Brand new to the forum, glad to be here. I just bought a new 08 Fx2. There is a phone button on the stock stereo, does anyone know what this button is for? When I press it says "No phone". Thanks for any input here.
Check out your owners manual. You may have a "bluetooth" radio, meaning you can sync your bluetooth capable phone to your radio, then make/recieve calls through the radio.
On my Ford radio, it is mearly a mute function; kills audio on the radio when I press it, so that I could answer a phone call (?). I use it when I'm in a drive through at the local burger joint; I can then hear what the squak box voice is saying. My display does not show the words "no phone" however. I also have the am/fm/6 disc/MP3 player with audiophile. I thought this was the top of the line radio from Ford; sounds like you have one better if it sync's to a bluetooth capable phone.
Give an answer, they learn for the day; suggest a search, they learn for a lifetime.
I have a 2008 Super crew XLT with the 6 CD changer/MP3 Audiophile stereo. It also has the "phone" button. As the OP says, the manual just says that when you press the button the display will say "no phone" (thanks for telling me Ford!). I assume that the radio is designed for more than the F150 and that in some vehicles the phone button does something, but for us it is just to remind us that the truck doesn't have a built-in phone ;-)

If it's bluetooth ready you need to go through a discovery process. There should be an opion on your phone where it will discover any local (within 30') bluetooth devices. If it is BT ready your phone will discover it.
For those of you that have an overhead console, here's a site that advertises a unit that you add to your stock wiring harness for the overhead unit. It states it links up to most bluetooth phones. Check it out:
