** Don't know if the above two are necessary either but I figured why not start "clean".

3) Pair your phone fresh w/MFT. Let it do its thing (phonebook loading, voicemail #, 911 assist, etc.)

4) On your phone, turn BT off. Turn it on again.

5) Hit "connect" on the MFT screen to reconnect BT.

6) Go into the settings screen for Sync (little arrow to the right of Sync).

7) Set Notifications to "On".

8) Back up a screen and turn BT off again. Turn it back on.

9) Hit "connect" on the MFT screen again to reconnect to BT.

Have someone send you a test message and see if it works (did for me). Still can't send messages but I am not done with trying to find a workaround for that one. Who knows? I may be able to, I may not. I should also note that my BT call quality "breakthrough" was noticed after I did this procedure. I am chalking it up to the master reset from the night before but there is always the possibility that this fiddling around with the BT settings had something to do with it.

I tried this exactly and it doesn't work at all for me. I just got my car back from the 3.5.1 update. I did a master reset prior to leaving the dealership. When I got home I setup my phone and ran through your procedure. Where it fails is there is no "Set Notifications" when you click the little arrow next to Sync . #6 and 7 on your list.

When I click the Messaging on MFT. It clearly states the phone connected does not support Bluetooth messaging.
