Phonebook not appearing on car bluetooth


May 23, 2010
I've got 3 phones paired with my car bluetooth. Using my old bar phone, I get access to the phonebook through the car, but with the HTC desire or Nexus S I don't - I only get access to recently dialled calls & audio. On one occasion a while ago, I paired the HTC desire and it popped up a message asking if I wanted to give the car access to the phonebook. I said yes, and had access to the phonebook through the car. However on subsequent pairings that message hasn't appeared & I don't have access to the phonebook. Any suggestions? The fact that it worked once with the desire tends to suggest that it's possible without any third party software.....
