Sprint Instinct/Garmin 2820 Bluetooth

It's late, and i give up looking. Somehow I just don't get it! Why does'nt my Garmin 2820 with Bluetooth see that I have a headset and mic in my helmet? I have a Samsung Instinct phone and I figured out how to pair it up... The Garmin sees a phone call coming in, but tells me that I need to hook up a headset or mic. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to actually connect something (audio cable?) to the phone? Do I have the wrong selection set on the intercom?
I have a 2008 model with the BMW intercom system connected to our helmets.

I am hoping its just something stupid that I don't get! (yet)

thanks again for the assistance guys...
going to bed now- its late and tired here.
