I just followed those instructions and I was able to get the notice on the screen, and I could press "listen" and it read the text message to me.

I have an iPhone 4s with 6.0.1 and the MFT with 3.5.1

If you're referring to step 6 in the list of instructions, it's telling you to go to the Bluetooth settings screen on your iPhone and hit the little arrow to the right of the entry for "Sync" in the list of Bluetooth devices paired to the phone.

I updated to 3.5.1 last week and followed these same steps, and my MFT system now receives and reads text messages sent to my iPhone 5 with iOS 6.0.1.

Sorry, my original procedure may have been unclear. Hard to describe this stuff sometimes but if you are still having problems, let me know where and I'll see if I can explain better. It does work though.

Question for those with the latest MFT update. By some miracle have they put back in the option to reprogram the star keys again?

I believe they have no plans to re-implement that feature; all new cars no longer have the star keys but instead a home icon and info icon instead, which the star keys in '12s should now default to if 3.0.2 or newer is applied.

I am sure this is probably beating a dead horse but that seems really dumb to me. Thanks for the info though.

The Focus ST in our showroom has the star keys.. and they function. I wasn't too happy to see that. I really don't want the useless buttons on my wheel
