Bluetooth Music Streaming

2013 X3, Mineral Silver w/ Sports Activity/Premium Packages - I use my iPhone to listen to Pandora via Bluetooth Music Streaming. I get a little more music video info on the screen using the USB connector but cannot skip music. Anyone seen this and maybe found a way to get around it?

I use a Motorola Razr Bionic via Bluetooth. If I play Pandora I can skip the current tune with iDrive - but not go backward, of course, since it is streamed audio. I can, however, both skip and backup a tune via iDrive in the (Android) phone's My Music collection. While playing a stream like Pandora or Ustream the tune name on the vehicle display is not correct; it is usually the last one played from My Music.

I also find that I can play both Pandora (for music) and Ustream (for monitoring marine radio) simultaneously; in that case, the iDrive controls Pandora - most times. It might be that the order of app execution determines which is controlled. I'll play some more with this, but I believe you should be able to control your iPhone - but, if you cannot, the phone is likely at fault.
