Quick question about texts on 2012 E92

I was at dealership yesterday and nobody could answer this question! WTF? They all had different opinions. It was like bad comedy. So I searched on here and never could find definitive answer. Maybe someone can give simple answer to these two questions if possible.

So here goes:

1) If BMW Apps are NOT installed, and you're using an iPhone 5, can you get text up on the screen to have read to you? And can you dictate reply to texts, (maybe via Sirior something)? Since I'm getting a manual transmission, being able to listen to texts would be most helpful without fumbling with my phone.

2) If Apps is the ONLY way to get this to happen, can it be retrofitted? One guy there said NO, another said Yes. Then they argued. Then I left since no one knew for sure.

Also I still do have my old iPhone 4 I use for music mostly. Not sure if that can be worked in somehow.

I was just so surprised that no one at the place really could give a straight answer.
