X3 LCI BMW assist activation

I currently have owned mine for a month now and the BMW assist is still unable to be activated. Several reps on the SOS button says that there is a coding error for the 2015's on BMW's end that has not been resolved yet. Can anyone else that has already picked up there new X3 confirm if they are having this problem or not.

Didn't they have this issue also on the 14 and 13 models? Seems like this happens all the time the first 1-2months when new cars are released.

Picked up my 2015 two weeks ago. BMW Assist told me the same thing. They told me to check the remote app each week to see if it works. The rep said there are so many they will not be contacting anyone by phone. Just keep trying.

Picked up my 2014 x3 in April and it was June before I was able to use the BMW On-Line function.

When I bought my '13 535xDrive in Dec 2012 my BMW Assist was activated the night I drove off the dealer's lot.
