Hi, everyone -

Early testing showed the same performance as previous iOS firmware levels for both SYNC Gen2 v3.6.2 and SYNC Gen1 v4.2.1.

Now that the official iOS7 software has been released, engineering will be re-verifying compatibility across all of the following iPhone models against the latest SYNC versions:

• iPhone 4
• iPhone 4s
• iPhone 5
• iPhone 5c and 5s

I've passed along your feedback and will continue to do so, please keep it coming.

If you're having an issue with pairing your phone, I recommend removing the previous SYNC pairing from your phone's Bluetooth menu, deleting it from the system and trying it again. Also, ensure you're running the latest software by checking your www.Support.Ford.com account for an available SYNC update.

Jaclyn

Works as good as it did before with 3.2.2. Just lamenting that there never updates for us 2010, 2011 owners. Some of the features like text messages work in 2012+.

Someone did an a teardown between 2011 and 2012 sync ARM hardware with MS embedded O/S saw that they are basically the same but 2012 comes with newer software not available to 2011.

Gen1 v4.2.1? My 2012 is running Gen1 v4.1.3, and the website shows no update available. How can I update? Sure would be great to have texting working with the iPhone.

iPhone 5s. Doesn't read texts, doesn't notify about texts, in fact, does nothing with texts at all.

Phone calling and Bluetooth streaming work fine.

Just upgraded to ios7 on my iphone 5. Before the update i would get text messages. I have tried everything, but can't get text messages anymore. Before the update it took me forever to get it to work. I'll keep trying. Makes me wish I didn't upgrade.

However, Follow these steps exactly (props to @jgohlke for writing all this out).

The sequence seems to have a large part of it working or not.

1) Truck - Delete phone from BT device list.
2) Phone - Delete Sync from BT connection list.
3) Phone - Reboot. (Do steps 4 & 5 while you wait for this to finish)
4) Truck - Turn off, pull the key, open the door.
5) Truck - Close the door, restart.
6) Truck/Phone - Pair your phone fresh w/MFT. Let it finish.
7) Phone - Turn BT off.
8) Phone - Turn BT on.
9) Truck - Hit "connect" on the MFT screen to reconnect BT.
10) Phone - Go into the BT Profile Settings screen for Sync (little arrow to the right of Sync, in Settings, Bluetooth)
11) Phone - Set Notifications to "On".
12) Phone - Back up a screen and turn BT off again.
13) Phone - Turn BT back on.
14) Truck - Hit "connect" on the MFT screen again to reconnect to phone.


I did exactly this to my phone/truck when I was trying to fix my text messaging issues. I haven't had a problem with it since.

I'm not sure which carrier you have , but I don't see any iPhones on the comparability list that support SMS through sync.

Under the Sync connection on your iPhone bluetooth settings, make sure notifications are turned on.
