1-Press and hold the button with the "speaking face"on the steering wheel, then after about three seconds, turn the ignition key to position 1 and release the button after aproximately 3 seconds. "BLUETOOTH PAIRING" appears on the display or monitor.

2-Press the button again for approx. 10 seconds until you hear a triple accoustic signal.
"PAIRED DEVICES DELETED" appears on the display or monitor.

3-To conclude the deleting process, turn the ignition key to position 0.

All the phones that were originally paired are now deleted.
I tried this process on my 2007 X3 without Nav, and it didn't work. It's the same process documented in my X3's Telephone addendum to the owner's manual. I did manage to pair a new phone without deleting the old ones, but the radio display never changed to the "BLUETOOTH PAIRING" mode. BMW's instructions truly suck!
