In reviewing the list of phones with cradles that are compatible with the car, they're all at least a year old, and most are discontinued by the carrier.
Is there a newer list that shows recent bluetooth phones that can be used with a cradle on the car?
If not, why is BMW so slow to support current phones?
I can see the idea of BMW using bluetooth as the only link method since it is "supposed" to be a universal way to link devices together. The "hard wire" links of the older phones are all properity and would require a seperate profile of each type of phone.
When I went to pick up my car I was in the same boat, I have an older phone without bluetooth and was looking at getting a new phone. My CA asked what service I have and told me what current phones from them they have gotten to work in the car...
