Need Help With Bluetooth!

My bluetooth was working fine until I did something today and now I cannot connect any phone to it wirelessly. Here is what I think happened:

- While my phone was connected to the car wirelessly via bluetooth, I plugged it into the USB port
- Shortly after plugging it in, I received a message saying that the phone could not be connected by both bluetooth and USB and that the bluetooth connection will be lost
- The phone continues to establish a connection via USB, however will no longer make a wireless connection
- The car displays no signs that bluetooth is inactive or not working properly, and looks like everything is working fine
- The phone still recognizes the car as a device, however when I attempt to select it for pairing (while parked, following all directions), it times out saying that the device is either unavailable or out of reach
- I get the same message when I attempt to pair with one of my friends' i-phones, with no success

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I think I need to somehow reset bluetooth in the car but I don't know how to do that. Thanks again guys!

Yes, I "Removed" all devices and tried pairing afterwards with no luck.

Perhaps you should reboot the car's system. Not sure what the combination of key pressing is. Maybe the same as with the E60? Otherwise remove the fuse and put it back in.
