Bluetooth stopped working on 2006 x5

My bluetooth all of a sudden stopped working on my 2006 x5. Is there a way to reset the system? Even pressing the "SOS" button doesn't produce a dial tone to BMW roadside assistance. "Activate Phone" doesn't even display on the radio display when I press the phone button. Any suggestions? It's definitely not a problem with my mobile phone.

If you hit Menu on the nav monitor, does Telephone even show up? If not, then the iBus is not recognizing the TCU module.

If you don't have NAV - then the only way I've found to reset it is to either disconnect the battery or disconnect power to the bluetooth module itself.
