The other thing: my wife, for example, is listed with several numbers: "home" - her cell; "work" - her direct line at work; "mobile" - her work cell phone; "work2" - her office main desk line; and "work3" - her office's toll-free number. When I say, "call Laura," it asks, "on cell, at work, or other?" To SYNC, "other" is her normal cell phone, "work" is the direct line (the only one it gets right), and "cell" is her work cell, which I never use. (We have no land line.) Why is it that SYNC won't use my phone's terms - which I already know? Why does it have to redefine my contacts so that I have no idea what number it's going to call? It's all this extra information I have to keep rattling around this old brain. *This* is why I want a favorites list and not the entire thing...

Thanks for the info, collisionbend! Sorry about "the gears" comments, I'm on MyFord Touch overload.

In regards to your contacts, is there a group besides ALL CONTACTS under your SYNC device properties? This can be found under the following:


You'll want to make sure the group you want to SYNC is checked and not ALL CONTACTS.

Let me know what you see.
