Thanks icu for your post.

I have a 2011 build date Oct 2010 w/ the combox. Before I went to the website, I went out to my car to write down what software ver I currently have and it shows bluetooth ver TX-003.004.031 So I went to the website put in my VIN# and chose Verizon and then iPhone 5, it showed that an update is available for my car.

It said Bluetooth software version after I do the software update will now be: TX-003.005.004 So I put the file on a memory stick and went to my idrive and downloaded the update, it said my car had to be running to do the update, so after the update processed. I checked to see what software I currently have and it shows: TX-003.005.005

So that means the downloaded file contains a newer ver than what it states on the website because it said I was going to get TX-003.005.004 but I actually now have TX-003.005.005

My iphone 5 has not arrived yet still on order, so I can't try it out yet, but my Htc droid incredible still works like it did before. I just hope when my new iphone arrives it will work with the new lightening cable and I don't have to get the 30 pin adapter.

If 5 Unread is checked, then change to 10 unread Items, or vice versa. This has to be done everytime you start the car up. As I said, its a bug in the system, and will probably not work in future iOS versions.
Thank you so much my fellow Bimmerfester, by changing the number of unread items each time on the iPhone the e-mails are now coming through. It's a pain in the rear but with a 90-minute drive each day it helps to get through some e-mails. I am hoping BMW will update its software shortly to fix the bug. My Blackberry never had such problems.

Thanks again and happy holidays.

Not a problem, but unfortunately it's Apples issue and from what I hear they do not support emails, just SMS

I just picked up an iphone5 yesterday...replacing BB which had email functionality. I do get emails and text but I do have to change mail notification from banner to alert then lock the phone every time I enter car...right after phone connects. Only do this for long drives. Once connected...phone can be unlocked and emails and texts still come through or just keep it locked and same thing 5 sec procedure for those who really want email. I used it very little with my BB so while I am glad to have it available...not a critical feature

SMS integration is working excellent for me. I don't have to change anything when I get in the car, it always works.

Only problem I have been having is that my DragonDrive outbound messaging isnt working. It works for wdimagineer but not for me. That's annoying because I really badly need this feature.

Like many was having trouble finding site to download update. So checked the CIC and it say "www.BMW.com/update", gee, now everything is an easy menu click.

I have an iPhone 4S on the media cradle which I just updated to iOS 6.01. I see no difference between 6.0 and 6.01 in terms of functionality. All the message menus are still there, I still apparently get text messages, and emails if I turn off alerts and turn back on again.

My other phone is a Galaxy Nexus operating with Android Jelly Bean, 4.1, I get no messages at all...FWIW. I thought 4.1 incorporated MAP protocol.
