It would work over the speaker/mic system with no worries. Now, I can use voice command to select a contact and when I command it to call, it just doesn't do anything. If I use idrive to make a call and click on a contact, nothing happens. Same with steering wheel button. Additionally, if a call comes in, I can't accept it via idrive or steering wheel. I have to hit accept on the phone. Same with making a call. I hit the call button on the phone and then it switches over to the cars mic/speakers.
The dealer said the phone is not compatible. If that is case then why did it work for the first two weeks? They also said i shouldn't use it or I void any warranty. But they are the ones that paired the phone in the first place.
My phone stopped working with the car perfectly this weekend after my buddy also paired his iphone with the car. I think it interrupted something in the system.
I took his out but my phone still won't work completely.
I don't think the service guys really understand the system.

Maybe resetting the hard drive?

Any thoughts?
I am having similar problems with my Blackberry Bold 9700. No, this phone is not on the official BMW compatibility list. But the phone worked great the first month I had it. Now, over the last week or so, it has simply stopped working with the car. It will appear in the phone list on the screen, and the phone shows the BMW in its list. But it will not completely pair now. And calling, contact transfer, etc, no longer works at all. Something changed somewhere and the whole Bluetooth functionality simply stopped working, after it worked great for a month. Any ideas?
