Assistance needed. Going crazy about to smash my cell phone. I just bought a samsung sch-a870 verizon cell phone with bluetooth so i can use the plus acount services. Tom Tom one finds and recognizes the cell and the cell recognizes the tom tom one, but when i put in the password and try to pair them both connection fails or the connection gets completed and then my cell phone will restart. The tom tom has two verizon options for provider verizon ( QNC ) or (Expr..) which one do i pick. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Im not sure which one to pick, I dont have Verizon.
Try both until you get it paired correctly

Maybe a Verizon user can shine some light.

Try this...

Does the phone have Verizon Broadband service enabled? I believe this is a prerequisite...

Do NOT use the preconfigured Verizon services on the TT, configure both ther service and phone manually...

When configuring data services on your Gox10, select other for phone and service so that you may configure the service manually...

Enter the following parameters:
Access Point name: vzw3g
Username: mobile#@vzw3g.com (mobile# is your cell phone #)
Password: vzw
Dialup #: Accept Default
use DHCP-auto and DNS-auto
left blank for Logon Script

Hope this does the trick...

Also note: you may have to go to the Bluetooth config. on the your TT, click advanced, then done....you will be presented w/ an option as to weather your phone can switch between data and voice gracefully. TT recommends selecting yes, my experience w/ my LG VX8100 is no, the phone does NOT switch gracefully and the phone needs to be "rebooted" by remcving and replacing the battery.

I would check w/ the phone manufacturer as to what the expected behaviour is w/ your phone - most of Verizon tech support is useless and will just give you the party line "that it does not work"

I have Cingular, and there were 2 choices like you said when I paired. I was only successful after trying them both, the second one did the trick. Hope you get it working!

I tryed everything they both find each other and get paired then connection fails. I have mobile web on the phone with bluetooth. Tom Tom advised me that all the Tom Tom products at this time due not work with verizon wireless. Strangley I heard of people who got both products to work. Does anyone have verizon wireless and the ability to connect both products and if so, please help.

Had same problem with Verizon Motorola Q. Firmware update killed DUN hack so I had to shell out the $15 per month for Broadband access. Once hack your DUN settings or pay for Broadband access, follow berkisho's steps, what u want to select is Verizon QNC.
