Please Vote: What kind of phone did you pair with your X5?

Well, end of my contract came up and passed already, so I am considering getting an Android phone, iPhone is 2nd in line (due to not being 4G and in my area painfully slow up/down speeds) and then Blackberry (forget about games or apps, purely business use)

Anyway, I have added few phones to the list, please vote and comment on what type of phone are you using with your X5. I am only interested in those who paired their device with iDrive and make use of audio streaming of web radios and stored music, as well as calling through blutooth, and what not. It would be nice if you also listed your favorite function/feature.

I just don't want to get a phone that will end up not being compatible with iDrive at all, and then be stuck with it for 2 years..

The pairing could be via USB, via bluetooth, or via Snap In adapter.
Thanks in advance all!

My parents have paired the iPhone4S without any problems. The streaming audio issue is not applicable for them since they have a 2010 model. I've paired my "dumbphone" Nokia 7230 in the past and can get the full phonebook and call functionality as well.

There are bunch if iPhone votes, but no Android.
Jeremy, which Android phone did you pair?

When you all pair your phone, can you skip songs from your steering wheel or does that require USB or Snap-In? I don't see android snap-in available yet.

The most important functionality for me is to be able to stream music from my phone. Either web radios or stuff I have on my phone, then call functionality & address book.
