TehMark It isn't a Microsoft/Apple thing. It's a Ford thing. You don't see these issues in Elantras or Jettas.

knightp25 You figure its Microsoft, it doesn't work with apple, but it does work with Microsoft's phones

TehMark I'd suggest using USB for everything. Ford's terrible system doesn't work with iphones very well at all. I've had nothing but frustrations.

Sorry but no to both.

The protocol for Bluetooth messaging was announced as a new feature of iOS 6, but it never made it to the final version. Some part of it made it though because MFT thinks it can send messages but it cant.

Hopefully in a future update they will fully implement it.
