Question ID: 437030
When driving, Lexus does not allow you to dial from the Telephone
screen.  You can however, dial directly from the phone.  The problem
is, the bluetooth connection does not engage the voice of the
receiving party nor my voice for several seconds.  You don't even hear
the phone ring in the car.  Some parties hang up because they think no
one is there.  Any way to fix this delay?

1. Have you set up your phone to work properly with the Lexus system? 
See manuals here:

2. I have sent your question to Lexus response team...they may wish to
know your model vehicle/ year of vehicle and model phone before
providing info...
You can contact them yourself if you don't want me in the middle here:

As you can see on the
site, the Blackberry is not guaranteed to work properly with the Lexus
brand vehicles.

Hopefully someone here has the same model car and Blackberry as you
that has come across a solution but I don't think we will get one from
Lexus as Blackberry is not supported officially.

Here is an ongoing discussion about BT and Lexus:

Seems one solution to the 'ringing' problem maybe to ensure you are
using default ringtone.

It also seems that the best results are with T-Mobile and Cingular and
that Verizon seems to have alot of problems in this regard.
