SOS Call System Failure

Has anyone gotten this message before? It completely takes over my iDrive and won't let me do anything unless I push the button and after a few minutes it'll fail, then it'll let me use iDrive.

Thanks!

It might be a problem with the TCU-Telematics Control Unit that uses a SIM card to send a SOS call with the position of the car in the case of accident or when we push the SOS button.
If you have Connected Drive services you can check if it gets the position properly and, if so, the problem is probably on the SIM card or the TCU that is not connecting.
