In the Astra J until the facelift the Bluetooth module was optional. Most original buyers did not spec this option. So the menu is there, but will always tell you no phone is available.

Thanks for the reply....On the Menu it dosent mention a phone/bluetooth at all...It as vehicle settings and a couple of others!!! But it as the bluetooth button on the steering wheel and the phone button on the radio/dashboard!!!

Yeah it is a bit confusing. I had a 2010 J with steering wheel buttons, the radio button and even a settings menu as well, but after opening the dash I found out there was no Bluetooth module. If present it is mounted behind the climate control buttons, just above the cubby hole.
It is not that if buttons are present you have the module, quite strange. One early models a retrofit is easily possible, but quite soon after it required coding by vauxhall.

I had a 2008 Zafira that i retrofitted a bluetooth module into, even then, the module needed coding.

Not necessarily by vauxhall, but you did need to marry up the bluetooth module to the radio and display, and do a few settings. Also the radio and the display needed to know that a bluetooth module was present.

I can not give a definitive answer but you probably dont have the BC function enabled. (Board Computer)

Vauxhall has this stupid idea that some software-only items should not be enabled on all models and specs.

On my Zafira B, it was not enabled, and i had to change an index code for it to show. Probably not as easy on the Astra J though.

Can you take a picture of your bcm, that will help telling what is possible and what not.

A picture of your instrument cluster that would be.
