Compatible Bluetooth Cell Phones

I'm trying to decide which cell phone to go with for my 07' X5 4.8.
I'm with AT&T.
I have a treo 680 that was working for about a month, then stopped working. I went to the dealer and they said since it's not an approved phone, that they can just stop working.
Found out that if the phone book doesn't upload, that's a good indicator that it will eventually stop working.

Anyone else have any recent experiences, good and bad. And the type of phone and carrier.

Thanks.

Blackberry Curve 8310

I went for the AT&T Blackberry Curve 8310. Works fine. Loads the entire phone book.
Only issue, it seems to need to reconnect each time I re-enter the vehicle after the car has been shut off. Not sure if tat is normal. The phone asks me if I want to connect. Probably something I'm doing.

Thanks.
