I'm on Verizon's site right now; there are twenty-one bluetooth phones
available.  They all work with the Prius.

Well, that's what I want to know.  If you compare the Toyota
lists, there is virtually no intersection.  I am glad to hear
that the other bluetooth phones work (even to some degree)
even if they are not listed.

As I said a few days ago, the reason they're not on Toyota's list is
because the Toyota list is fifteen months old, and almost all of the
bluetooth phones that Verizon offers were released after Toyota
published that list.

I use Sprint and have an LG PM-325 phone. It's "Blue Tooth Compatible"
but has only limited connectivity to the Prius Blue Tooth system. As I
recall, Sprint uses exclusively or primarily a CDMA system and I
believe that no cell phone that uses this system will have full
connectivity to the Prius (2004) system. I can receive incoming calls
on my wireless Prius system, and everytime I start my car it says it
recognizes my Blue Tooth phone. But to make an outgoing call I have to
be stopped and manually put in the phone number to be called. I can't
transfer the phone book from my phone to the Prius or use any of the
other advantages that the built in Prius system offers. Needless to say
this has been a continuing frustration since I bought the phone. And
Sprint hasn't been at all helpful in offering an alternative. So, I
recommend uing only the phones Toyota recommends - limited in number
though they are. Good luck!
