I am a newbie, but have a cell phone related question

and yes I know you guys have discussed this alot..lol...but im new and the terminology is not even making sense.

Ok so, got a 2005 E500. Open up the middle console and there is an area where a phone (not mine sadly) should fit, and a mini usb like male ready to insert into phone. there is a button that i swear has the bluetooth symbol on it...ok pressed it...turned phone to bluetooth...screen said it was searching for phone..then says turn phone on...ugggg....the steering wheel has the phone icon as well....

I have an android phone and about to upgrade to another...

I know what may seem very complicated to me, may seem as easy as counting to 3 to some..but again...new to this...so be nice lol.

so what exactly do i need?

also how do i get the satellite radio working? Sirrius website says to turn to channel 183 but when i hit the satellite button it just says no satellite....

yeah im this challenged...the dealer isn't an exclusive Mercedes dealer and hence knows nothing.

Regarding the satellite radio, do you currently have a subscription? It's a service provided by subscription only so if the old account has expired and wasn't renewed, or if you didn't activate, it simply won't function.
