Email Not Working

I am having similar results to others who have reported that email is not working on the iDrive. My Office menu has some new features other than contacts, however, it does not populate emails received while connected, nor does it populate texts not received while connected. I have yet to test texts received while connected, and will advise.

I have latest firmware for the car, and I have iOS 6 in an iPhone 4s from Verizon. I will keep you posted about further testing, and will check with dealer tomorrow.

I am somewhat relieved that the music/album functions appear to remain intact using the new lightning cable, but I prefer the cradle so may wait for that before upgrading to iPhone 5.

Situations like this are a perfect illustration of the need for better communication between tech suppliers like Apple and car manufacturers--apparently such compatibility issues can affect sales on both interesting world we live in.....
