Delete Phonebook

Post by Dale E. Rich » Tue May 21, 2019 8:53 pm

I have a 2005 Z4 E85 and have paired my phone, which promptly downloaded all my contacts and their phone numbers into the car. Yikes, I know a lot of people. But I Only call very few.

Is there a way I can delete the contacts? Will unpairing my phone make them disappear?

Can anyone help?

I think it downloads your phone book each time it connects

It has disappeared. Apparently setting the phone to NOT share contacts was all that was required. After a few connections with no contact sharing, it was removed.
