Mein Auto: 528i
Bluetooth static

I've had my 2012 528i for several months now and love it! Initially the dealer installed my Droid RAZR i never had any problems connecting, making calls or with reception until this week. I can make a call however on both ends all we hear is loud annoying static. Please help me!!! I unpaired my phone and the car then paired then again. no luck! just static.

I also tried putting my phone in the truck as suggested my someone that thought it had to do with reception again nothing but static. Oh yeah I also turned off the wifi on my phone still static.

I'd really appreciate help. I'm not a techie and i know even less about cars so please use layman terms...thanks

Couple of questions.

Does the phone have good reception normally? Have you verified by making a call from the same spot bit not using ur car audio?

Have you connected it to another at or headset to see if the problem follows?

Have you tried someone else's phone in your car? Please do, Nd report back.
