    Yes. Go to . It has vehicle instructions for every Mercedes Model and specific instruction for each iPhone carrier. I just paired my Apple iPhone 4s (Sprint) to my 2009 C300 4Matic Sport this morning.

    Hello darryl7777, the link you sent almost helped me. i already have the audio and phone conected, the internet is the one not conected.

    On that website there is no answer to my question.

    Which is: will the comand online of my c180 coupe 2012 work with my iphone 4. because it works with a old nokia.

    Any one know how to get it to work? is it a iphone problem, a mercedez problem or is it me?

    I have an SL500 2008 update. The blutooth has been working perfectly with both my and my wife's IPhone. Now neither work. As soon as a call comes  the entire console screen freezes and it takes 30 secs to reboot or reset by itself. I have de authorised both phones and re paired them but to no avail. I fear that the Mercedes Blu tooth is no longer compatible with the latest OS V5. But then I found your online advice but am unsure what i have to do for thismodel merc to reset. Can you please advise what i would need to do?

    The specific Frequently Asked Question indicates:


    Is it possible to transfer phone numbers from my mobile phone to the phone system?


    Check in the function list for your mobile phone whether the functions “Send contacts” and “Import directory” are available. For details on transferring numbers, follow the information in the operating instructions for your mobile phone selected from the compatibility list.


    Unfortunately, you alter your iPhone (if you know what I mean).

    I'm not certain if you found an answer yet.  I was able to get my contacts in, but it was a little complicated.  I could not import my contacts directly from my iPhone.  I used the saved contacts on my laptop (MacBook Pro) and I selected the contacts I wanted to transfer.  I saved the selected contacts into a Vcard file.  I then paired my MacBook Pro to my 2009 C300 via bluetooth (my wifi was still in range between my home and my vehicle in the driveway).  Then sent the Vcard file to the C300 via bluetooth and the contacts were imported.  (It has been awhile since I did this but I think I had to initiate the file transfer on my laptop, then initiate the import contacts on my C300.)  There were a couple of error messages in the process about the headset settings not being valid, or something like that.  Just ignore those error messages.  The process worked fine for me.  Hope this helps. Essentially, to get the contacts in, you have to create a Vcard file on your laptop, pair your laptop with your MB, then send the contacts to MB from your laptop.

    My father have and S-350 jun-2007 and last week bought and iphone 4S (5.1.1) and the MB Bluetooth adaptor 67880000 wich the MB dealer told it was the last one compatible with 4S. It has pair without problems and can use the phone (send, receive calls), but the contacts has been transfered only one entry per contact (if a contact have cell, home, bussines, only transfer the first one) and in diferent order (surname, name) than displayed on the iphone (name, surname) what it is really anoying.


    Anyone knows how to solve this, need to update command APS firmware or something like that??


    Sorry for my english (i am from Spain) and thanks in advance.

    Regarding receiving text messages with an iPhone for Mercedes Benz it now works!!! A couple of things you need to know;

    1. Need a 3GS or newer,

    2. Need iOS 6,

    3. Pair iPhone to car,

    4. Go to settings on the phone, select Bluetooth, tap on the blue arrow beside the MB connection,

    5. Ensure 'notification' is on!


    Voila, it works instantly!!!


    If your Benz can display text messages the TXT MSG on the telephone display will no longer be grayed out!


    In my 13 GLK it can only display and/or read out a text but you can use SIRI to respond by voice if you have a 4s or 5.

    I have just upgraded to an iphone 5 and when I have it bluetoothed to my 2012 c63 Mercedes and i get an incoming call the command system mutes the call when I answer it for about 5 seconds, has anyone else had this issue?

    No, I get calls all time with my iPhone 5 and no issues.


    One question, is your A/C or heater on or window open?  Back ground noise really affects talking on the phone through Bluetooth.

    I have the same problem as mentioned by Kudela, the phone mutes for a couple of seconds when i recieve a call and then works fine.  However, when i call out there are no problems.


    Been to MB dealership who advise this is a iPhone 5 issue as it did/has not happened on 4s or lower?


    any help is sorting this bug out would be helpful

    Thanks, this process worked for me. I have a 2011 MB C300. I had few errors during this process, but finally worked. Thank you again.
