Hi, it's the same for me, it still doesn't work, I think this maybe an OS problem I have tried contacting RIM but I cannot get hold of anyone, it's really frustrating as my Bold 9780 worked perfectly without any issues at all.
It's really not good as I do a lot of driving and I have to use the headset all the time, my next step is to contact BMW to see if an update is required for my car.

Let me know what you find out on the BMW side. However this looks like a problem with more than just BMW's. Although perhaps everyone needs to update. I don't know. Hopefully RIM will put out a patch.
Hoping RIM may chime in on this discussion on whether they are aware and working on a possible solution?

I am experiencing the same issues with 2011 Cadillac Escalade. Seems like a widespread problem with BB 9900. Hopefully RIM will provide update sooner than later. Other than this issue I love the phone.

I have a 2011 BMW 535xi and my Bold 9700 worked flawlessly when using the bluetooth connection.
I bought a 9900 2 weeks ago and when it connects via bluetooth it frequently drops out and might reconnect a minute later. Most of the times it does not reconnect.
I have replaced it with another 9900 last week and still have the same annoying issues. Any news or updates from RIM?

It's the same for me too! I have a BMW 328 2011 and it looks as though BMW is a top contender with this issue. I have asked the people around my office and it appears we all have same problem. Don't bother contacting RIM as their tech support would like to charge $30 (personal) or $250 (company phone) to even talk to you about your issue but will not return the money if they cannot fix this issue. I'm personally offended! I've contacted Rogers and they said we'll have to wait for the new OS to fix this glitch!!

I have the same problem when pairing my new Bold to my BMW X3 - bluetooth works for a minute or two, then drops the call and freezes the phone. My wife's BB 9780 works fine. It's really irritating - makes me think I should have bought an iphone.
Over to you Blackberry....
