First of all the cell phone is a Samsung A900(Sprint PCS).
The pairing worked fine. Problem is transfering your phonebook from
the cell phone to the Prius bluetooth phonebook. From the Prius
bluetooth settings menu you choose transfer. The display screen then
says "Please send phonebook from phone". After a few moments the
cancel button in the the upper right corner becomes highlighted, and
the message just sits there until you touch the cancel button or it
Anyone know of a fix, probably with the phone?

Some phones can transfer the entire phonebook, while others can only
transfer one contact at a time, while others can't transfer at all.
Looking through the pairing/transfer/feature guides at
http://toyota.letstalk.com/ for the Samsung models:
Samsung MM-A920 (Sprint)
Samsung MM-A940 (Sprint PCS)
Samsung SCH-A630 (Verizon)
Samsung SCH-A930 (Verizon Wireless)
Samsung SCH-A950 (Verizon Wireless)
Samsung SCH-A970 (Verizon Wireless)
Samsung SCH-A990 (Verizon Wireless)
Samsung SGH-D307 (Cingular)
Samsung SGH-D357 (Cingular)
Samsung SGH-D407 (Cingular)
Samsung SGH-D807 Grey (Cingular)
Samsung SGH-T509 (T-Mobile)
Samsung SGH-T609 (T-Mobile)
Samsung SGH-T809 (T-Mobile)
Samsung SPH-I700 (Verizon)
The Samsung phones are all over the place regarding support of
phonebook/contact transfer. Neither of the listed Sprint models can do
the entire phone book, but should be able to do one contact at a time.
Note that you'll have to initiate the transfer from your phone, too,
and it is not a straight pull from the Prius (you didn't mention any
phone settings in your description above when transferring).

I had the same issue. You need to go the phone address book, and execute a
"Send all" command. Different phones will do in different menu's.
