I'm starting this thread to keep track of which devices people have used that worked with the bluetooth system in the Kizashi.

HTC Touch Pro2 (Windows) and HTC EVO 4G (Android) - both work without issue and paired up easily.

FYI - the Radio displays the code to input on your phone during the pairing process.

I can't tell you how nice it is to hear that phones not listed on the Suzuki web site work. I purchased a T-Mobile Vibrant and was not able to pair it. My old phone that is listed pared with no problem so I took the Vibrant back and started using my old phone again. Now I have hope again. By the way can you stream music to it from the phone? If so does the phone still ring when the phone is streaming music?

I have a minor suggestion. Could we expand the list to include phone call, phonebook and audio streaming compatibility? My 1st Gen iPhone works perfectly making calls, but doesn't seem to be able to do the latter two. Not a huge deal but when I upgrade I'd like to get one that does all three.

iPhone 3GS, phone and audio streaming. Haven't tried the phonebook part, although I seem to remember reading somewhere that it's not supposed to work.

I don't think that the first gen iPhone has stereo bluetooth.

Feel free to update with what worked and I'll add it.

It actually depends on your phone, not the car, but I've never used a phone that didn't pause the music and ring when a call was coming in.

Update: Both phones do streaming audio and calls. Also transmits the GPS turn-by-turn instructions over the car stereo and pauses/mutes the streaming audio when the GPS is talking.
