Question about Idrive, telephone, bluetooth related.

Hello, I'm wondering if phonebook (numbers) show up in your idrive when you connect the bluetooth to your car (iphone4).

when i connect thru the bluetooth, it doesn't show up the numbers from phonebook, but it does show up when i connect it thru cradle.

how can i make the idrive show up the phone numbers when i link the bluetooth?

thank you.

I think this may just be a glitch with my phone, but when I accept a call, it doesn't show me who it is.

However, if I'm on a call and I get another call, it does tell me who the caller is.

It's weird.

what phone do you have? Have you searched on this forum based on your phone model to see if others had same issue? I think it might be a phone software issue, but BMW may be able to help as well, i thought i saw somewhere where they had a list of all phones that can sync up to new 2009+ I-Drives.

I also have the old CCC 2008 I-Drive, my BT works seamlessly, and shows the full address book, i even use a dumb phone too (not smartphone)
