The phone may be trying to dial without a valid number. I'm not sure what is going on but here are the steps you need to make it work. I don't know how much you already know or have done....
1. First determine if your X3 is bluetooth equiped. I believe on '06 models it came with the Premium package. I don't know about '07 or other years.
2. Make sure your phone is bluetooth equiped. Check the web site in their features/accessory areas to see which phones are known to be compatible. Others may work even if not on the list.
3. Do you have numbers and names programmed in your phone?
4. Synchronize your phone with the car. This can be tricky but there are instructions (and a code number that is needed) in a car with the owners manual. You also need to reference bluetooth procedures in your phone's manual. This only needs to be done once. The phone book is automatically read in each time you get back in the car.

Now to use it:
1. Press the R/T button on the steering wheel. The first name in your phone's adress book should show up in the radio display (or Nav if so equiped).
2. Use the search up/down buttons on the wheel to find who you want to call.
3. NOW press the "talk" button. It will dial that number.
