If you pair the phone and then go and try to set notifications to "on" later you may or not see "show notifications" and even if you do see the option it appears that even if you set them to "on" after the fact the setting may not stick (as seemed to be the case for nseah).

I'm on an updated iPhone 5 as well so it should work for you.
Ill try again can I test just by texting myself? Would that work as a received text?

Hmmm. Not sure. Never tried it. I can give it a shot this evening when I get back to my car unless someone else on here can get to it sooner and post their result.

Try this:

1) Delete your phone from the car. Delete Sync from your phone. Wait a minute to make sure everything clears.

2) Turn the phone off and on again. You don't need to reboot the phone but make sure it is physically off and then on (not just lock and unlock). Turn the car off and then on again.

3) Pair your phone fresh w/MFT. Let it do its thing (phonebook loading, voicemail #, 911 assist, etc.).

4) On your phone, turn BT off. Turn it on again.

5) Hit "connect" on the MFT screen to reconnect BT.

6) Go into the settings screen for Sync. You should now see "Show Notifications".

7) Set Notifications to "On".

8) Back up a screen on the phone and turn BT off again. Turn it back on.

9) Hit "connect" on the MFT screen again to reconnect to BT.

Have someone send a test message.
I can confirm that this works. Thanks so much for posting these steps.

I'm using an iPhone 5, latest iOS and latest MFT. It will not work however if you text yourself. But when I had a friend come outside and text me it did work. I didn't have to shut the engine on and off, just from ACC to Off worked for me. I also rebooted my phone.

Thanks again!

When I texted myself it didn't work. When a friend texted me it did.

I suspect maybe it has to do with the screen on the iphone being unlocked?
