Switching phones

Does anyone know how to change the connected phone when 2 people have phones that are paired. When my wife an I are out together, it seems that her phone connects, but I am driving. I would like to swith from her phone to mine. Currently, we turn hers off, and then wait for mine to connect. Is there a better way? Thanks.

You can do it in iDrive. I've done that when my wife wants to make a call. We selected her phone on the menu and it switched the pairing.

If you have the enhanced Bluetooth (technology package in 2013 US model I believe) you can have two phones paired and active at once.

I believe you have to enable "additional phone" then you can set her phone as "additional phone".

I know that with the technology package, you can have up to 4 phones paired and connected to the system but only one active at a time. You can switch back and forth between connected phones . This can be done from the Bluetooth menu under Settings.

Please see pages 193-197 of the manual for information on setting up a second phone as "additional phone" if your vehicle has enhanced Bluetooth.

Quote:
Additional telephone
A mobile phone can be used as an additional telephone.
The additional telephone can be used to accept
incoming calls, refer to page 196. While a call is
active on the additional telephone, received
calls are displayed on the Control Display.

Thanks to all for the replies. We have the Ultimate Package, so we should be covered. We have both phones setup, so we will play with it some more.
Thanks again.
