I have Ford's Sync service on a 2010 Flex. It works fine and connects through Bluetooth to my iPhone 3G and 3GS, for calls, voice and iPod use. Both the Ford and iPhone software have the latest updates.
The Sync, which is a MS product, has a messaging feature, where the car's system can send service warnings and status messages to a paired phone through text messaging or e-mail. When I attempt to turn this feature on, the system reports that the connected phone is not capable of connecting this way.
The Ford dealer suggests I use a Windows Mobile or Android phone, saying "all Apple products are crap." The dealer had originally said that I would not be able to pair my iPhone with the car at all and that is certainly not true. Is this just a Microsoft doesn't want to play nice with iPhone issue or is there some setting or other option that I am missing?
