never heard of this. seems like it's going to be a setting or the bluetooth on your particular phone.

Phone company says its the car I would tend to believe that as I tried my wifes phone same problem. I also tried my sons Motorola e815 could'nt even get it to hook up or find phone but my Dads 08 accepted his e815 no problem!

I would say it's the nav unit (which also includes the Bluetooth feature). My E815 works well with our 2005 STS.

Search around this forum a bit and you will see many threads about how bad the BT is and how few phones work 100%. GM only supports three phones that have been long since discontinued. Don't bother calling support, they won't help. Besides updating the head unit software, the dealer won't help either. I say gook luck with your issue.

Read this thread. Months back, I spoke with GM engineering and Denso, the manufacturer of the units...

The other thing to remember is that once you get the phone and car to pair, you have to tell the car that the phone is the default option. Then it will see it everytime. That solved my hit and miss problem once I got it paired.
