Can I have two bluetooth phones...

with different cell numbers connected to my Z4 at the same time so that if I
get a call on either phone (not at the same time) the calls will work on bluetooth in the car when either cell number is called?
I hope I stated this clearly.

you can "pair" multiple phones, but if all the phones are in the car at the same time, only the one you choose as "priority" will connect above others.

e.g.: lets say you pair your phone and your wife's phone. you can assign your phone to have priority when both of you are in the car, in other words, when both of you are in the car your phone will "pair" and hers wont at all. but lets say she drives your car alone, her phone will "pair" and she'll be able to use it.

another example would be if you have lets say your iphone and your work's crackberry. you can assign priority to whichever you feel should have the priority to "pair" when both phones are in the car. so, if you give priority to your crackberry, when your lets say cruising on the weekends and you only have your iphone, the iphone will "pair" with no problem at all, but during the week, while you have both on you, the crackberry will "pair" and if you receive a call on your iphone you'll have to pick it up manually.

can confirm this ! although when I get into my wifes car first, and her phone has priority, then my phone connects and when my wife then gets in the car, it does not override my connection.

There's a list in the Bluetooth menu showing the phone priorities. You can move them around as you see fit.

I imagine that once the phone is connected, it stays so even if the "priority" phone comes into the car. However if you were to stop and restart the car, then the priority phone would connect.
