How can Icopy my contact list to my car?

I successfully paired my phone with my new car but the contacts won't transfer. When I try to make a call by voice or manually the car says " list empty " or something like that. Any ideas?  Thanks

@derdog,

Having your contacts paired to your car is very convenient and safer than having to look them up on your phone. I definitely want you to stay safe while driving!

You did not mention your car model so I wasn't able to look up specific steps for your car but I have provided links to different manufacturers for pairing instructions.

I've been trying for a week to reply to you but for some reason the forum would not let me log on until today. I have a 2012 GMC Acadia and paired my Bionic via bluetooth without any problem (did the same thing with my previous 2009 Chevrolet Traverse).   However, contacts in the cell phone do not flow through to the vehicle's calling system and are not accessible via the vehicle's calling system. 

The vehicle calling system has its own separate voice activated directory.  To get contacts into the vehicle's directory, I must save the desired contact to the vehicle's calling system directory by following voice menu instructions -- speaking the number and then adding a name. 

When not using a paired cell phone, the system connects through OnStar.  It may help to take a further look at your car's owner's manual.
