Bluetooth phone


Asked by Jul 19, 2008 at 10:07 AM about the 2008 Toyota Prius

Question type: General

I have a 2008 Prius and have connected my T-Mobile Blackberry Curve via Bluetooth to it.  It works great.  But, does anyone know how to temporarily disconnect the bluetooth for certain callers -- and just talk through the phone.  I can't talk to my 90 year old mother via Bluetooth in my car.  She has trouble hearing/understanding.  But, I can't figure out how to disconnect the Bluetooth (temporarily) when I'm in my car and talk to her through my phone.  Plus, there are times when I have passengers and I don't really want them to hear what my caller is saying.

on your phone go down to the blue tooth controller and shut it off that way then when u are ready to use it again you can go back and turn it on again

Pete Mackay

As far as i know, if you turn your car audio down to zero, then just hold your phone to your ear it should do what you want. Then again i've never done this in a Prius so try it out and see what happens

The only way to do it is to turn off your Bluetooth on your phone. It will automatically disconnect from the car. Then you'll have to re-connect it manually or turn it on again and it will find each other again after the next key cycle. You don't have to pair it again. Just go to the menu and select "Select Phone" option(without NAV). With NAV Prius, you'll go to the phone screen, then press settings, then press phones, then select the phone, then press OK. If it doesn't work, let me know. I sell Toyotas.
