Both the car's system and your phone need to be placed into "Discovery Mode" - then they can find each other.  How you do that depends on the specific phone you have (steps are different with different devices) and your car's system (your owner's manual will give instructions for setting up bluetooth).

It may take a few attempts to get the sequence right, and get the pairing done, but hopefully your phone and car are compatible and will work together for you.

Not applicable

Look in your owners manual or auto connection guide and or visit the dealers support department.

I am not sure a Basic Phone can connect to a vehicles hands free/text systems. It may be able to but the manual and dealership know for sure.

Good Luck
