Connecting 2 phones via bluetooth at the same time on my new 5

Im yet to figure out the complexities of the idrive system, and am having trouble connecting two phones at the same time. I can see that both are paired and I can swap the "connected" one around, but does anyone know how I can have both phones connected at the same time, ie the car will answer an incoming call from either phone with no interaction by me save for pressing the button on the steering wheel? (For reference its an F10)

Have one phone connected then highlight the other phone and press the options button, in the new menu select the configure button and select additional phone.

Both phone will show up, with the additional one having an 'incoming arrow' on it to show the calls will route via bluetooth.

This is assuming you have the new F10.
