    Okay well I checked mazda's website and the galaxy II is indeed compatible with your vehicle, do you have the option of pairing and using the phone with a different bluetooth device say like an earpiece for testing purposes?  This will tell us if this is an issue with the phone directly or specifically with the link to the car.

    Keith, this isn't about individual cars, this is a problem with the phone itself.  My earpiece has the same problem.  It will connect until I move away from my phone far enough for it to lose connection - then when I move back in range it will not reconnect until after a restart.  This needs to be addressed asap.

    Have you tested your SGS 2 bluetooth with wireless headsets? When it comes to car stereos most problems come from the vehicle's bluetooth, because car manufacturers typically only support certain devices and any devices used that are not supported won't work properly.

    Yes, even headsets sold in TMO stores.  It is a problem with the phone not reconnecting to previously-connected devices after it loses range then comes back in range.

    Had a few minutes to

     

    1. checked Toyota's site and the samsung sg2 is not listed, the original sg (from other carriers) is however. So one wonders what  samsung did to "improve" the Bluetooth experience.

     

    Just about every android forum has many post complaining that the samsung sgii does not connect with their car Bluetooth systems over many makes and models. So clearly Samsung does not really care, or expects everyone to go and by a new car that is compatible.

     

    2. "Bluetooth" is a trademark and supposedly a "standard" that must be adhered to. I am sure just like software companies that say it is a hardware problem and the hardware company saying it is a software problem and it never gets fixed. So it would seem a bluetooth standard is not really a standard.

    hmmmm, I went into the t-mobile store and the only thing I got was, well, it's your car because nobody is having problems with the BT. 

  • 20. Re: Bluetooth paired but not connecting?

    With the OTA update that came out today, my bluetooth issues are gone.  If this wasn't an issue, then it wouldn't have been fixed with the latest update.  It will play/pause without locking up or giving an error.  It pairs and stays connected too.  Thank you Samsung!  No thanks to tmo store reps though.

    Interesting!  I haven't received the update yet but I'll post my bluetooth experience here after I do.

  • 22. Re: Bluetooth paired but not connecting?

    I am starting to have the same problem.  When  I first got the phone, it was working fine.  Now after about 2 minutes, I lose the blue tooth connection to my car.  It was working fine with my orginial Galaxy phone, no issues, but it seems there is a problem with the Galaxy S II.

     

    T-Mobile, what's the solution!!!!

    true, BT is flaky on the sgsii since the 2.3.6 update b/c I really was not experiencing any bt problems before. this really needs to be addressed.

    obviously this problem is not exclusively happening to car BT, this problem really needs to be resolved. turning on/off the BT & device works sometimes for me, but does not on others. When it happens 3 or 4 times a day it really gets frustrating.

  • 25. Re: Bluetooth paired but not connecting?

    Try this

    Turn on your wifi and turn on the bluetooth

    then turn off bluetooth and turn back on.

    Make sure your wifi is on.

    I'm having same problem with others

    Then everything should be work fine

  • 26. Re: Bluetooth paired but not connecting?

    aaron, tired many things in both the Audi and Benz. The phone does not even see either vehicle when searching for bluetooth devices to pair with. Several months ago I googled this as saw many problems with higher end vehciles not being able to pair with the SII? Is this a Samsung issue or do I need to work with Audi and Benz? Or do I work with TMobile? Both our vehciles were not purchased directly from the dealer but as used. Seems really stupid that a newer phone is not backward compaitable with bluetooth phones in cars.

  • 27. Re: Bluetooth paired but not connecting?

    Had the problem of my SII not staying connected.  T-Mobile sent me a replacement phone and had the same problem, so they sent me another one.  This one would cycyle the bluetooth on and off.  Called T-Mobile yet again, and they told me to call Samsung.  Called Samsung, they told me to send them the phone, which I did.  The discovered a bluetooth issue, and fixed the phone and sent it back to me.  Have no problems now with the connection.

     

    lindemj,

      It's not your cars, it's the phone.  I would call Samsung and tell them the issues and then send them the phone.  It was quick and easy, sent them the phone and had it back in a week
