If you have the audio bluetooth on in the idrive telephone set up and you connect the iPhone with the USB cable, the bluetooth audio is turned off, but your iphone bluetooth is still on.

Southern6er and Itinj6 thanks for your continued efforts.
Try to remove bmw from your iphone and to remove all bluetooth phones from your bmw idrive. Then turn off all notifications from your iPhone and then restart the pairing process between your BMW and iPhone. After that go to bluetooth in your iPhone and turn notification and then go to general notifications in the iPhone and turn them on. If still you do not get SMS notifications in idrive while connected then start turning messages notification off and then on.
My iPhone started not connecting and I tried all these and after a few tries everything started working again, meaning SMS all the time. Emails, whatsApp, vibe only will work if you turn off and then on these app notifications with each start.
