Don't know if this will help, but are you trying to sync the car to the phone or the phone to the car?
If you're trying to have the car find the phone, then turn your phone on and find Bluetooth on your 'connection' selections. Then have the phone 'pair' to the car.
My Nokia 6230 worked in seconds this way....
Good luck.

It is compatible

I have a 2004 330i model with the bluetooth option installed. They had to deactivate the BMW Assist to install the bluetooth antenna, but I don't care because I was not going to use that option anyway (it came as part of the premium package and I was not planning of renewing the contract after the first year).

I use the Motorola RZOR V3 from Cingular with my car and it works fine. I had issues pairing the first time too, but I think it has to do with the explanation. Do a search for devices _from_ the phone, i.e., Settings->Connection->Bluetooth Link->Handsfree->[Look For Devices]. It should find the car and show something like "BMW nnnnn". Enter the pin as specified in your card and it should get paired.

Every time you turn the car on, the address book from the phone will be downloaded to the car. Very cool...

The two issues I have are:

1) There is no cradle (that I know of) for this phone, so the batteries can run out pretty quickly (I have to recharge every night, as opposed to 1-2/week without the use of bluetooth). I guess you could use a car charger, but I would rather have a cradle for the phone with a charger.

2) The recorded voice names are not downloaded from the phone. You must do them in the car again (i.e., every time you pair) if you want them. However, you can use the voice recognition system to dial a phone number. It works pretty well, if you remember the number. :-) Otherwise, you must do a search for the person you want using the up/down arrows in the steering wheel (not too bad after you get used to it).

I hope this information helps. I love this option in the car. I recommend it to every person who asks. It makes life a lot simpler and safer when you want to make or receive a call in car. I usually have the phone in my pocket or a bag in the trunk. I don't even bother to know where my phone is anymore. I just know that if I want to make/receive a call, I just need to press a couple of buttons in the steering wheel and talk.
