    Error msg and bluetooth freezing up

    Advertisement



    Hello all,
    I read the forums from time to time, but my first time posting. I am not too savvy so please be kind if the questions seem basic.

    I got my 8800 on friday and spent the w/e customizing it, I added Doc Hawk, espell, and downloaded TelNav. I have been using a bluetooth headset and it worked fine. I also set up the bluetooth to pair with my car and it worked fine. Today when I got in the car I tried to connect the 8800 and it froze on the "searching for devices" screen. I can't use the bluetooth, but if I escape out everything else works fine. I removed the battery and tried to reset the device. When it booted up I got an alert that said, "Uncaught Exception: java.lang.ClassCastException"

    If I hit okay the device works until I try to turn on the bluetooth, then the same thing as above happens. Device works, bluetooth won't

    Can anyone help?

    Update, I can connect to my headset with the bluetooth, but I get the same error in the car

    No dice, it froze up again while "looking for devices"

    is there a way to turn on the bluetooth without having the device look for new devices?

    Has anyone heard of "Uncaught Exception:java.lang.ClassCastException"??

    "Uncaught Exception:java.lang.ClassCastException" Yeah i got these error too. My bb8800 was working fine with my garmin car gps system, and than the next day i got the "Uncaught Exception:java.lang.ClassCastException" and it froze up on search new device. I noticed that this is caused by haveing "Groups" in your address book. I deleted my Groups and it started to work with the Garvin gps again. I guess when it tries to load your phonebook into the gps it doesnt like Groups. Also you can try to disable the transfere address book obtion. I havent tried it but it might work.

    I was having problems with 8100 and 06 BMW X5 - kept connecting, then disconnecting. I transferred the address book whilst on a call, then turned off the tranfer address book option - works fine now, and even display's caller id on the dashboard.

    Thanks Phoskito!!! Not sure how you figured that out, but I'd kiss your face if you were here. I can deal without the groups if I can use the bluetooth in my car!

    Re: Error msg and bluetooth freezing up

    Has anyone figured out the problem? Rogers sent me a new blackberry a week after I got it thinking it was the unit but the new one has the same problem. They said it was the X5 so I am going to see if they can help me today. My 8700 worked fine and so did the 8800 for about a day and then suddenly this error message and it completely crashes the bb, after I try to pair it I cant cancel it, disconnect or talk on the phone without being on speaker.

    I have a BMW Z4 3.0i and didnt have the same problem. Are you following the directions from BMW for pairing? Cause it took me 2 hours just to figure out what they heck they were trying to say? BMW uses auto specific BT codes that come with the vehicle. Just a thought

    I too had added a couple of "groups" in my address book and was getting the error message. Went in and removed the groups and now it works like a charm with my Nuvi 660!

    Thanks!

    I have the same problems with the X5 and my 8100. What did you find out?
