GMC IntelliLink Smartphone

I connected my Android phone (Samsung Galaxy 6) to my 2017 Sierra 1500 SLT without issues when I got the truck. Contacts sync'ed and other Bluetooth functions worked fine. A couple months ago, I factory-reset my phone. I deleted the phone on the truck's display an re-paired Bluetooth. Speakerphone and Bluetooth audio work fine but I noticed soon after that it would no longer let me use voice prompts to dial outbound calls via contact names. Turns out, the contacts won't sync.
This worked fine before with the same truck and phone. The only thing that's changed is the phone is now encrypted and has separate personal and work profiles. That's the reason for resetting the phone - I connected it to my work account so it's now showing separate calendars, gmail, contacts, etc.
I've re-paired the Bluetooth multiple times. I've waited hours between deleting and reconnected a couple times. Every time I get the prompts on the phone allowing it to access contacts and such and approve them every time. I'm still not able to get my contacts from the phone. Curiously, I do get one contact that's me with my name and phone number but nothing else in it. I tried connecting my wife's phone to the truck and can't get her contacts either. Seems like something's confused in the truck's computer.
Dying for a fix here...
2000 miles out of warranty my vcim suspiciously shorts out about 2 weeks after being at the dealer to fix an antenna issue (mouse chewed thru it). I am told it will be $1200 to repair/replace the vcim. What are my alternatives if I don't care if I have Onstar but still want navigation and bluetooth capabilities? 2016 Chev Silverado LTZ. 38000 miles
Has anyone tried this yet?
I set up an appointment Friday to have the firmware in my stereo updated and will be ordering the 2.5 HMI module tonight to see if this actually works.
I have a 2016 Silverado 1500 crew cab with the I05 radio. Took it to the dealer for pairing issues and they replaced the HMI and updated firmware support from 3B020 to 4B012. This solved the pairing issue that I was experiencing of having to repair the device every time I entered the vehicle. Now I found that if I am on a call when entering the vehicle The call will go muted and I have to hang up and recall instead of the call transferring in the truck. (Even though it use to before the update.) Took it back to the dealer they seem to think after talking to the GMC engineer it is a software issue in the update that has disabled it. They have the same truck on the lot with an I05 radio. They made sure the phone would transfer the call getting into the vehicle with no issues. Then they applied the updated software and same thing happened the calls will no longer transfer to the vehicle. Anyone know of a fix for this or a way to roll back the software as they say they are unable to load previous versions.
ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!
Hello everyone, I’m new to the forum. I want to add Bluetooth to my 2008 Chevy Avalanche ltz. My Avy has OnStar and factory navigation, rear entertainment, and xm radio. I want to add Bluetooth by swapping out my existing OnStar VCIM with one that has Bluetooth. Can anyone tell me if this is doable and if it will work. Please advise. Thank You.
