Please update both the "desktop" software and the 7100's firmware to the highest levels on blackberry support site. I have heard from others that it will solve most issues (such as hanging up on prior calls). This update made the phone 96% for me (2006 E90/BB7520). The phone book will still not transfer but everything else should work fine.

My BMW service manager emailed me to tell me that RIM and BMW are know working on making the latest BB's "approved" at which point they should be 100%.
