Does any 1 know why my samsung galaxy s3 will not show my contacts on the idrive?
It pairs ok but no contacts show. You can make calls but need to go to phone book on the phone as it wont show in address book on idrive.

Hi, are your contacts stored in phone or sim card ?try moving them.
Also make sure no smileys etc stored as characters in phone book .
If all else fails try compatibility of phone on bmw.co.uk
Hope this helps........

I have about 300 contacts on my SGS3 which sync with & show up on the iDrive. They're all Google contacts & the only problem I've had is that contacts stored only as a business name (in the appropriate Google field) only show up as a phone number so I save than as a surname. When I activated "office" on the iDrive I found that text messages also show up in messages, although the end of long ones gets dumped.
