I've just purchased an Windows 8X HTC phone (11/24/2012)
The phone would not connect via Bluetooth, so I have had BMW Service department update my car's Software/firmware (2006 325i)
An the phone still behaves the same way So, called Verizon, who put me in touch with HTC Service/Tech help, and it is all boiling down to HTC releasing an Windows 8 phone bluetooth stack update, so that the PUSH functions work correctly with the car.
If your Windows 8X HTC phone doesn't connect with your BMW, Please contact HTC an submit a trouble ticket with them. The more input they get, the faster we will have a solution!

My phone, when I got it back in November, synced perfectly with my 2013 Audi. Then when I downloaded a new update to the firmware for the phone in February, it doesn't. It won't sync with a new BMW either (I tried.)
I can't believe other people aren't having this problem as well. Is it just us?
Hands free is really important to me. Everything else about the phone is great, but this is a complete deal breaker. I could never recommend this phone to anyone with this sort of a problem.
