My iPhone 4 doesn't like to SYNC music to my Ford

I have a Ford Edge with the SYNC system. My old iPhone 3G worked great with it. My new iPhone 4 works fine for phone calls but wont play music from the phone even when hooked up with the USB cable. When Im doing it by Bluetooth, I can barely here something playing but mostly just low level static.
Anybody else having this prob and/or know what to do?

Using iPhone to stream music with Ford Sync

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have the new Ford Sync system and my iPhone is synced and the phone works well for calls. But, how do I stream the music? Can I? I have a first gen iPhone running 3.0. Do I need a 3G? This is going to be difficult to troubleshoot because of the third party hardware. In the Ford sync menu for bluetooth devices it says sync the device. But it is already synced since the phone works well. I realize I sound confused...because I am. Again, any help will be appreciated.

iPhone 5 and Microsoft Sync Bluetooth in Ford Vehicle

I have an iPhone 5 that I am trying to pair and use with my Microsoft Sync Bluetooth that is built into my Ford vehicle. I am able to connect to my husbands Microsoft Sync (older version) in her Ford, but my iPhone wont work with my Bluetooth in my Ford. I am able to pair with my bluetooth (manually), but am unable to operate the iPhone (like play music) using the controls built into the steering wheel (like I am able to do when using my husbands bluetooth in her Ford). Also my iPhone does not connect automatically to the Bluetooth in the Ford when I get in the car everytime, on rare occassions it does, but for the vast majority of the time it does not, and I have to pair manually (again, my iPhone 5 does connect automatically to my husbands bluetooth when I get into his Ford). The only difference between the 2 Microsoft Sync Bluetooths built into the Fords, is mine is a newer version, while my husbands is a couple years older.


Any troubleshooting suggestions? My iOS software is up to date. Maybe the bluetooth needs an update, though I have not heard of one? I have called the manufacturer, who said it works how its going to work (ha!). Does the issue lie with the bluetooth device in my Ford or with the iPhone?


Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

iPhone 5S and Ford Sync calls are not working correctly

I bought a 2013 Ford Focus with Ford Sync Touch.  It was working fine with my iPhone 5 on iOS 7.  I recently bought an iPhone 5S and everything seems to work fine until I make a phone call.  The call connects but I cannot hear anything but loud crackling.  I have the latest software updates on both the Ford Sync Gen2 3.6.2.  and the latest iOS 7.0.4.  I have reset both the Sync to factory settings and the iPhone to Factory settings.  Still the exact same problem.  Does anyone have any ideas on what the issue could be? 

iPhone 4s Ford Sync bluetooth audio streaming

I got my new iPhone 4s to sync to my Ford Escape and had no problems making calls. I did get it to play music from my iphone playlist through the bluetooth right after I got it all synced up and it all worked fine, until I shut my vehicle off. After that, I could still make calls, but when I gave the command bluetooth audio it would search and search for a device, and then tell me no device was detected. Is anyone else having problems? The only mp3 player I have in my car is my phone, and I didnt have it hooked up to my vehicle with the cord. Thanks!

Iphone 4 os update using Microsoft sync Ford vehicles

I have a second generation Iphone 3G. I also have a Ford vehicle with Microsoft Sync. I up to a couple weeks ago had the option of saying phone, call so and so and after I recently upgraded to the os 4 update on it. I have gotten it to the phone option but it says no entries in phone book. But I do have it full of names and still can call if I say the number but there seems to be some bug that doesnt recognize it. I did call apple care I am only 1 year in to my two year contract and have tried everything in regards to it but apple said they have no knowledge of the problem and I updated my car computer through an update on sync my ride. com. I was wondering if anyone else knows of the problem and or a fix. Thanks for your time.

Text Messaging - iPhone Integration with Ford Sync

It is unfortunate that a technology leader such as the iPhone is missing a significant feature that RIM and Android have, and likely losing market share accordingly.Through the Message Access Profile bluetooth profile, Ford Sync cars (1+ million sold to date) have the ability to read out your text messages via bluetooth, ensuring that the driver isnt distracted. With so many laws banning driver distractions (hand-free requirements, no text messaging initatives), this is a significant safety issue for todays iPhone owners.I have seen many posts for years from users wishing that Apple would get on board with this technology, but so far it hasnt been raised as a viable option to implement.Please reply to this thread if you are one of the 1+ million Ford Sync owners who also own an iPhone and wish this feature was implemented. I luckliy own both a BlackBerry and an iPhone, but not all people do.

New Ford focus and sync issues

I just bought a new ford focus and can play/call via Bluetooth. When i tell the sync system to switch to usb and play all it displays that music is playing but does not output audio. Do i need to connect the aux cable for that or should audio play through the usb connection?

Problems in Ford Vehicle with Sync System

I am curious to know if anyone has had problems with their iPhone 3G in regards to the Microsoft Sync system in their Ford vehicle since doing the 3.0 OS upgrade. I did not start having problems until I installed the upgrade on my phone. Now it automatically shuffles and starts to play the iPod function on the actual phone (not the stereo) every time that I turn on my vehicle. I have to go into the iPod function and pause it to stop but if I have to turn off my car and turn it back on for any reason it does the same thing again. Also now the text messages and emails have gone into silent mode so I no longer know when I receive them unless the inside of the vehicle is silent.
I know that Ford sent me a letter mentioning an upgrade that needs to be installed for the Sync system but this was a month or so before 3.0 OS came out. I have not been able to take my vehicle in to get it done yet but I was wondering if that would solve the problem.
Im just rather frustrated because it is a huge inconvenience. I do not use the bluetooth capability to listen to music because I already have a USB port in my vehicle that I use. Please help if you are familiar with this problem.

Why won't my Iphone 4 stay synced with my 2009 Ford Flex Why won't my Iphone 4 stay synced with my 2009 Ford Flex

I recently purchased an iphone 4 through Verizon and it will not stay synced with my 2009 Ford Flex.  Ive tried rebooting the sync system with Ford, and have reinstalled the phone numerous times with no luck.


I have to turn off the bluetooth setting on the iphone (everytime I get into the car) and turn it back on, in order for the sync to work.


Does anyone else have this type of problem and is there a solution out there for this?



iOS 5 Bluetooth ford problem

I have a 2011 (UK 11 reg) Ford Mondeo with built in Sony radio with sat nav, Bluetooth and CD.  It has been linking fine to my iPhone 4 via Bluetooth both for phone calls and audio as needed running iOS 4.  However since upgrading to iOS 5 it wont keeps saying it cant establish data connection, audio breaks up then the phone disconnects intermittently, and the radio no longer displays my phone signal strength which I relied up to know I had a signal. 


This is a major pain as I need it to be reliable as it was until recently for work support phone calls.  Can anyone please advise how to resolve this?  Please dont say take it to my Ford dealer, 1) they will likely have no clue 2) why the **** should I when its Apples upgrade which has caused the problem - it was fine before I installed iOS 5.

iPhone 4 sound vs 3GS sound

My iPhone 4 sound is different from the 3GS, especially when ringing or when I lock/unlock it. The sound is more metallic and it is like there a kind of echo or more treble...Not that it bothers me but I would be interested to hear other forumers if they noticed that difference with their iPhone 4 which would mean it is nothing abnormal but maybe speakers on the iP4 are coming from a different supplier/source... ?

Sound - suddenly no sound for many things but fine for others

In searching the forum on this have found quite a few folks with similar problems, but didnt find anything with the same problem that Im having.
Ive had my 3gs for three days. All was fine until this afternoon when after a sync/charge I noticed that a game app had no audio. I tried another app, and it was fine...so I thought, okay something with the app. Replaced it, no change. Then I realized that the suspect game app had audio just fine in headphones. And so I started checking -- many of the apps that I have are now that way -- audio is fine in headphones, no audio from speaker. But strange enough, some applications have normal audio.
Ive done a restart, no change. Then did a reset all settings (from General -->Reset), no change. Then did reset using press and hold of the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button, no change.
Ive checked, bluetooth isnt on. All audio settings are on. And again, some applications are just fine, and even iPod music and video all play just fine, same with YouTube, Voice Memos and ring tones (and alerts), and even the speaker phone works. Not working (no sound) are some applications, no keyclicks for anything (even though that is turned on).
Any suggestions for anything that Ive missed trying are welcome as Im out of ideas. So unless there is some super secret hidden toggle switch for messing with users...I could use some help.

The sound silent switch on my 3G Iphone keeps switching itself from sound to silent by itself

The sound/silent switch on my 3G Iphone wont stay at the sound setting.  While the phone is in my pocket it sooner or later switches to silent.  I thought that movements might rub the sides of my pocket against the switch and so I got a rubber cover that goes around the sides of the phone and effectively recesses the switch.  However, the switch still gets moved.  Amazingly, I once saw it move while I was watching.  Nothing was touching it.  There must be a natural explanation.  If not, my Iphone is haunted! 

Mail notification sound sometimes doesn't sound on incoming mail

Every now and then the new mail notification wont sound when I get new mail. The badge alert will update, but no sound will occur. The volume is high and the mail sound is turned on in the sound settings. Normally the sound occurs within a few seconds of the badge updating, but occasionally it never sounds.
Ive noticed it for a while now, but Im not sure of the pattern exactly. It may only happen when Im running apps. Can apps disable the sound on the phone?
For example today I was in the Siri app, which sends you an email when you register. I was waiting for the mail notification sound and never heard it. I exited the app and saw that the badge alert indicated that I got an e-mail, but the notification never occurred.

When does new mail sound sound

I have 3 accounts all set to fetch hourly and am not getting any sound for new messages, however if I go to check one account it will sound if there is mail on others.
Am I just missing the sound or is it supressed using fetch only?

Problems with sound - not all sound just some

I seem to be having a problem with the sound on my iPhone (8GB). I can hear the phone when it receives and makes calls, and when I adjust sound volume in Settings and it plays back the ringtone.
I cannot hear anything when music from the iPod function is playing, no Lock/Unlock sound, no Charging sound.
When I turn the volume up and down from the side buttons, it displays it as Headphones. I can, however, hear music when it is played through headphones.
Ive restored and re-synced already, but I got nothin. Any help you could offer would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Sync problem because the sync server failed to sync the iPhone

The error message in iTunes says:

Relatively new iPhone, sync was working fine until I installed updates, how bad an idea is that? At any rate, after the updates were installed the calendar wont sync.

I have had my iPhone nearly 2 weeks and very happy with it till today.
I was looking at my phone when someone called me but the phone didnt ring as normal i.e. no ringtone. Checked switch on side that was on so tried changing the ringtone, nothing, same with text tone so I played the iPod to listern to music with out the headphones still nothing.
Done a hard and soft reset i.e. hold home button and sleep/wake button still no sound at all. All the settings in the Sounds tab are on.
Tried plugging in and taking out headphones several times still nothing.
Any ideas?
