The data exchange between the Phone and iDrive uses Bluetooth (MAP). You can use the USB connection for charging and other purposes but contacts, mail and texts is via Bluetooth

Are you paired to a bluetooth supported phone?

I have had a chance to test this yet but I suspect that it is not disabled while driving. The Read Out Loud feature will help you keep your eyes on the road while managing messages.
