I sure did.

Here's what happens:

Actively using iPhone --> Call Comes in --> iPhone music dims, pauses --> phone rings & displays nicely on the phone and iDrive

Everything works as you would expect.

Now, I rejected the call in my test, so I don't know if this makes a difference:

Rejected call using iDrive (not the phone) --> Returned to the AUX display to the song I was playing --> iPhone remained paused --> hit the "on/off" knob next to the CD insert TWICE --> music resumed as normal.

Now, I imagine that my "rejecting" the call may have confused the device, I think I would have had different findings had I accepted. Regardless, the bottom line is that the iPhone works using the iPod connecter for music WHILE you have the bluetooth enabled for use as a phone. Your contacts show up fully as expected.

The only thing that did NOT work flawless for me was the return of music "unpausing" after I rejected the call.
