Bluetooth can't be found sometimes

I have a 650i convertible 2008
Sometimes Bluetooth just gets disconnected and I can't reconnect anymore, until sometimes the next day.
It's confusing. The first time I took it to the dealer to fix this problem, they said the Bluetooth thingy is burned out completely, and wanted to replace it for $ 1200, . I thought this was crazy, so I was like, it's not worth it to do it,
The next day, the Bluetooth is working, so since it works sometimes, does it mean its burned out completely?
Are they lying to me?
Is there another way to fix it,? Or does anyone know if I could install a Bluetooth that streams music too, now that would be worth it.

Yes they were lying to you. I had a 2008 528i and it did the same thing so I called BWM North America. They told me that it was because my iPhone is newer than the car so the bluetooth wouldn't work with the version of the iPhone. I recently traded the 528i in for a 2006 650i and now it works fine with the iPhone 5. I called back to let them know that now I have a older model BMW but not experiencing the same problems. They didn't say much but when I was told the iPhone wasn't compatible, I knew they were lying and tried to explain to the lady at BMW North America that bluetooth is standard, it doesn't change, that's why you can just buy any bluetooth earpiece etc.

This happens to me only when I am connected then take the phone out of range. It won't always connect back up unless I turn the car off wait for a bit then turn it back on.
I finally realized that if I kept my phone in my pocket then get out of the car for some reason while its running then jump back in again the Bluetooth wouldn't work. So now I keep my phone in my cup holder.
