However, I think that the RAZR operating system has been updated to the point that it no longer supports the old messaging capability. Have you tried to speak to someone at the Ford Customer Service hotline? Since iPhone has never met the messaging access protocol MAP standards set by Microsoft for the Sync system especially on Sync models such as the basic systems.. My phone is an iPhone 5s, with the 8. The phone is paired to the car, and the car easily receives the text alert, and the read back is good. But every time I try to reply, I get a failure message.
Does anyone have a solution that does not entail Siri I just want to use the canned sync replies? I would consider yourself lucky to actually get the system to read you back texts. The Sync system allows the text messaging with most Android smartphones… Otherwise, pushing the Home button on the front lower screen of the Apple phone iPhone 4S and newer will summon Siri.
With SYNC 3, you can receive important messages from your iPhone while driving. SYNC voice commands allow you to have your text message read aloud to. You see, the Ford Sync system cannot access the text messages in your .. I couldn't get my my ford touch to read texts from my new iPhone 6.
I appreciate the time you took to respond. I will play with the Siri option and see how that goes. So Sync will still receive, display if not moving and read-back the incoming message, and using Siri via the iPhone will allow me to send a message, and Siri does come through the car stereo with no problem, and appears to be using the Sync microphone, but I only assume that because I do not know how sensitive the iPhone microphone is….
On another issue, Vince: Is it possible to remove the speed restrictions? I hate this Nanny attitude that prevents an address from being input into the navigation system, even though there is a passenger sitting on the seat and the car knows this based upon the airbag light. And since the passenger is Japanese, her accent makes talking to Sync an impossibility, and she is unable to input an address that she received via text on her phone. I followed your instructions and now it works perfectly! Sync is very hard to work… so far not crazy about it.
I have a Ford fusion sport.
Customer Viewpoint Ratings and Reviews
My current phone does not support the text message feature. I am looking to get a new phone and am trying to figure out which one would be best. I am looking at the new HTC or new Galaxy. Any other phone suggestions that? And will the new phones still be supported by my sync version? I have a Ford Escape and an iPhone 5s. What am I doing wrong, how can I fix this? I need a little more to go on here… What kind of Sync system do you have?
How are you listening to your text messages? How what process do you use to send your texts? I have a Ford Escape so whatever it comes with. You can only push the Home button the large button at the lower center of the iPhone screen. To receive a message, push and hold the Home button to access Siri. In both cases, when you are finished, Press and hold the Phone icon on your steering wheel. The Sync text message system was developed for Android phones. In future models of Fords with the Sync 3 system the iPhone will probably be almost fully integrated into the system commands.
I do not have the touch screen.
The Sync message capability is limited to phones that comply with the protocol, at present that is just Android-based phones. Sync was not set up to send or receive texts with an iPhone. I have a Ford F and Iphone When I am in the truck i do not getting an audible notification when I receive a text. Make sure 'Show Notifications' is on. If this is already on I would suggest a Sync Master Reset and re-pairing the phone. PlatinumOwner , June 9, Top of Page.

mSpy makes customers happy
Once I’ve tried mSpy, it has become an invaluable part of my life as a parent. It lets me be updated with what my kids are doing - this way I’m sure that they’re ok. I also like that I can adjust settings, deciding which contacts, sites or apps to block or allow.
mSpy is a nice app that helps me take full charge of my child’s internet activity. I can also block any suspicious contacts, if such occur. A nice choice for modern parents.
Safeguarding kids is of key importance for every parent. And mSpy helps me keep an eye on my daughter when I cannot be close to her. I highly recommend it!
My son is on his phones 24/7, and sometimes I just need to check that he is not doing anything bad. mSpy lets me be updated with everything he handles with on a regular basis.
I’ve looked for a nice app to keep an eye on my kids when I am not around. And a friend of mine recommended me mSpy. I like it! It helps me guardian my children in the stormy sea of internet.
The app is ostensibly intended for legal monitoring use, and there are certainly legitimate reasons to install the software. Companies, for instance, could inform their employees that they’re surveilling company phones for security purposes
