That's not true. Certain Android phones with MAP have limited office functions

Doesn't work well at all. My text messages don't sync up. Its supposed to work with my Samsung Galaxy S2, but barely does, which is why I don't really consider it.

You need a BB if you want solid support

Hello, I had a 2011 X5 35i with March build in 2010, I have problem with pairing the bluetooth with my Samsung Galaxy S2, the connection would breaking out all the time. I can pair the phone with my car, however, when I am talking over the bluetooth, the connection just disconnected. I ask the dealer for help, they told me that my phone is not compatible. Do you encounter any issue with your car and phone? My bluetooth version on my car is 9231090

I had been using an Android phone up until a couple of months ago and then switched to a T-Mobile Radar (WP7). I was surprised to find that when I got a text message while driving, it now alerts me, gives me the option of having it read to me, and replying, all through voice. My old phone didn't do any of these. It was a nice surprise.

That has nothing to do with connection to iDrive though. You will get same functionality with your headset.

Unfortunately, the iDrive does not integrate with any Windows Phone devices, the way it does with iPhone. Ironically, iDrive runs on Windows CE.

The latest software update to iDrive doesn't have anything for Windows Phone.

No, but it was certainly a step up from what I was getting before. Besides, I figure that emails and calendar can wait. SMS is a little bit more immediate.
