Do you have the comms pack option installed ? If you have a telephone built in to the centre armrest you have hands free already, but unless somebody has retro fitted bluetooth, you wont have bluetooth.

The comms pack is the phone and handsfree, you should have a button on the steering wheel with a phone symbol on it, when you get a phone thats for your model and get it plugged in you will have handsfree.I think you can check which phone it is here: RealOEM.com Online BMW Parts Catalog or look in your owners manual.

Yep, so you have comms pack all you need is the phone and your away, what phone it is Im not sure, the dealer should be able to tell you.

Here are the phones fitted to you model: RealOEM.com * Diagram Selection

If you enter your car VIN # it may narrow the phone model down.

Not sure on does it have to be BMW I presume any of the the models listed, but you still have to identify which model of phone.

As for how does your mobile cell connect? well this will become your mobile cell just put your SIM card in or if you want to keep your mobile use.........call divert to the car phone and vice-versa

Based on the buttons I see in your car, I don't think you have bluetooth.

I have bluetooth in my E38. You don't have the same buttons I do. Therefore, I don't think you have bluetooth.

You have to have the phone for your car, before you can do anything at all, thats what ive been trying to tell you and from the pics you also have voice activation, if you didnt know.
