Do you mean read received text messages aloud? Or respond with the SYNC default replies (like "Thank you" and "I love you")? Or do you mean you can't connect via BT at all?

The Sync systems says my phone doesn't support the bluetooth text messaging when I try to connect the to. I did a quick search on google and people seem to be saying something about not having MAP (Message Acces Profile) on the iphones.

I am able to get my voice calls through the system and get my call history and recent calls to all upload the minute in sit down in my truck.

Any suggestions on how to get my iPhone and Synce to play nice?

There is a Sync webpage that indicates which phones are text message compatible, but there are almost no smart phones on that list (e.g. iPhone and Android).

Most are Motorola phones with a smattering of Nokia and Samsung phones...

Yeah I checked that out as well! A bunch of old phones were on the list!

I just thought with all the smart people in the forum that someone had found a "Backdoor" to making this work!

It has to do with the SMS messaging protocol over BT. Sync use BlueTooths' Message Access Profile specification which Apple's iPhone does not support at this time.

The only hope is to send an enhancement request to Apple. There is an ongoing discussion thread on Apple's forums about this: Text Messaging - iPhone Integration with Ford Sync

That is too funny! I just got done reading this thread. So it sounds like this feature is useless until Apple makes a move on there end! Thank you

That feature does work with my Motorola Droid Razr. I tried it for a awhile but after a few friends said some bad words I didn't like the kids hearing the text! Kind of funny. I don't have it on now. You have to delete each individual text from the truck. Even if you delete it using your phone, it doesn't synch up and simultaneously delete it from the truck.
