2 phones

Sat Mar 24, 2018 5:34 am

Hi, I have 2 phones, business and personal and I keep my contacts separately. I normally have my business phone paired with the Sync, however, sometimes I need to make a personal call while driving using my business phone. I don't want to disconnect my business and reconnect my personal to make the call. Does anybody know how to keep both phones contacts in Sync? Thanks

Actually, I can download contacts from more than one phone into my Mercedes because you can add contacts. Thanks

unfortunately, when you connect the other phone (let's B), the contact list from the previous phone (let's say A) either get deleted or makes it in-accessible.

No that isn't weird behavior at all (disconnect phone number one, connect a second phone and the contacts from phone one go away). Think about it. Contacts are part of an individual phone, they aren't universal or added to the car. The phone that is active displays those contacts. Privacy.

Now this is odd - why would you make a "personal" call on your "business" phone? Aren't business phones for making business calls? If that's a personal number you dial, add it to the contact list on the business phone. Done and done.

I get one scenario, calling home, calling your kids, or your significant other on the business phone. There should be no earthly reason why you can't add those numbers to the business phone. Especially since they will appear in the detailed use of your "business" phone.

Tesla has exactly the same behavior - whichever phone is active, those are the contacts displayed.
