Ford sync read text messages iphone 7 Plus

So whether or not you click listen doesn't get transmitted back to the phone.. So since Android doesn't have programming for this feature to work hand-in-hand it just sees "Oh, something happened with this text in Sync so it must have been read already" and it sucks REALLY bad. My girlfriend often gets angry at me about this when I don't reply to her question she asked 2 hours ago lmao.

Skywalker15 Do you have this issue on your iPhone? Not sure if this is the same, but I have a 16' ST2 with Sync 3 and it never marks my texts as read. I have an iPhone 7 plus.

If I tap the listen function it will mark it as read though. But if I leave it alone, the message still shows unread. It may just be an android thing.

All Tips About iPhone and Ford Sync You Need Know

Sep 30, AM in response to MoonJ. In response to MoonJ. Thank you for the response, I went to the Ford website and the video was helpful. When I updated my phone it turned off "show notifications" in the blue tooth setting for Sync. It was that simple. Again thanks for response. I too have this same problem with Ford Sync 2. I do have the show notifications on for my BT connection but I still get the error. This is NOT on Ford. This used to work.

Please advise other steps to remedy.

How to get text messaging working on Ford Sync - Android Forums at

Oct 2, PM. Oct 3, AM in response to rlh In response to rlh I found the solution. I have two ford vehicles, both with sync. Both are paired to my iPhone.


This creates two instances of "SYNC" devices in the blue tooth list. BOTH of these devices needed the "Show Notifications" turned on even though I was only connected to one and had the one toggled on.
