Hi Brittany and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the phone. Still, with most phone models / instances and during the pairing dialog, the phone would show the message "Do not show this message again" or words to that effect. Enabling this feature would save the pairing code and handshaking protocols resulting to auto-connection whenever the phone is nearby; i.e. of course with the Bluetooth turned on.

The phone is an iPhone 6. I do not remember seeing a message like that to save the feature on my phone. Please advise what else I can do. Thank you

Which Bluetooth box was used/installed with the Alpine IVA-W205?Have you tried unpairing/forget/delete all other Bluetooth devices except the iPhone 6 from the Alpine IVA-W205?

Im not sure what that means, I bought the car with the radio upgraded already! When I initially started to use the radio it stayed paired but in the last several months it does not anymore. I haven't changed anything in the setup that I know of.

Have you tried performing a RESET of the phone's network settings? ...delete CAR AUDIO in the phone? ...perform a repairing?Apologies for delays Brittany as on the road/mobile with sluggish Internet connectivity if at all.
