MFT Phonebook Not Downloading ALL Contacts

Well, like many of you, I recently updated to iOS 6, so I had to delete my iPhone from my Bluetooth devices and readd it. Although, after doing so, it was nolonger downloading my entire phonebook for some reason. That being said, does anyone know if this is a MFT issue (i.e. a phonebook contact limit), or some kind of issue with iOS 6?? Any help would be MUCH appreciated!! Thanks

If it worked before and doesn't work now, I'd say that's an issue caused by iOS 6. ?

Well, before I rule this out, I'd like to find out if there is an actual limit in the number of contacts you can have in your phonebook. Does anyone know?

Maybe I interpreted your original post wrong. I understood you to say that it "no longer downloading my entire phonebook". Which I took as, it used to download the entire phonebook. Is that not correct?

I'm not sure what went wrong on your end but I had no problems at all after the upgrade.

I'm gonna weigh in, for what it's worth.

I have a 2013, I see that you all do not. I updated to iOS6 and have had zero problems with MFT. I did not have to delete and re-sync. I got in my car and it worked just as well before the update as it did after, plus now the messaging feature is operational.

No worries, and, truthfully, I don't actually know for sure if it used to download my entire phonebook. The first thing that keyed me off though, was that it stopped in the "J" section and it didn't include my wife, Jessica (which it always had before). Also it used to have my contact for "Parents" too, and that's obviously not there either. With that said, I figured that I must have reached the internal limit for contacts on the MFT system. That's why I'm really curious about whether or not there IS an actual limit. Does anyone know? Ford Rep??

cool story bro. it works in the 2012 too as they are the same thing. I deleted and re-paired mine after the update as well (ford recommends this). Phone book took a little bit to fully populate. This might just be a case of it not having enough time to download the data. Bluetooth is a very slow interface. Re-Pair it and go for a long drive would be my advice.

Well, after doing some snooping around in the Bluetooth settings, I found a nice workaround. I set it up to only download my favorite contacts, and then I just loaded up my favorites with all if my commonly used ones. After deleting my phonebook and redownloading it again, everything looks great! :-D

Just uncheck "All Contacts"
