can't get my iphone 3g to connect via bt

read the owners manual, read the help guide on bmwusa.com and searched the forum. still no worky.

i go to the setup screen on the idrive. i start the sync, my iphone finds bmw with last 7 of my vin. i select it and the iphone prompts me to select a passkey. i use 0000 and tap connect. the idrive then promps me to type the passkey i made on the iphone, i type the 0000. some time goes by and the iphone says unable to connect and the idrive displays a similar message.

what the heck am i doing wrong?!

how do you restart the idrive/navi? 1234, yeah tried that too, but i was also under the impression that the code was created by the user unlike the older bt systems which already had codes from the factory. correct?

search is your friend:
FYI you can force idrive to reboot itself by pushing and holding the volume dial and the cd eject button for 5 seconds or until you see the idrive screen go blank. You will not loose any custom settings. Just simply forcing a reboot.
