idrive no telephone option

E92 2009 m3 Just bought the car....shouldn't there be a telephone option underneath "radio" and above "navigation"? It is not there currently.

I don't have the premium package...is that what is needed to connect my phone via bluetooth?

PO did mention he took the car to the dealership and they worked on the idrive so he could see the song title/artists from his ipod on the screen...could they possibly have deleted the telephone function?

Your vehicle must not have the requisite "combox" installed.

You can find out if you have a phone by looking for:

1. If there's a TCU under the trunk mat,

2. If there is a BMW assist SOS button at the bezel above the interior mirror.

If you don't have these, that means that your car was not ordered with the phone option. If your car is made prior to 03/09, it is an easy retrofit as the car was prewired for that up to MY 03/09. If not, then it is still possible to retrofit but it is more complex.
