Hello, i tried to connect my phone Sony XA2plus h4413 with build (two sims inserted) with two different cars (VW and BMW) and both show the same behavior. The phone pairing always the 2nd inactive SIM instead of the active one and i can't find a way the stop this. Any suggestions to stop this?

Hello! Yes i've got the same problem. The best en most practical solution is to switch the simcards. The other option is to disconnect your second sim in the settingsmenu (settings > SIM > dissable sim 2) and than make a call, after that first call you can enable the second SIM again. It will work until you restart the phone. Please let me know if it will work for you!

I'v got also other troubles with connecting in my BMW, somethimes it loses connection for a few seconds and after a few seconds the connection will be automaticly recoverd, do you recognise this problems too?

Hello! Thanks for your hint / workaround, but Jolla should solve such bug, because this is not what you expect.

Concerning lose of connection: I installed SailfishOS at my XA2plus some days ago. Thus i didn't recognise any connection failures till now.

But there are other issuses which should be changed,e.g. telephone app: immediate calls when you tap on an entry, but your intension was to scroll up/down. It would be nice if they implement an additional window asking if you want to call, write a message ore cancel (like MeeGo @ Nokia N9). But this and other aspects should be written in a new tag.

Isn't that already in Settings -> Apps -> Phone app -> Call immediately (rough translation). After unticking taping number/name opens info page. I use it to avoid accidental calls.

@mitterberger Yes you're right, it needs to be fixed. I've got also a lot of strange bugs and I hope it will be fixed in next update. But when I started to use sailfish I was more hopefull the system would be complete and workable, but unfortunately there are a lot of issues.

@mSorvisto yes you're right somethimes the functions are really hidden in the system. Like the call log I couldn't find it for one week, it was grouped by each contact.

@Nickname, I face the same BT connection instability between an Xperia X (dual sim, single used) and a bmw (f10/CIC).

At least since one or two SFOS releases it auto-reconnects rather quickly - which is a big step forward compared to 2.x and early 3.
