Blackberry Bold and iDrive Work Well

In case others are wondering, I just traded up my previous BB 8320 to a new Bold 3G here in France and it synced up and connected to iDrive/Bluetooth very well. The connection is super-stable compared to the 8320, which sometimes wavered a bit. The iDrive finds and connects to the phone very quickly.

The other thing that is also improved is the sync of the address book. I have about 840 contacts, and w/the 8320 I have to filter it down a lot to get it to sync; with the Bold, it works great with the entire contacts list.

Now, let's see if BMW will release a snap-in cradle for the Bold...

BOLD FTW!!

I agree - they should make a bold cradle.
But the Bold has one weakness and that is its battery life - switching on the bluetooth makes it even worse. I often times just plug my BOLD using a USB cable into the USB plug below the armrest to charge it while I'm driving for long distances.

My Bold works great. Synch seamlessless always loads quickly. Battery life on Bluetooth can be short. Otherwise great phone. Works well in my Cayenne S too!
