Question Help with Phone/Bluetooth 2006 X5

Help! I was so excited to drive my new-to-me 2006 X5 home last night. I had read up on Bluetooth pairing before I bought the vehicle and I knew it had the phone capability. I am so bummed today that is isn't working. I have been reading on line all day and trying different things, but cannot get it to work. The vehicle is equiped with the phone system. When you press the phone button a voice even asks you for a command and it does respond when you try to add numbers vocally but then says "cannot complete". When I try to pair my cell phone (I do have the PassKey Code on the white card), the bluetooth in my phone even finds the BMW Bluetooth, recognizes it and asks for the code. After entering the code, it won't pair. It is possible that the vehicle's phone needs to be activated somehow? What can I try?
