Iphone 5 Pairing Problems

Anyone here have the iphone 5 and able to blue tooth pair? I keep getting a pairing failed sign. Do I need a software update? I can't find anywhere that has an update for me to put on a thumb drive. I have a 2012 550i thats not even a month old. Appreciate any help.

I have been reading a lot of bluetooth issue claims online for all different things.

I was able to get it to work after several tries. Good to go!

I didn't have any problems pairing my iPhone 5 with my 2011 535i. But I have an older NAV system than what you have.

If you have problems, try deleting the old devices out of the pairing list on your car if possible.

I was clicking to the right after entering in 0000 instead of clicking OK. Stupid error on my part. On another note the iphone 5 bluetooth in general is not as good as previous iphones. I have been following several forums online regarding range issues. I have two bluetooth headsets I used with great distance with older iphone and had no problem. New iphone I start getting serious static after 10 ft. Thats for two different models. I hope it can be fixed!

No problems with pairing the phone!!

It's a hassle that it doesn't make any noise when it locks and I get messages!!
