: 550 vs 750 issue

Dealer paired my Motorola KRZR phone with new 750i at delivery. The same phone that sync'd so well with my 550i. After two quick trips, the entire sound system began making static and the phone stopped working via bluetooth. Back to the dealer (so hard to give it up for a day) so they could "reprogram" the iDrive and get it back to normal.

Dealer gave me a brand new 328i sedan loaner, which really confused the folks at work when they saw yet another new bimmer in my spot. I went over to Verizon store and bought a BMW "approved" RAZR, and back to dealer. (I decided against BMW approved Blackberry or Motorola Q).

All working fine, no issues. My wallet's just $219 lighter for new phone, but my friend, Kari, is gonna be so happy when I give her a practically new KRZR phone.

It's interesting that an '06 550 has a diferent bluetooth system than an '07 750i.

The KRZR has the exact same Bluetooth stack as the RAZR, sounds like you had probably a bad Krzr or it needed a simple repairing.

You really didnt need to buy that Razr..
