Was thinking about doing the upgrade to 2.11 MFT soon but still deciding if it's the right move.
Until the software rebuild of MFT comes out in 2012 I would use the old saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it" - in other words, if it works for you, id leave it alone.

I hardly use my MFT in excess, a.k.a. I don't even touch it (just play music) and it will randomly freeze up when on iPod mode per say. lol. Just happened twice, but still.

-I use the whole SYNC my iTunes, too.

It seems that another one here has the same problem. Test with another phone though. It is maybe an iPhone 4S bluetooth problem.

it's been happening to my iPhone 4 lately...

Also...does anyone know a way to get it to play Podcasts in order? it seems to try and play the most recent ones first instead of the oldest ones first.

Tested it with an iPhone 4, worked with no problems. Everyone reading this, send an email to ford sync and tell them to fix the issue otherwise they will not know about it.

So Bluetooth works fine for your iPhone 4 but not 4S? I paired my friends 4S and it worked fine, but I didn't try it over several days.

You can try reverse pairing.

Or I'd delete all the phones, do a reset of MFT and a hard reset of the phone and do a clean pairing, or a clean reverse pairing. After your phonebook has transferred turn Off the auto phonebook download feature.

I cut and pasted some of the Syncmyride Tips for Phones

http://origin.syncmyride.com/Own/Mod...gSyncTips.aspx


Try a Clean pairing

If you're having trouble pairing your mobile phone with SYNC, try a Clean pairing of your mobile phone with SYNC. Check your mobile phone for Bluetooth settings. Is SYNC listed? It may be listed under Hands-free Devices. Delete the SYNC listing.

Then check the Phone Menu on SYNC for Bluetooth Devices. If your mobile phone appears, delete its listing.

When both devices are clean of any prior connections, then try pairing your mobile phone to SYNC.


Try re-setting your mobile phone

If you're having trouble pairing your mobile phone with SYNC, try re-setting your mobile phone. Please follow your mobile phone directions for safely re-setting it.

Check Security and Auto Accept Settings

Your mobile phone may have Security Settings or an Auto Accept function that may interfere with pairing and connecting your mobile phone with SYNC. Check your mobile phone instructions to be sure the settings are not disabling your mobile phone's connection to SYNC.

Turn OFF Auto Phonebook Download

Try turning OFF the Auto Phonebook Download feature on SYNC. If this feature is ON, each time you connect your mobile phone with SYNC, the system searches for updates. Turning this feature OFF can help stabilize the connection with SYNC. You can choose to manually update your phonebook with SYNC through the Phone Menu.

Remove special ringtones and pictures

If you have problems calling or receiving calls from one or a few contacts, it may be due to a ringtone or picture that is associated with the contact. If this is the case, follow your mobile phone instructions for removing an associated ringtone or picture with that contact. Then try downloading your phonebook to SYNC, again.

Increase the volume

If the volume on SYNC is low when you are using your mobile phone, try turning up the volume on your mobile phone-while it is connected to SYNC. Many mobile phones have a dedicated volume control for Bluetooth-hands-free devices, which will also control the volume when it is connected to SYNC.

Hi Justy how is Shimmer? Any new photos?

Did anything change around the time BT started to drop? Did it start after an iOS 5 upgrade? Any new BT devices nearby?

I'd try deleting the phone, resets, re-pair, turn off the Auto Phone Book and if that doesn't work, try the reverse pair.

Hey! No new photos of shimmer to report! We just got some snow so I may do some wintery shots once we get a bit more. :D

It definitely didn't happen before so it very well could have been since iOS 5 was installed....I'll give some of those suggestions a try.
