I've yet to find an update that fixes this.

I had the same problem with my BB7290 and 05 Z4. I upgraded my BB to version 4.0 which solved the problem partially. I can pair the phone with the Z4 and use the mic and speakers with the phone but I can not control the phone from the steering wheel or transfer contact information. This is an acceptable solution versus using a BT headset.

I had a new problem last week though.. I had an alarm installed in the Z4 and the Bluetooth quit working! The car is at the dealer today trying to get this problem fixed. They are upgrading the code in the ECU.
