Great thread. I've had the same problem and tried to use the manual with the exact same result (don't worry M3Ron, you're not alone!!!).
I also have the '09 with iDrive and full iPhone integration. Each of my Outlook contacts were effectively transfered to the iPhone, and then my iDrive (each time I get in the car). Question... under most of the names , there are 2-3 numbers listed (home, work, cell). How do I clarify the voice command for the correct number?
I.E: Lets say I have "Bob Jones" in my phonebook and there are 3 numbers... do I say, "Dial... Jones, Bob, cell"? I haven't gotten it to work yet.
