resuming iphone music when call/phone disconnects

Hi all,

I have a 2007 335xi w/ iDrive that is paired with my iphone4 3GS and using the BMW ipod cable to connect with. My iphone connects fine and transfers contacts and works flawlessly except for one issue that occurs randomly but frequently enough to frustrate me.

I always use voice commands to initiate calls (hit voice command button on steering wheel, “call <name>”, “yes”) as opposed to hiliting the name/# in the idrive menu and I believe this issue (although I haven’t tried all scenarios) only occurs if I’m also listening to music from my iphone itunes (as opposed to the radio or CD). If the person I’m calling hangs up on their end first (as opposed to me disconnecting the call first) the call timer/counter will continue to ascend as displayed in the idrive screen with no sound heard either from itunes or the disconnected phone at the other end.

In order to get itunes music to play again
, I hit the phone steering wheel button which then proceeds to redial the phone# I just ended a call with. I hit the phone steering wheel button again and it stops the call in progress and displays a disconnected message and then the itunes music resumes playing where it left off.

Summary: Is there another way to get itunes music to resume playing after a call is disconnected (from the other party’s end).
Thanks.

excellent question, i would also like to know this... from my experience, when the call ends, if you simply let the call end on its own and dont push the phone button, the music will resume. If you push the call button it pauses the music and i have no idea how to start it again.

This happens on my '08 E92 without iDrive. Mostly when a call comes in and I decline it.

That is the problem ... if the person on the other end hangs up, it is suppose to end the call on my end also and resume the music but it doesn't ... atleast not after upto 16seconds that I have left it 'counting' ... Maybe if I continue to wait it will eventually switch to the music but how long do I need to wait and regardless, it should be almost instantaneous (within a few seconds).

My iPhone 4 connected through BT does not have this problem. Though I have yet to resolve how to get it to transfer the phone book to the stereo's phone book to make voice dialing through my steering wheel button possible. Anyone know how to to do this?

Actually...is BT standard on 2011 e92s? I had no idea my car could even do it, and the integration is absolutely flawless aside from the phone book think...but it keeps a record of last calls and frequent numbers in the HU, so that works for me.

Isn't the OP's question more a function of telephony rather than bluetooth, BMW, or iPhone? When the other party disconnects, I would say if you want your side to disconnect immediately, simply press end. I don't have an iPhone, but when I listen to FM or iPod, or any other music input, the same thing happens because my side has not dropped the call yet.
