How do I connect to Ford Sync?

To use any of the phone features for SYNC such as making a call, receiving a text message, or using SYNC Services, you must first connect, or "pair" your Bluetooth-enabled phone. Pairing is what allows Bluetooth devices to communicate securely with each other.
Please note that SYNC can make and receive calls using only one paired phone at a time.

Before you start

There are a few things you should do before starting step 1:
Turn on your

  • Mobile phone
  • Vehicle
  • Radio/SYNC

Enable your phone's Bluetooth feature and make your phone discoverable.

Press the Phone button to access the Phone Menu. Press OK. Add a Device displays. Press OK.

SYNC prompts, "Press OK to begin pairing device." Press OK.

SYNC prompts, "Search for SYNC on your device and enter the PIN provided by SYNC." Press OK.

A six-digit number displays on the screen for three minutes, during which time SYNC actively seeks for the same number from your phone.

Type the number displayed by SYNC on your phone key pad.
Upon successful pairing, a message displays confirming the phone is connected.

Exit the phone pairing process by pressing the Arrows to select the Exit message and press OK to leave the Phone menu.

IPhone sync with Outlook Calendar - Appointment time put on iPhone 1 hr later.

This solution pertains only to the one hour time difference people notice upon syncing to MS outlook.

In iPhone, there are two areas where you have an option to change your time settings.

1. When you go to 'settings', then to 'general', you can set up time and date, and also 12-24 hour format. Please note that changing the time here DOES NOT correct the problem, despite iPhone displaying correct date, time and time zone. Many people in this thread have stated that the problem persisted despite them setting appropriate time zone.

2. When you go to 'settings', then to 'mail, contacts and calendars' row (NOT the 'General' row) - you get an option to change your time zone at the very bottom of all the choices. You will see that wrong time zone is selected here - likely cause of the problem. Correct this choice and the one hour discrepancy between appointments in outlook and iPhone disappears.

Additional problem solutions - in the solution No. 2, if you set 'Time Zome Support' to 'ON', then all your appointments in the calendar will be displayed in the time zone of your HOME address. In other words, for example, if you are a person in central time zone, your appointments will be displayed ALWAYS in central time zone format - they will NOT change automatically when you travel from central time zone to eastern time zone. On the other hand, if you set the time zone support to 'OFF', then all your outlook appointment display times will change and adjust according to any time zone you travel to - This is often an inconvenience since most of us would like to remember our appointments as they were made in our home time zone, regardless of what time zone we traveled to.

Please note that the above solution pertains to only display of appoint times in outlook - This solution does NOT relate to the time displayed by iPhone and how that displayed time adjusts when you travel to different time zone away from your home time zone. This second issue is addressed below -

You can get your iPhone to display the current time in two ways -

1. Either always show the time in your home time zone, regardless of where you are (i.e., a person from Texas central time zone can set up to see the time always in central time, even if he/she travels to another time zone). This display setup is good for people who always think of time in their home time zone and then do mental conversions to reach at the local time zone time.

2. On the other hand, you can get iPhone to do this for you and change displayed clock time automatically to the local time zone that you have traveled to, away from your home time zone. Please note that enabling this capability in iPhone has no bearing on how the appointments are displayed in MS outlook.

Go to 'Settings'. Go to 'General' tab. then click on 'date and time'. Pick the 'set automatically' option to 'ON'. Now, the iPhone will automatically adjust displayed time to show the current time in which ever time zone you travel to.

If you set the 'set automatically' option to 'OFF', then you can select your home time zone. Then, the iPhone will always display time in your home city time zone and will NOT change even if you travel to a different time zone.

So, in summary, there are two places you need to adjust the time zones in iPhone - to do two separate tasks, first task of displaying appointments always in your home time zone upon syncing with outlook thereby avoiding the one hour skip; Second task of getting iPhone to display either your home time zone clock, or getting it to adjust current time to reflect the time in new time zone you travel to.

Hope this helps.

Front display is orange

Look on eBay for this same phone to see if there are any phones that you can buy for cheap that have this part. Just don't buy one with a broken screen :-P

Razr v3c the screen is dim all the time

it would be your display light is out and as far as I know the only way to fix that is to get a whole new LCD screen assembly. If that is the case go buy a new phone and not a RZR I know it's popular but honestly I've seen hundred's of them in my store busted and unusable after only a month or so. Not all motorola phones are bad but this one is the biggest piece of crap. I rank it with Kyocera phones!!!!!!
