I didn't have a pairing button either (in the console)...there were 2 types of BT components (ULF & TCU). The console pairing button was for BMWs that came with phones installed in a cradle. There is a way to pair a non-cradled phone (like I did)...but again, you've gotta have the correct BT component plus the 4 digit pass key code.

Again, I'm really sorry I couldn't be of more help. But before giving up...try one of the popular nav/bluetooth forums like this can search or ask a question and I'm sure someone way more knowledgeable than me may be able to point you in a better direction:
