New phone do I need to re"sync"

I had a droid but now I have an iPhone and was wondering if there was any special procedures to get it to sync up with my focus. I remember having to go online and register, but can I just turn my bluetooth on my phone and be good to go?

Yes you have to re-sync. Your manual spells it out clearly. You should probably delete your old phone from the system and install the new one as your primary phone.

If you kept your same phone # you don't have to re-register it online at syncmyride.com but yes, as kam said, you do have to pair the new phone with the car (and as he also said, probably wise to delete the old phone).

Hi, 12FocusSE -

kam327 is right! You'll have to pair your new phone with the system. I recommend performing a Master Reset first. Here are instructions for both processes:

Master Reset:

Pairing:

Follow the steps below to enable Bluetooth on your iPhone:

SETTINGS > GENERAL > BLUETOOTH

If you ever change your phone number, copernicium112, be sure to edit the number that's already in the account. Creating a new one will prompt you to pay for services. To do so, login to your account and navigate through the following:

click on the ACCOUNT SETTINGS tab > Click on MY SYNC ACCOUNT > PHONE NUMBER MANAGEMENT

If either of you have questions, let me know.
