Activate Phone?!

Hi

I just acquire a 03' 4.4i Sport with comms pack. Last weekend I paired by phone with the car and it worked! I could use the functions and the address book was transferred effortlessly.

Yesterday however, when I switched on the bluetooth on my phone, it either did not connect or did not pair or whatever, basically, whenever I pressed on the phone buttons, its says "Activate Phone". So I started the whole pairing process again, deleted the BMW device from my phone, etc. etc. Basically, I messed the whole thing up and now there's just an "activate phone" whenever I press the telephone buttons.

Do any of you guys know whats wrong, and how to rectify this? Will be a great help. Thanks.

have you made your phone visible to all? When I first had bluetooth with my 6310i, if it wasn't visible to all it would not pair after the initial pairing.

Other thing to do is when pairing starts to search for audio devices from the phone to see if it can see the BMW.

Thanks for the quick reply.

The phone does register the BMW device. But what does "visible" to all mean? Is it the "discoverable" option?

yes - different phones use different terminology.
