DROID phonebook not uploading to iDrive

I have had my DROID Verizon Wireless phone for several months, and it has always worked perfectly with my 07 E90, but just acquired a 09 X5 (same version of iDrive) and the phonebook will not load.

Has anyone experience this problem, and found a solution or cause?

The only thing I haven't done in the past couple of days is re-verify that it is still working properly in the E90 - since my Android software was recently updated to 2.2.

However, when I paired my wife's phone (an older Razor phone) I didn't see it pull in the phonebook for that either.

Any suggestions appreciated.

You may want to try in the X5 forum... I have the Droid X and havent had any problems.

Yeah, I'll post in the X5 forum also - but figured as a technical phone pairing issue this might be a good place to start. Seems odd to me that it works perfectly in the E90 but not the newer X5. But, that's BMW for you....

Problem solved.

Actually, there was another step required from the phone side of the pairing process that was not so evident. Once I un-paired and re-paired and included the step of telling the phone it was okay to trasfer the information (with "always" selected) - voila!

Hopefully this will help someone else that might have this dilema with a DROID phone.
