contact?

Thanks

I use a iPhone with about 200 contacts and it synchs fine. It shows work home and mobile numbers per contact without issues.

My understanding is that it will only sync the first 500 entries. I have my company's entire phone book on my blackberry --several thousand entries and it will only sync up to "E"

I DON'T have an iPhone, but I do have a Windows Mobile smartphone (AT&T Tilt). iDrive indexed all 1400 contacts (over 30% of them have two or more numbers) with no problem. Way cool in my book.

My Blackberry 8700g doesn't sync any contacts - does anyone know if this is an issue with the 'berry or a security feature that work have set? I've looked at the Bluetooth settings and apparently it's encrypted and I can't change it (administrator overide).

I have a Blackberry 8330 with over 400 contacts and have had zero issues with accessing the contact list.

Awesome, so the tilt is working good in your M? I have an 09 on order and was debating to get prem pack or not for bluetooth - this confirms I should!
