Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q.  Once my phone is paired with SYNC, is it necessary to have my phone in the car to make and receive calls?
A.  Yes. The SYNC system itself is not a phone, it simply connects to your phone allowing you to talk hands-free.

Q.  How many phones can I pair to the SYNC system?
A.  You may pair up to twelve phones. However, only one phone can be connected at a time.

Q.  Why can't I pair my iPhone/Blackberry/Droid/Smartphone?
A.  Most smartphones only accept four-digit Bluetooth pins. To get a four digit pin from your SYNC system, simply press the seek buttons when the six-digit pin is displayed. Once you see the option "special pin" press OK. If you have a navigation system or MyFord Touch, turn discoverable/visible mode on (on your smartphone). Then press the "Find Other Devices" button.
