It's Ver 4.0. Very simple process.

1. Turned on the phone's Bluetooth via the settings menu.

2. Turned to "Settings/Bluetooth/Pair a new phone" in the I drive menu.

3. When prompted by the phone, I entered a 4 digit password

4. When prompted by I drive to enter the same password, I enetered the same 4 digit password.

5. Phone comes back and states that BMW phone is requesting permission to access contacts list and call registry.

6. Click on "do not show again" and then "accept".

Phone list imports and everything is operational.

The process will not work if you do not click on "do not show again" in step 6. You must do this, then click on "accept"

Give it a try.
