Anyone having problems bluetooth dropped calls in car?

Just about to get an Iphone 5 .

I have been reading quite a few comments from car drivers who say their Iphone 5 drops calls or cant answer calls in their cars.

Its not just 1 manufacturer so the problem seems to be with Apple.

I desperately need the phone to work in the car so before i order mine i would greatly appreciate knowing whether this is a widespread issue.

OP, my AT&T iP5 works perfectly in my FX35 via Bluetooth. I have not had any issues since launch day. I trust you have the same experience. Enjoy your new iP5.

No problems here with our Lexus RX 400h. The Nissan Rogue's BT system has had intermittent problems regardless of the device paired with it. It generally works well but it does have its issues.

Get the 5 and try it out. Don't rely on forum posts to assess the problem.
