I have my iPhone working via the Bluetooth on the nav screen. I know you can sync multiple phones but, has anyone used two iPhones in the car? Seperate numbers. I'm going to sync the second onen in the AM but was wondering if I was successful , what would happen if both phones were to receive a call at the same time?? Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

Per the owners manual page 6-43:

The Bluetooth system links with the first available paired cell phone in the order the phone was paired.
Only one paired cell phone can be connected to the Bluetooth system at a time.
So that means you could use one of your phones through the vehicle bluetooth interface. You can pair up to 5 different phones, but only one can be connected to the vehicle at a time. You could still receive another call on the second phone, it just wouldn't be through the vehicle's system.

We use 2 of them. The first iPhone (or any phone) paired becomes the "primary phone". That is if both of you have your phones in the car with you, the primary one will become the one used to dial out. Both will ring and answer via bluetooth on incoming calls though. And if only the non-primary is in the car, it works just fine like normal.

We haven't experienced both ringing at the same time in the car yet :eek:

I'm trying to remember correctly, but the Bluetooth in GM's should have room for 4 total phones paired. We actually ran into this problem as it seemed that some of the sales guys where we bought had paired their phones. When we tried to pair ours, the system reported that it was full! Ack! The names they put on the phones were odd, so it took a number of attempts in telling the system which phones to delete. Oh well, not a big deal, and I did learn a few things from that experience.

It says repeatedly that only one phone can be connected at a time, so I think that is really cool that you said that two phones can receive calls.
My wife thinks I may have that wrong too, she thinks only one phone would work at any given time. I could have sworn that it worked. This is not the first GM that has had this for us, so maybe I'm remembering an older model's operation. We'll have to test it.

thanks for all the responses. We did not have time to pair the second phone for the drive up to Orlando but, will do it morning before drive back to Miami beach. I'll let you know what happens.

Well, paired the second iphone for trip back from Orlando to Miami Beach ( side note, the Terrain was excelent to drive and comfortable! Had many a cars over the years, Land Rover, Hummer H3, Cooper S Convertible, Benz slk, and a host more.. anyway, the seats in the Terrain were so comfortable its the first time I had taken the trip withour my right leg getting fatigued???? i don't get it but both up to Orlando and back down, I had no issues. the power with the 6 cyl is great! had to punch it a few times and it really does pick up) Anyway, I cold go on and on.. we figured out, only one phone and use the blue tooth at a time. It was actually quite easy. Who ever was driving had the blue tooth connection. Press the "config" button and select which phone you want connected. That easy! We actually were able to conduct a meeting with our biz partner. All hands free!
