    This issue was caused by the firmware/hardware differences between the iPhone 4 and 5. Apple needs to recognize the issue identified by their customers in this forum and step up. If Apple is unable or unwilling to correct this issue then I have no choice but to revert back to an iPhone 4S at their cost. I will use legal action if necessary.

    I would welcome that if someone did it....I've never seen so many people complain about the same thing without getting ANY signal from Apple that it's their problem to fix. If you need support, please email me at

    Hi, I have an Honda CRV 2012 and my iPhone 5 has the same problem. I called the Apple store and they made me reset the Network settings from the General features.  I am anxious to test it out later. They also gave me this link:

    Good Luck!

    If you've got a lot of saved wi-fi networks, I'd say it's not worth attempting the network reset because you'll lose all of thsoe saved networks, and also this is just Apple giving you a run around.  It does not work.

     

    What does correct the problem is iOS 6.1, so sit tight and wait for the release.  I have a 2012 CRV and installed the 6.1 beta(s) a few weeks ago.  Since then, every single call I've gotten while in my car has been perfect through bluetooth.  That's probably a sampling of 30-40 calls.

    Does the current beta of iOS 6.1 seem stable otherwise?

    It's been extremely stable for me.  I was very hesitant to try it on my phone, but I did it hping it addressed the bluetooht issues (after 6.0.1 let me down) and not only did it fix the bluetooth problmes with my CR-V, but I would never know I was running beta software on my daily device.  IT's been that solid.

    I have a question for Reign765.  If everything is working so well with your Iphone and your bluetooth, what are you doing on this message board?

    Every open forum has a few ignorant and immature members. My issue is with the dropped audio after 5-seconds on incoming calls through my car and motorcycle Bluetooth systems. According to a couple of helpful members, IOS 6.1 should fix my issue. I'll wait for it before trying anything else. If it does work, we were all correct that it is an iPhone 5 problem.

    Not sure if someone already said this (did not read all 15 pages of posts) but I was having the same problem with my 2010 Infiniti ex35 and my iPhone 5 Bluetooth. I went to general settings > accessibility >incoming calls and changed to speaker rather than default. The phone now works with Bluetooth as expected in the car (I just push the answer button in the car and it picks up on bluetooth). The drawback is that it defaults to speaker for incoming calls when I'm not in my car but I don't mind pressing an extra button to undo the speaker button when not in my car. It was the extra steps to change the audio source while driving when I was supposed to be hands free that was a big pain. At least it's somewhat of a workaround for now

    As ignorant as that question was I'm gonna answer it just for entertainment purposes since I get notifications for every post some cry baby decides write. So Yeah, I VERY long time ago I posted my resolution & what worked for US, NOW I get these annoying notifications that I read to laugh at when I'm bored Okaay? Not to mention I posted my resolution on this page, but HEY...YA know...it happens....ROTF!! So anyway, take care & good luck, hope 6.1 helps you all so I can stop getting these notifications. #SO ANNOYED #I LUFF MY NEW IPAD APPLE...YOU RULE!!!!!

    Man this sh** blows. I have all kinds of issues on my 2010 G37S Sedan with the iPhone 5.

    Same phone call issues everyone mentioned, bluetooth audio get's all garbled and skips after a few minutes of listening to Pandora or any other music app, and Siri or any other voice command app cuts out right after the beep.

     

    Soooo annoyed!!!
