I have a 5er so I cannot guarantee my answer for your upcoming awesome 650i
You cannot reliably build up the address book in the BMW. I once managed to get the contacts of a Treo 650 in the BMW, it lasted for two weeks up to the moment I tried again, I was never able of repeating it.
But, wxoforecasters tells us that you can send the phonebook to the car. I would really like to understand how that works?
Back to the BMW
Once connected you can do everything the Bluetooth function is able of except for the phonebook transfer. Dialing from the car works with the controller and voice commands. Picking up a call with the controller/steer buttons work. Speed dialing from the BB and the car takes over.....
And the battery of my BB remains well during bluetooth operation in the car.
Have fun with your 650i !!
