Hi, TS_2196,

In case you're not referring to Bluetooth audio, reverse pairing your phone may help. Here are the links on how to reverse pair your phone:

SYNC - http://support.ford.com/sync-technol...air-phone-sync

MyFord Touch - http://support.ford.com/sync-technol...c-myford-touch

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks, I'll try it out. What exactly is the difference between a regular pair and reverse pair?

Sorry for my delayed response, TS_2196. Reverse pairing allows SYNC to find your phone instead of your phone finding SYNC. With some phones (like Samsungs), a reverse pairing creates a better connection.

I tried it, and it definitely works a lot better than a normal pairing. Although it doesn't recognize the phone 100%, it's less frequent. As far as I can tell, the phone itself doesn't have a very good bluetooth connection...
