Same here. Really nice having text message alerts now.

Bluetooth is working fine in our 2011 Flex and my 2009 MKS. USB works just like my 4 did with my MKS. Haven't tried it in the Flex yet. Haven't tried anything with texting yet.

Updated MFT Gen 2 to 3.2.2 on 2011 Explorer, but IP4 w/iOS6 doesn't work with text messaging. IP5 due tomorrow so I will try then.

BTW, on MFT there is no Systems->Advanced->MAP for BT as others have mentioned. When I check the Info setting for my iPhone, here's the info:

Profiles: PBAP SMS 3WayCall
Version: 6.0
Carrier: AT&T

Also when connected on the iPhone 4 under Settings->Bluetooth->Sync, the only setting available is Sync Contacts.... nothing for Show Notification. Unless the 4s or IP5 does something different, its not working for me.

Ok, here are the steps I took:

Since my 5 was a new phone, I didn't need to delete it from the car bluetooth. However, if you're still using a 4S, delete it after you've updated to iOS6.

Once added, go to Phone Menu -> Text Messages and make sure notifications are turned on.

Next, go to System Services -> Advanced -> MAP Profile. Make sure when selected it says Off? As that's actually on.

Finally, go into your phone's settings -> Bluetooth and press the small blue icon on the right and turn on "Show notifications".

You will now have it working for incoming texts. You can send yourself one, it'll pop up on the screen and just press the "Siri" button on the steering wheel and say "Text message". It'll say the text, but not who it's from.

Haven't figured out how to get sending to work though.

He has a Sync V1 system. They seem to be working to some degree. Owners of cars with MFT such as us are not as lucky.

Ford Fiesta 2012 with Sync only. Was working on my 4S. Now the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 doesn't. Doesn't work via Bluetooth or the Lightening USB cable. Bummed.

I just spent 45 minutes updating the Sync software in my 2012 Ford focus Ti to version 3.2.2. After pairing my iPhone 5 with Sync, I can report the bluetooth is working just the same as it did with the previous system with my former iPhone 4s running 5.1.x. Texting through Bluetooth is still a no go.

As an aside, in just 30 minutes of driving with Sync 3.2.2, I have encountered the following:

(a) response to voice commands is much quicker
(b) the MFT system seemed to index my iPod far quicker than in the past (< 3 minutes)
(c) 3.2.2 broke the climate display on the MFT 8" display. The display no longer matches the actual state of the climate control system
(d) The shuffle button seems to work when listening to my iPod
(e) It still incorrectly displays track information/album art

I know this isn't a Ford forum, but I thought I'd warn those of you considering the upgrade. You'll be trading one set of bugs for another.

Turns out all I had to do was delete my old phone from my 08 edge, which gets rid of primary allowing media stream to pick back up automatically when starting the car.

I haven't had any issues so far on my 2011 Mustang. I have the Gen 1 version of sync. Bluetooth stream works great and USB works as well.

2011 F150 Raptor... I can't report any problems using the iPhone 5 via Bluetooth. I have heard that the call quality, via Bluetooth, is different (neither better nor worse) compared to my previous Thunderbolt.

Angry Brand New Ford and I Phone 5 wont work

I purchased a Brand New Ford Escape in August and I have had numerous problems with the SYNC system, I had an I Phone 4 and now I have an I Phone 5. All Ford want to do is make excuses and not help me, they blame Apple for all of the problems, radio not working/phone freezing/switching itself off/phone going on mute/no bluetooth/no turn by turn navigation, I could go on. Customer Service has been so AWFUL! The car had no disclamier.....saying if you have an APPLE I PHONE DO NOT BUY! What can I do.......

I have a 2013 Ford Escape also. I just updated my iphone 5 to 6.1, rebooted my My Ford Touch and deleted the initial pairing from my phone and MFT and repaired them, and turned on show notifications on my phone at Settings>Bluetooth>Sync my texts have started coming though. I have never had a problem with the iPhone 5 or 4s syncing to the MFT.

Yeah I just updated MFT to v3.5.1 and after deleting SYNC bluetooth from my IP5 and doing a reboot, the Show Notifications on the IP5 BT settings finally appeared. Receiving texts works, but that's it. Ford really needs to find a resolution.

Sync = Microsoft
iPhone = Apple

Did you expect them to get along like best friends?

Need a little help...

I just bought a 2010 Ford Escape. I have an iPhone 4 and was able to pair it with Sync and make and receive phone calls. However, when I try to play my music over bluetooth, it says "no bluetooth device detected." In my bluetooth settings, bluetooth is on and "Sync" is connected. In the Music app, I have "Sync" selected. Again, I have no problem making phone calls, but once I go to Bluetooth Audio, it won't work. Ford is telling me there is something in my settings I need to change to allow it access, but can't tell me which setting and told me to call Apple.

I also tried going to Settings > Privacy > Bluetooth Sharing and there is nothing there. One of the guys from Ford told me that might be the setting I need to fix, but there are no options.

I'm sorry if this has already been posted somewhere, but I searched and could not even find anyone having the same problem, let alone an answer.
