Bluetooth phone question

Yes I serched and searched but no luck.

so My 330i 2002 was damadged in the flooding we had in TORONTO few weeks ago.
damn Dinon mods.

Well now I am an owner of the 2009 328i w/nav.

i was told the phone/bluetooth is already hooked up and BMW dealership confirmed this , HOWEVER.
pressing the button or looking for the "TELEPHONE" section on the idrive it does not appear.
BMW told me something is wrong with my computer and they would have to bring the car in etc and "dissect" the problem.

So before I did that I figured I'd ask the real experts and see your thoughts on trying to fix this or do I not have a choice to but to bring it in?

I hope i have given enough info to help get started if not please let mek now any more info you might need and thanks in advanced.

can the phone itself find the car when you turn on the bluetooth?

I can't get into the idrive to turn bluetooth on, it doesn't show "TELEPHONE"
My blackberry z10 doesnt find any bluetooth in the car.

I'm going to guess " not compatible " especially if your phone can't find the Bluetooth in the car!

........I don't think you are understanding me or I'm not typing correctly as Ido have bad spelling.

The Idrive in the BMW does not show "TELEPHONE" so I cant turn on or off the Bluetooth , i tried this with an iphone , samsung and the Blackberry. but that doesnt even matter as the car is not showing telephone.
I'm trying to find a way to get the section or coding turned back on or ?????

The iDrive doesn't have a "Telephone" option. It's under Communication, Phone.

To enable bluetooth, it's under vehicle settings I believe. Or somewhere in the settings menu.
