Default Galaxy s2 and sorento phonebook

I have a SX with the nav system, and changed my phone from a blackberry to the new samsung galaxy s2. Now when I start the car, the bluetooth connects, I get a message on the phone screen that says "phonebook requested" for a second, but there are never any phonebook entries on the nav system. I can make calls with the dial pad, and receive them fine, but no contacts list. Anyone find a solution for this? I found no settings on the phone to allow any permissions for the phonebook. Thanks!

With my Nexus (Android), first time connecting it asked for permission for phone book access on my phone. I saw an icon in notification area otherwise i would not have noticed it.

I have a related (but may be little OT) question.

Has anyone paired their Samsung Intercept (Virgin Mobile) in Sorento.
I know there is list of supported devices and I did not find the intercept in that list.
I have this phone and would be buying Sorento soon. Not that I will change either of it just for this reason, but just wanted to know if someone is already using it.

Don't know the answer, but when I was looking to buy mine the salesman let me try out pairing the phone just to see how it worked. You could ask.

Thanks Vim! that worked. If anyone wants to know the entire procedure it went like this:
Delete the bluetooth pairing on the sorento and phone to start from scratch.
Tell the sorento to add a phone, and the phone to search for devices.
Enter the passcode key 0000 and quickly go to your notification area on your phone.
A message will pop up asking for permission to load the phonebook.
Click the checkmark "always allow" and OK (sometimes ok first then "always allow")
Done!

amigafin, Thanks for the verification that the Galaxy IIS works with our Sx's. That’s the Nav, not the UVO (don’t know about it for sure but it should be the same). I tried starting a post with all the newest mobile devices and whether or not they work well but it didn’t take. On another note, I've responded to this issue before so I'll say it again so others who are searching can find the answer. ALL Android devices will initially ask for permission to sync contacts. It shows up in the notification bar when paired, just thumb down the notification and select yes or sync or ok etc... Once this is done no other syncing is needed. If you have an issue "Connecting" after you have "Paired" the device, press the phone button on the KIA, select "Settings" and click on connect. This will force a connect; otherwise the KIA should connect automatically if your Bluetooth is switched on. On Android devices, if the car/suv is connected and you cannot or don’t want to use the hands free, simply use the device to answer and it should route the call through the handset. Also, there is a Bluetooth button on the call screen, if lit, pressing will also route through the handset. If anyone else has a NEW device please post radio and compatibility. Thanks to all of you for NOT texting while driving and for using your Hands-Free function.

Just got a Galaxy Ace and still had trouble getting the contacts visible in my Sportage even though I was able to pair successfully. Resolved by saving all my SIM contacts to the phone.
