Users report issues across a wide range of vehicles
Windows Phone 8, Microsoft Corp.'s (
) latest and greates mobile operating system
launched last month
. In the last couple weeks as the
first devices have become available
there have been growing
reports of serious bugs
The latest issues reported have been problems with the phone's Bluetooth connectivity. According to
seven pages of user complaints
, the new phones are failing to connect across a wide range of makes and models from various automakers. Calls over Bluetooth have also been getting dropped or put on hold.
Some users report having successfully used Windows Phone 7.5 devices with their vehicles for months, only to lose support when they upgraded.
So far there's been no word from Microsoft on when a fix may arrive.
In our last piece on Windows Phone 8 bugs, some commenters took issue with our reporting on the problems, arguing they weren't widespread. DamianRobertJones comments:
I call 'rubbish' on this article.
There are issues, sure, but as far as I can see/am aware it's not serious... yet
And Varun responds:
I agree 100% and this thread seems to point to some very happy people:
Let us know what you think -- should we not cover these issues? Do you consider them a serious problem? Would it be unfair to cover the iPhone 5's
battery life/wallet-draining data bug
, but not report on Windows Phone 8 bugs? Or does Microsoft deserve some slack since it's still trying to emerge as a serious competitor?
Have you been affected? Let us know your thoughts, we're listening.

I'm in Australia and having this issue....

I have a 2011 Subaru Forester XS which my Lumia 800 and iPhone 3GS had no issues syncing with. With the new Lumia 920 it synced initially but would only play one song. If I tried to change track it would show the new track on the phone but would not play. I deleted the phone from the system to try and fix the issues. Not it won't work at all. I can get it to pair, but it just locks the phone up requiring me to do a three button reset. It's a bit disappointing really. And if you chuck in the issues with trying to sync music and videos via windows 8, it downright frustrating.
