    Hi Lads.
    Merc c.class c220 cdi 2008 estate.

    tried to connect my phone samsung galaxy s3 to blue tooth.
    Phone Connects but not address book.
    Instructions say "After confirming passkey by selecting ok
    a pop up box should appear"
    Contacts/phone book request MB would like to access phone book allow mb access select ok.

    It skips this and says authorisation successful.
    The phone accepts calls and sends calls NO PHONE BOOK.

    connected same phone to wifes golf no problems.

    What system are you trying to connect to (COMAND/Audio 40/etc)?

    I don't think I can help, but it might narrow it down for someone who knows what they're talking about.

    I use one of the ViseeO pucks and it just works... except that I can't tell which phone number it's going to dial from COMAND so it's hit and miss whether I get home, work, or mobile.

    When I connected my Bluetooth phone to my 2008 C Class years ago I had to import the records from my phone, the procedure is in the manual, it's a bit long and tedious as you have to do them individually as I recall.

    On older phones you don't always get a pop up, keep an eye on your notification bar as you pair it as it only hangs around for a few seconds.

    From memory, if that is what's happening, you'll need to delete the phone from the head unit and start again if you missed it first time.
