You can get a replacement cellphone from BMW; it's probably still available but it is ancient technology. Why go that route when you can just get a Bluetooth Upgrade Module (BTUM) that will fit into the BMW OEM cellphone cradle for around $200 that will allow you to use any cellphone with BT and sync with your iDrive? This should be a direct fit for your car. Check at your dealer, on ebay or search the archives in here for more info.

I had no idea a "Blue Tooth Module" was available from the dealer; I'll check it out later today.

Is it about $200 ? any idea?

you can use it i used to log into verizon and just switch esn's for long trips and it was fine. Bluetooth is the way to go but for 20 bucks it works.

Verizon does not work everywhere! Only AT&T. AT&T works every freaking where. It was tested in the Moon and Space Shuttle, including the Space Station. Can'tr beat that!
