Iphone4s and 328i Bluetooth

When I try to use Siri on the iPhone 4s when connected to car Bluetooth it dials my voicemail. Any ideas for a workaround or a solution other than turning the Bluetooth off?

I have a similar problem. When I use talk to text, it starts dialing numbers.

So, you're connected via bluetooth with the phone and are trying to use voice commands to send a text, and the car dials numbers?

Isn;t this something that shouldn't be a problem if you have BMW apps?

I have a non Nav 328 and no BMW Apps. I use the Y cable when I want to play music from my iPhone.
This occurs when I use my iPhone and bluetooth is connected. I push the home button on iPhone when I want to use SIRI and the car starts to dial my voicemail.

Are you certain it's actually dialing your voicemail?

I also have a non-nav F30 and an iPhone 4S. Whenever I do something on my iPhone that requires voice input, the iDrive display makes it look as if it's dialing my voicemail, but in reality, it's just sitting there waiting for me to start taking. Anything I say gets sent via Bluetooth to Siri. When I close Siri, the iDrive display goes back to normal.

I think the iDrive display just appears as if it's getting a call from my own phone number.

What I would LOVE is if somehow the voice control button on the steering wheel (which currently serves no purpose because I have a non-nav system) could be mapped to activate Siri. That would be great.

Or even if some sort of key combination could be stored as a contact, and dialing it actually activates Siri.

I looked closer and it looks like the it is dialing. It actually isn't. It's just a nuisance.
Siri actually talks over the car speakers.

Probably not the workaround you are looking for, but I just leave an old iPod permanently connected, so that I don't have to plug in my iPhone.....

Thats a good workaround idea. I end up plugging my phone most of the time to charge the battery.
