2005 x3 - Doesn't display "Activate Phone"

I just picked up a 2005 x3 (11/04 production date) for my wife. I'm trying to get the bluetooth to work. I checked in the left rear compartment, the radio gizmo back there has the bluetooth symbol on it. The car has the premium package and BMW assist.

When I turn the key on, the radio display never shows "Active Phone". If I hit the R/T button the wheel, it says "Phonebook empty". I've done a lot of searching, read the manuals, etc...and I can't find an answer to this. Someone posted that if the radio never displays "Active Phone" that you need a software upgrade. Is this true? What specifically needs to be upgraded?
