Default PSA for Windows Phone 8 users (Bluetooth Sync)

This PSA is about how to connect your windows phone to Bluetooth on a 08-13 WRX. I imagine it would work with any other subaru that has the same base head unit. It may also work for other phones, but I only have experience with mine.

So I recently upgraded to a Windows Phone, the HTC 8X, and already had issues with the phone connecting through Bluetooth in my 2012 WRX. It seemed that it would not connect automatically with the head unit and thus i had to manually connect it each time i started the car.

But thankfull through the glory that is Google search i found the answer.

My previous phone, DroidX, had been connected to my head unit and stored. Whenever I started the car it looked for this phone first, even though my Windows phone was also stored on the head unit.
Trying to delete my DroidX with the menu buttons did not work. I read somewhere though that if you use the VOICE ONLY commands from the steering wheel it would work fine.
So I pressed the "Talk" button and said "Setup">"Phone Setup">"Delete" then it had me say the name of the phone (which was not DroidX). SO when the phone name came up i just pressed in the right dial (tune/track/ch) on the head unit. It then asked me to say "Confirm", and I did and then everything was cleared. Then still using the VOICE ONLY commands I paired the phone with the head unit "Setup">"Phone Setup">"Pair Device". Then it asks you to name you device and gives you the passkey. Enter it on the phone and DONE! Now it syncs perfectly on its own when i get in the car.

Just wanted to let people know so they don't go through the same headache I did.
Who knows, maybe it was just my car, but I've heard of other people having the same issue.

Yea - I had the same problem and someone else had that same idea. It worked great. Now if Pandora would stay turned off when I turn the car off instead of starting up again after I put the phone in my pocket I would be happy.
