Onstar bluetooth update letter

Anyone do the bluetooth update via Onstar?
Received a letter stating that you can get a free 30 day account activation for the update from Onstar if you dont have service with them. Letter lists some phones that have had problems staying connected. Mine is in the list (Iphone) but I have not had any issues so not sure about updating something that seems to work fine.

How do you run the update? Does it prompt you when you're in your Camaro?

It would be cool if there was a way to tell if you have this update or not. If I already have OnStar, how can I check to see if I need this update?

Yea it would be good to know if the 2012 had already had the update. I am not sure if a dealer can scan to see if you have the update or not?

For me, I was driving one day and an automated message came on saying "There is an important Onstar update for your account. Please press the blue Onstar button now."

When I pressed the button, I told the lady that answered what happened and she sent the update.

What year do you have? I have a 2012 and have yet to get anything about updates.

I have an '11. But this update is VERY recent, like 2-3 weeks old. I would be surprised if any '12s came from the factory with the update.

I pushed the button today and asked about the update (did not receive a letter). They activated my account and sent the update.

I called on Saturday and asked about any possible updates. I was told my system has the most up to date software and no update is available.
