if everything you posted in the last page is true, then I (and many others) will be ok for 75-90% of our usage anyway. not great, but acceptable, and certainly not a catastrophe. thanks for the info.

Yeah one of the main reasons I stay with ATT

Limited space? damn how much music do you guys have lol

i have i think 8gb on my HDD and that's plenty....


But with space, wouldn't it be more advantageous to get a USB or a portable external? You would have a lot of space then.

I don't know why you guys are so worked up over this. If you need music space just buy a laptop hard drive and an enclosure. Problem solved.

I'll be testing it fully to see what works and what doesn't. I don't see why an extension that plugs into the snap in and converts the 30 pin to the 8pin lightning connector wouldn't work.

If anyone is looking for a factory unlocked Verizon 4S 64gb white, let me know!
The Lighting adapter (30-pin to 8-pin) does not output analog video.

The difference between the USB port and the snap-in feature-wise is that the snap-in have connections for analog video.

Using the Ligthning adapter with the snap-in and sending $39 to me is the same thing.

Fortunately they don't actually pop up. iDrive just shows the little envelope icon in the upper-right corner of your nav display (or top status bar if you're in a different view) and it's up to you go to your Messages to see it. And if you're going to check a text anyway, better via iDrive than whipping out your phone IMHO.

But yes, that's why I disabled emails -- plus I waste enough of my life dealing with email as it is and I don't want them poisoning the fun I have driving my car.

I understand where you're coming from however you could always let the idrive read out the text message for you. It's no different than changing the radio or selecting a song from your playlist. I do find it alot safer than having to whip out my iphone seeing how it's almost always connected to the extremely short Y cable for music in the armrest.

FYI: iPhone 5 works perfectly with BMW Apps and my 2012 E92 M3, Combox firmware 3.5.4 . The biggest improvement that I could see was the inclusion of LTE... connecting to a BMW Apps Web Radio station is so fast now compared with the 4S 3G that it is not even funny.

No iPod Out just because the iPhone 5 does not output analog video.
