JimsterG If you ever change your phone number, copernicium112, be sure to edit the number that's already in the account. Creating a new one will prompt you to pay for services. To do so, login to your account and navigate through the following:

click on the ACCOUNT SETTINGS tab > Click on MY SYNC ACCOUNT > PHONE NUMBER MANAGEMENT

If either of you have questions, let me know.

Hi, 12FocusSE -

kam327 is right! You'll have to pair your new phone with the system. I recommend performing a Master Reset first. Here are instructions for both processes:

Master Reset:

Pairing:

Follow the steps below to enable Bluetooth on your iPhone:

SETTINGS > GENERAL > BLUETOOTH

kam327 Yes you have to re-sync. Your manual spells it out clearly. You should probably delete your old phone from the system and install the new one as your primary phone.
