Appears to usually be the phone that is detected first, so it's a race to see who can get close to the car first...

Tesla should be able to handle multiple BT devices at the same time - which would make this much easier...

Easy enough to switch when you are in the car. Would be nice if it showed the name of the phone in the header next to the BT icon.[/QUOTE]

Not based on any scientific research, but my kids all have their phones set up as devices, and from what I gather, it connects to whichever device was last connected. ie - If my phone was originally connected, when my daughter switches to her phone, then we get out of the car for a stop then get back in later, hers is connected.

From my experience, it's usually the phone that you don't want to connect that actually does connect...

The real answer is probably the first phone detected or last phone connected, but this one is the BEST answer! :D

Our MX has 5 phones paired and somehow it always connected to our son's iPhone on the weekend when we all got into the car.

Hopefully that will come eventually. I know I've been in other cars that can pair with two phones at once and either one of them were able to receive incoming calls.
