SYNC Phone Bluetooth (2013)

I'm still a Focus n00b and was wondering why I have to frequently manually reconnect my phone to SYNC. Does it have a bug keeping it from staying connected to the phone consistently or is it my phone? I have a Samsung Brightside which isn't the greatest of cell phones...thanks for the help!

I thank its android man. I had an IPhone before I got my HTC One and I didnt have to keep reconnecting like i do now . I think It was the updated version that has It doing that. AKA there might be some bugs in it that they need to fix. Hope this helps.

It's not Android...I have an HTC One with no issues, and before that it was an HTC Evo 3D.

We are saying the phone isn't staying connected to sync when you turn on/off the car. Like not having to manually go thru the menu to Bluetooth audio in order to listen to music or make calls via sync.

That's the software. Early builds had that ability, but people complained that it drained their phone batteries.

They should have left the option.

That's what I was saying! Just different words ha
But they need to brush up on their software skills.

So, if I want to update my SYNC, how would I go about doing so?

15-20 mins I believe and it should be free. Did my update for free where I live.
