SOS System Malfunction

I have a 2008 e92 335i without iDrive. I'm getting the SOS call system malfunction showing code 299. I've searched around with every related keyword I can think of and while it's easy to find others with the same error, I can't find any previous posts with the same symptoms and/or any fix. The main difference is that I still have Bluetooth fully functional - only the SOS system is dead. Other posts seem to always have bluetooth or all audio dead as well.

Took it to the dealer - dead end since it's not covered by the CPO warranty. They wanted to just start replacing parts and I didn't want to pull a second mortgage for something like this.

I cleared out the BMW assist settings, deleted the paired phone (iPhone 5 if it matters), disconnected the battery, and tried to re-setup the BMW assist. It goes to 50% and hangs with a data error message.

I'm wondering if the shark fin antenna is dead or something since bluetooth still works. If I switch it to satellite radio (expired) it just shows to call a number and doesn't play the advertisement stream I get with my truck (satellite also expired). Not sure if that's relevant or not.

I would really appreciate any help or input on this. Thanks in advance!!
