Office SMS Issue - Help

I've enabled Office (at least the SMS part of Office) on my non-enhanced BT car. It reads sms, however, it will never read the latest one. When I get a new sms it will know and show the little envelope on the screen. But when I open office, it will only show old sms's.

Anyone have this problem? Thanks.

You have to enable it via coding. However, I'm running into the above problem running it basically useless...

I'm having an issue with my SMS where the message comes through correctly and immediately but when I try to use the call back option in the left column it does not work. It will ring twice and then say "the number you have dialed is not in service, etc.". Is anyone else successfully able to call a number back directly from the SMS screen on idrive?

Hmmm, haven't tried that yet. I'll give it a shot tomorrow and let you know if it works.

How do you activate SMS "by coding"?

Thanks!

Are you talking about replying to an SMS through iDrive? I haven't had anything coded on my car and I can recieve/read SMS and email through iDrive with my Galaxy SII. I still have to pull out the phone to send a reply (hope BMW incorporates a voice to text update one day).

I was able to call back to the SMS sender by clicking the call back icon on the left side of the message display. The message was from someone already in my contacts list so I don't know if that made a difference or not, but everything worked as advertised.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for testing this. The call back feature is exactly what I was questioning. It doesn't work for me. It dials some 5 it 6 digit code even though the person is in my contacts. Maybe I need to update my software?

Hi legaleye3000, I am also interested to know how to enable it. I assume you used E-sys etc? It would be great if you could share with us which settings you changed in which module!

I didn't try it before I installed the latest bluetooth update, so it may help get yours working. Only other suggestion after installing the update is to delete and re-pair your phone (I had some issues when I first got the car and re-paring helped). When I deleted the phone from the cars memory, I went into the phone and deleted the car so that I had a fresh start on both.
Hope you get it figured out.
