This is great feedback, everyone!
For more information on some of these phones and others, check out our compatibility chart:
It was recently updated with iPhone 5 information.
For those of you experiencing connection issues, I recommend performing a Master Reset, removing SYNC from your phone, and Reverse Pairing the device. Certain phones hold the best connection when paired this way, instead of the usual process of your phone finding SYNC, SYNC will find your phone.
In regards to the text messaging feature, the phone must support Message Access Profile (MAP). This is a Bluetooth standard developed for the exchange of text messages.
If anyone has any SYNC or MyFord Touch-related questions, don't hesitate to give me a shout.
