If you did not get enhanced BT to connect wirelessly, you can still use a USB cable and play audio files stored on the phone as you would from a flash drive.
But, it's probably cheaper & easier just to buy a chaep 16-32GB thumb drive and always leave it connected.
With enhance BT you can see messages, etc. in the idrive from BT.
