I am asking on behalf of a friend that has moved into the area, and he cannot get service with his BMW phone that came with the vehicle.
He has been told it is analog, and when he went to the beamer dealership, he was told that it would cost him $1,500 to get it swapped over to a digital phone.
What is the deal with this? Is it the phone itself, or is the "in-car phone system" not compatable with any newer BMW phones; thus requiring the "in car equipment" to be upgraded?
I see that the phones themselves can be found on Ebay, but I am not sure if it is just the phone, or if it is the entire system.
