2008 535xi bluetooth broken?

Anyone had the following issue? I have a 08 535xi, that my iphone 4s was paired with for as long as I've had the phone. I got the increased battery discharge message, and had a local BMW shop replace the battery and sync everything.

Since having that done, the warning light is gone, comfort system & everything else is working normally, but I can no longer pair my phone with my car. My car says bluetooth is active and I get to the pair new phone option, but once I press that, my phone never discovers the BMW. The phone picks up every other bluetooth piece of equipment in the area (headphones, other cars, ect) but not my BMW. I've turned it off and on, same with phone. I read through the users manual, but I can't find a solution.

Is there a reset switch somewhere? Could the chip have been burned out during the battery change and there isn't a error warning light to detect it? It appears to me that the bluetooth is not turned on.

Frustrated and looking for a solution,

I would take it back to the shop. Let them do the leg work. It happened while there. At least they should determine what is wrong with it. Be it the module burnt or whatever.
