Hah, guess you are going to have to invite three friends over and tell them to bring their phones. Let them know it is in the interest of important research!

Not sure if this is normal or not. It works regardless of which one is lit so I am not really concerned but it just seems odd.

It's a really nice feature so go get 3.5.1!

I have both my phone and my wife's phone added to Sync, but is it true that only one can be paired at any given time if we're both in the car?

So if I only wanted hers to be paired I guess I should disc mine or maybe turn off the BT on my phone?

ducati20 Here's a tip... you don't have to disable bluetooth on your phone to switch back and forth! In the phone options menu in Sync you will find a command for connecting bluetooth, you can choose which phone to connect to and it wil switch to that phone... I do this all the time with the press of a button or two on the system!

BrApple iirc you can select which is the primary phone and sync should connect to that phone first.

I have a similar situation, I paired my iPhone and my wifes flip phone. My phone is set to be primary. When we are both in the car Sync connects to my phone. I have turned mine off and it will then pair with her phone.

But turning bluetooth off on your phone would cause her phone to connect to sync.

MotorcityJAX You are correct, you can have 2 phones attached to the sync system, but only 1 can be active at a time, if you wanted to work off of your wife's phone, you would have to disconnect your phone and then connect hers. Doing this will pair the phone to the system and allow you to access her phone book or something like her iTunes or pandora to listen to music.
