Bluetooth Question

Hello there,
I had a question about my blue tooth on my 05' X5. I have it paired with my iphone but after its paired on the dash I see it say 'Active Phone'. I'm just not sure what that means and how I will be able to get it to sync with the BMW. Any help?

Thanks
-MJ

After mine pairs there's nothing else that need be done.
It doesn't sync it downloads your phone book, you choose
a number and press the talking face.

if it says 'activate phone', then it's not paired. i have never seen 'active phone.'

Yes I was noticing that too. As soon as on my phone I see it as paired, I look on the dash and I see it says Activate Phone. Also on the Dash if I press the telephone button is says Please Wait... for a long long time. Unless I make it go away it doesn't. Do you think I should d/c it and try again or just take and ask the dealer next time?

Thanks!
