Newbie Needs Help with Telephone Function

New to BMW & Forum. Just got a 2017 440i convertible. Trying to learn about all the functions it has is mind boggling. I had my 'encore' meeting with a "BMW genius", but that only helped slightly. Here's question: I have an iPhone6 (software up to date), paired it with car and it works fine using voice command or iDrive wheel. However, when I try to use telephone function button on steering wheel, supposedly I am supposed to get a list of recent calls(maybe 10 of them) visible in either in the Instrument Cluster or the HUD. I am supposed to be able to select one of these using the iDrive wheel and push the button on the steering wheel to make the call. Well, my list is only 2-3, and I cannot scroll to select. Dealer thinks software in BMW has to be updated, I am amazed that this car, being only 8 weeks old (or at least only 8 weeks in service) needs an update to anything already. Does he know what he is talking about; am I doing something wrong ? Has anyone ever encountered this ?
Thanks
luckstr

Yeah sounds like something is wrong -- on my car you press the phone button, and then rotate the thumb wheel to scroll and push on it to select.

Help with Telephone

Quadrun1,
My mistake. I was turning IDrive wheel NOT thumb wheel. All is OK when I do what I'm supposed to. Thanks for response.
