phone not showing up on the car BT

ok so my phone is connected to the car BT but is not showing up on the car list so I can not use the steering wheel phone functions. I can not delete my phone from the car and I've tried pretty much everything I could.

I know why it happened as I read about this on another forum, Connecting a phone with an emoji in the title. The friend is no longer around so can not ask her to fix it.

Is there a way I can reset the Idrive ecu, I have the bimmercode but I wouldn't know where to start.

This thing is annoying the hell out of me!

Apple or Android phone?

If Android...I think you can change the phones' name by pressing and holding on one of the configuration page prompts (on the phone). Once you have removed the emoji in the phones name...then try paring it to the car again.

I'm lost.

If you no longer have the phone in your possession...or if the phone is not present in the car...then even though it's been paired to your car...it won't work. The phone has to be in the car (or really close to it) for it to work.

If you want to remove the phone...have you tried the instructions below from the CIC/NBT booklet (its a separate manual from the owners manual)?

yes I have tried that, but as I mentioned my phone is not appearing in the phone BT list but it is connected to the car and I can take calls through the car and disconnect.

I think I need to reset the BT system some how?
