iPhone question eh =/ [iPhone 2.0 & iDrive problem]

I recently upgraded my 1st gen iphone to the new 2.0 software and when I pair it with my car it doesn't download my contacts. I have tried the codes 0000 and 1234 but still no luck. Anyone know what I can do?

-Thanks

As T-Town M5 mentioned, I've been complaining about iPhone 2.0 software stopping the address book sync'ing for some time now (I love how high migh site appears in a Google search for "BMW iPhone" ).

It appears most 2008 BMW's not affected, a handful of older cars with software updates also in the clear but not all.

Not limited to BMW either, there's a large number of Chrysler owners who have something called uConnect (?) that it no longer works with, along with Mercedes, Jeep, Land Rover, and more.

Apple very much aware of this issue and I'm expecting a fix off them in the coming weeks. In the meantime you'll have to try and get by without voice-dial or contacts on the iDrive.

I tried downgrading to 1.1.4 but it all went disasterously wrong and I had an iBrick for a few hours. I've seen realised where I went wrong (I force flashed iPod touch firmware onto an iPhone...oops) so I'm tempted to try downgrading again until 2.01 released.

Same here. Echo, but no problems with contacts. All appear, last name first. If they could just fix this echo problem, though...

UPDATE - Apple have just released iPhone 2.01 update. No mention yet on what has changed with this version but finger's crossed its going to sort out the problems many have been having with iPhone 2.0 and iDrive.

It's a 240MB download which could take a while as Apple's servers get hammered, then you'll have to wait an eternity for you phone to do a complete backup prior to updating.

I'm half way through the backing up stage, soon as that's done I'm heading out to the car to see if everything's back to normal.

Don't get too excited, iPhone 2.01 still doesn't sync contacts with my iDrive.
