I have three Ford vehicles with the Sync system factory installed, a 2010 Expedition Limited, 2012 Explorer Limited (wife's car) and my new 2013 F150 Platinum.
When I registered for Sync services for the 2013, the following message was emailed to me.

The mobile phone number 302-245-69xx has been made Active in another SYNC account, and therefore is no longer the Active mobile phone number for your SYNC account. You will not be able to access SYNC Services or Vehicle Health Report with this mobile phone number during the time it is Active in another account.
Please log in to your account account at SYNC Technology | SYNC Support | Ford.com,
and add or select another mobile phone number as Active in your SYNC account. Please make certain that call blocker is turned OFF on this phone in order to access SYNC Services or Vehicle Health Report.

We use my wife's cell for her car and I thought I could use my cell for the 2010 and 2013.
What is the reason Ford limit's the cell no. use? Does this mean I have to have ANOTHER cell no. to register for my 2010?
On my SYNC account, I can see "add a vehicle" next to my Taurus, and further down the page on the right-hand side, "Mobile used with SYNC: "
So it looks like you could have one account, two vehicles, and the same mobile.

No Art, if you try to add another vehicle, it will reset the first one according to the email I got, and it does remove it from the first vehicle.
You can only have ONE sync tied to ONE mobile no. ONE mobile no. to TWO Sync accounts is a no go.
Apparently each vehicle is require to have its own registered sync account.
It would be better to have the sync account tied to the OWNER who should then be able to have multiple vehicles under ONE sync account. Now I have 3, 1 for wife which is active, 1 for 2013 F150 which is active, and no active moble for the 2010 Expedition which the 2013 F150 replaced in Fords eyes.
