Jonesy16 The actual steps to perform if you want to text via MFT with your iPhone are:

1) Pair phone via bluetooth
2) On the phone, go to Settings -> Bluetooth -> SYNC -> Turn on "Show Notifications"
3) Disconnect and reconnect to My Ford Touch (just power cycle the car or the phone).

You should now be receiving text messages through My Ford Touch. Note that you are not allowed to send messages while the car is in motion, nor will it display the message though it will read it to you if you press the 'listen" button on the MFT screen when the alert comes in.

It's actually caused by the mic issues in the Microsoft Sync system. That "air tunnel" that people hear when you talk to them is to blame for the inability for Siri to understand you. Don't believe me? Try using Siri over Sync at low speeds (less than 30 km/h) and note the difference from driving at 60 or 90 km/h. The root cause is a shotty factory install of the Sync mic in the roof of your car. Crap engineering. If you take to your dealership, they will tell you Ford is aware of this issue but there is currently no fix for it. They agreed to call me when a fix is available.

k1ngkev1n1 I saw the Chevy spark commercial that had Siri integrated looked pretty cool. Would be nice for ford if they had it too.

Sure does. The messages will show but it won't clear the notification on the phone so unless you touch your phone you will get a second audio notification that you have a text. Minor annoyance only.

not sure where ur from originally but if u speak w/ an accent (and american english one, not british or other foreign) siri often has probems... i find that w/ californians' non-accent and most accents in the american n.e. siri works ok.
