Radio/CD wont play.... Shows "PHONE"

Hi All,
I am driving BMW 323i 1999. MY car audio was working fine. Recently i just turn on my radio and the display start showing PHONE... No matter what i do it stays there and now i am unable to listen to any audio from my car. I took to BMW people and they told me the whole radio is going to be replaced. Some one told me unplug the battery for 10 min and then try. Anyone have any advice on this because radio is $1100.00
I will really appreciate any comment on that

Regards

Hassan

Take it to an independant car audio specialist. Have you tried the battery method.
