Where are you from? I beleive "most" come with Bluetooth. As above check the phone setting in the setup area of the stereo.

If for some reason you do not have Bluetooth in yoour stereo the only option would be to buy an 3rd party Bluetooth speaker for your car. And no you can't use the iPod cable to make calls. If plugged
in you can still use the phone as normal however.

In the owner's manual there is a section for the bluetooth functionality, which includes the tree of commands that you can use after pressing the talk button on the steering wheel. You can also just sit in your car, press the talk button, then say "Help" and it will tell you the tree of commands. You have to pair your phone to the car before you can use bluetooth...however once you pair it you do not have to pair again it will be all automatic. In order to pair your phone make sure you start the process with bluetooth enabled on your phone or you may have to start over again after you enable it.

On another note once you have bluetooth up and running enjoy the annoying "Transfer Complete" it says about 20 seconds after every time you give power to the car.

Bluetooth is an optional extra here in Australia. Not sure if I am going to get mine with it. I have the handsfree earpiece which works fine for me at the moment.

The bluetooth is the worst I've ever used. If you have to pay extra, don't bother.

Bluetooth on the Forte is the best thing ever. I have never had any issue with it whatsoever and it makes talking on the phone and making calls super easy.

Yeah. Super annoying. Bluetooth also seems to wear out my battery faster. But it is very nice to be able to talk on the phone and shift at the same time without having to juggle your hands from steering wheel to phone to transmission...

any bluetooth will do that. but it is nice to be able to talk and call without looking away. watch out for complicated names. My last name is Czubernat, the c is silent and on my phone i had Czuby home. the damn thing couldn't understand me.

Everyone should put a contact entry for "ICE" (In Case of Emergency)... then just tell the bluetooth "Call ice home".

Whole heartidly agree. It needs to be programmed much better. It is great at low speeds/low noise, but hit the freeway and forget it.

just a thought, but the windows are rolled up when you use the bt on the fwy, right? wind noise (or any loud background noise) will create problems for any voice-activated program/device.
