When I click the Messaging on MFT. It clearly states the phone connected does not support Bluetooth messaging.
Just double-checked my phone. Sorry - "Show Notifications". What are you seeing on your screen? Also, when you try and do certain things by voice or hitting the buttons it will continue to tell you that it is not supported. It still lets messages through and it will still read them, regardless of what it tells you.

Have you tried a phone call yet?

Yeah I think thats the issue for me is getting it to that point where it can recognize the "Show Notifications". I'm using IOS 6.01 on an Iphone5. I've tried your trick a couple times. NO go on the Notifications. Bummer.

Yeah I did test a call and remarkably better. I was going about 45 though. When I picked up my car I headed right for the highway ride home and of course for my saftey Sync wouldn't let me add my phone. Doh!.

I'll keep making test calls to see how well it'll do on the big road.

I see in the Sync setting screen:

Forget this Device

Show Notifications (with an off/on toggle switch)

Sync Contacts (with an off/on toggle switch)

and then the groups settings (phone favorites, phone recents, all contacts) below that.

You are not seeing all of these choices?

Yeah I have all that except the "show notifications" toggle.

Doh. I got it. I failed to turn my phone completely off and back on like you said. When you mentioned not rebooting I thought just lock and unlock. For the hell of it I just powered it off and back on. Now the show notifications toggle is there. Trying to test it with a friend now.

Works on mine! Thanks for the info. Nothing like a simple 9 step process :)

The only thing I didn't do was the master reset. I started my car up let the phone connect and went from there. I did notice that after I deleted Sync from my bluetooth devices on my phone and did a full restart Sync was back in the devices. SO I tried deleting it again, waiting a minute then just doing a power off and on, like you said. That worked.

Now that you know you can get "Show Notifications" to show up, try again from the beginning and note gullwing's observation above.
