PaulyTunes Thanks for all the help in this thread! I was able to get my wife's iPhone to work right away following the instructions. My iPhone was a little more problematic. I couldn't get the text message notification to work until I completely unpaired my phone from the car and then repeated all the steps. Now both of our iPhone 5's can receive text notifications. I assume that if we are both in the car, it will default to whoever's iPhone is set to the favorite (which in our case would be the driver).

Thanks,
Paul

gtncpa While your phone is connected to the vehicle, go into your phone’s Bluetooth settings and activate Notifications. On your iPhone:

1. Tap Settings > Bluetooth > SYNC*
2. Set Show Notifications to ON.
Before you check if you can start using the text messaging feature right away, you’ll need to restart your vehicle:
1. Turn off the ignition.
2. Open the driver’s side door.
3. Wait for the instrument cluster to turn off.
4. Close the driver’s side door.
5. Start your vehicle again.
Also, ensure that your iPhone screen is locked. Your iPhone will only notify SYNC of incoming text messages when the screen is locked.
You can now test the text messaging feature. Have a friend or family member send a text message to your iPhone and check for the following:

1. SYNC should alert you to the incoming text message with a soft tone, and you should see a notification displayed on your center screen.
2. Press or pull the Voice button and say, “Listen to text message.”
3. SYNC should read the text message aloud.
If SYNC was able to display an alert and read the incoming text message aloud, you’re all set! You can continue enjoying this feature without additional set up.

It still works. When you re-paired your phone after installation you may not have set notifications to "on" so you established a profile with them off. To get them back on see post #12 in this thread.
