Help! Bluetooth - Insert Sim?

Hi everyone, this is my first time creating a thread (I have actually never even posted on this forum lol).

I have a 2004 (Oct. Build) 545i with in-built cordless telephone, that can be used once a valid full size "old-school" sim card is placed in the sim card holder in the centre console. Now, being year 2015, I prefer to have my mobile phone connected to my car instead via bluetooth.

I have managed to pair my Samsung Galaxy S4 with the car (iDrive says it's connected) however all the iDrive system does next is say "Insert Sim".

Is there any way of telling my car to stop looking for the sim card and instead look for my mobile phone via bluetooth?!

Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
