Is this something that not all of the BT systems have? I do not even have an option for SMS in the menu as the driving manual shows?
Not all phones export SMS via Bluetooth. I don't think any of the BT Motorola phones do. On my 325 w/ NAV and ULF I have a SMS sub-option in the phone menu, but it always says "no messages". The 5 is probably smart enough to hide the option if the phone doesn't support it in the profile.
