I've been told by Verizon that the BMW V60s phone has a special chip in it that allows it to talk properly to the car's computer system. I've heard from people that do not have the BMW phone that they have to insert the phone into the cradle every time they start the car in order to have the names/address book download and display on the idrive screen.

The BMW parts people told me the BMW phone is the same phone as the Verizon, but the Verizon people said it needs this special chip, and they've replaced a couple phones that didn't have the chip.

Anyone have the straight scoop on this? Is there a BMW programmed chip in the BMW phone??

Day four and the phone is running w/o any issues.

As this is my Wife's primary car and now primary phone - she does unplug the phone when she parks the car and plugs it in.

If you read the BMW manual all the features that work with the BMW phone are working fine for us with the V60s. Though once I had a no network message and then a minutes later it was fine.

Yes ver 12 is out and that is what they loaded on the I-Drive

Am on the phone with Sterling BMW right now and they are quoting 3 hrs labor plus $130.00 for case & $23.00 for frames.

The service advisor couldn't answer if they have v12 software and that the v60 would work.

I have even called each BMW dealer in San Diego and no one has actually performed this. Each quote for labor ranges from 3-5 hrs.

Any help, maybe the service advisors name that I could ask for.
