Yep! That did it. The phone now pairs and works. No phone book but thats fine. The voice recognition works great.

I do have two issues: when using the phone, i get an echo on my voice only. not the other person, just me. Also, once a call is connected, I can no longer adjust the volume on the handset. It goes to about 40% and is locked there. I have tried setting the phone to always use 100% but it reverts back to 40% when a call connects thru the car. I wonder if I could get the volume on the phone to be higher if I could avoid some of the echo by turning the volume down on the car???? I currently have the car volume way up during calls. The volume is ok there ( I can hear th caller fine) but it is way up.

Thansk for any help everyone. And thanks to Moon for getting me working at all.


PS- BMW says that the BB devices WILL NOT WORK AT ALL WITH BMW CARS. Hah! Funny.
