I can set up the iPhone 4s with phone, data (and audio) with the car through Bluetooth, no problem.

I've had very limited success getting either the internet browser or BMW live to work properly. It seems as if the idrive is unable to start a data connection through the iPhone 4s. (You know if it has successful established a connection as the iPhone will display how many hotspot connections are active)

Has anyone else ran into this issue with a AT&T iphone 4s and iOS5? I'm not sure if I have a issue with my phone or iOS5 or not.

BMW apps, bluetooth phone / audio streaming, pandora all work perfectly.

Alas, I don't have another phone with tethering to try with the car.

You need to use the BMW Y cable or the white Apple USB cable.....
