Mein Auto: 650i
iPhone 4GS Viewing Contact Issue

I have a 2010 650i convertible. I had to replace my 4GS iPhone and the orginal phone was a 4GS. I have the cradle for the 4GS; however, my contact list does not show on the screen. Any suggestions on what this could be or how to go about figuring out the issue? Dealership not much help.

Did you check the Bluetooth settings on your new iPhone? Is "Synch Contacts" set to on & contacts checked? Delete the olde 4GS from you Bluetooth Menu on the car too.

Thanks for your response. I do have an additional for you. You advised to make sure Sync Contacts is on and Contacts checked on the iPhone. Exactly what are the steps tondo this?? I only see a setting under iCloud for contacts. Thanks Again

This setting is in the Bluetooth Menu on your phone. I have included red arrows on where to click:

1.Settings ->



2a. (You might have to select "General" next if you ave not updated your iPhone to iOS6, if you have, skip to next step)

2b. Bluetooth ->

3. Select the "BMW 00000" entry, click the arrow in the blue circle next to the entry (note the 00000 here is unique to your car, it is the last 5 digits of your vin)->



4. Set the "Synch Contacts" toggle button to "On"

5. Select "All Contacts" & you should see a tick mark next to it. You canalso do Phone favourites & Phone Recents if you wish too.



6. Done!

Hi,
I have 2007 650i which is connected via bluetooth to my iPhone 4GS as above but still no contacts list comes across. It sits there for ages as if its reading the contacts or something but nothing ever happens.
Is this a bluetooth imcompatability issue?
