Question Adding cell phone to hands free e39?

I've searched the forum, but can't seem to find info for adding a cell phone to my '98 540. It came with a pre-wired "brick" phone with the hands free setup. Is there any way to adapt the wiring for a newer cell phone? I know that I can use a bluetooth adapter, but that's a bit pricey ($600+). Can anybody point me in the right direction? Thanks.

The system on BMW Bluetooth Retrofit Information looks like the best option. Voice control of phone and voice control of nav

After market option can get you Bluetooth for much less (~$300) that OEM with better capability to new BT phones. The best cost effective solution is to install Parrot 3000 evolution kit with Steering wheel bottoms and Audio integration.
Take a look at Parrot at tigerdirect.com – they on special
at Connects2Auto,Car Audio integration specialists - Steering adapters for the adapter.

I did this setup in my E39 M5 and love it. Works great.
