Mobile Phone Is In Use

Recommended Posts

I have a Bluetooth connection on my 400H. I tried to push the "talk" button on the steering wheel to make a call, but got a message saying "mobile phone is in use" even though my phone was not being used. I eventually figured out that it was my IPOD that I had in my pocket. Apparently I hadn't turned it completely off, and my guess is that it generated a radio signal of some sort that the car's system interpreted as my cell phone being used. I turned off the IPOD and the phone system worked fine. Hope this posting saves someone some frustration and money.

Ok, I'm the same guy who did the original post. The first time this happened, it was the IPOd. A couple of weeks later it happened again, and the IPOD was nowhere near. The phone I was trying to use it with was a Blackberry. The phone was not in use, but I kept getting the same message that the phone was in use. I ended up calling Verizon. The tech support person had me remove the battery from the Blackberry and doing a re-boot that way. Apparently that's different from just turning the phone off and then on again. Once the phone re-booted, after removing and re-installing the battery, the bluetooth on the car worked fine.

Thanks for the posting. My wife has a Blackberry and we'll be aware of this issue in the future.

Hey, hope it helps. It was a frustrating experience for me. Didn't know if it was the car or the phone.

Glad we have this forum. It has saved me big bucks.

Cheers,
