Unhappy Bluetooth pairing Verizon Galaxy S3 with 2012 535i

I purchased a Galaxy S3 from Verizon a few months ago, paired it to my 2012 535i and everything worked well. In August, SMS messages and the phone book no longer synchronized with the car. I believe this coincided with a BMW connected drive software upgrade. In September, Verizon did a software upgrade to the Galaxy S3 which now seems to have destroyed all connectivity to the car. I've tried re-pairing but the connection breaks off after a minute or so and keeps reestablishing itself a number of times after which the Bluetooth pairing menu shows on the car display along with the request to pair a phone. At this point, all previously paired phones have been deleted from the car menu.

The car's Bluetooth connection works flawlessly with an AT&T Atrix. Has anyone experienced similar problems, know of a solution?

Thank you!
