    I have a Z30 STA100-5 on Rogers in Canada and I used to be able to receive SMS messages when I was using my Z10 and I'm fairly certain that it worked on my Z30 until this most recent SW update. 10.2.1.2941 OS version 10.2.3.3175

    The error message on my Ford says something like, " This device is not a recognized device via Bluetooth for SMS".

    I am now unable to check my SMS messages on screen while the vehicle is not moving as I was in the past. Does anyone else have this issue? Is there a setting I need to change etc.?

    I have a similar issue with my VZW Z30 and my '14 Ford Focus... what's weird is that it shows a little 'envelope' icon whenever there is a message, but I can't access them at all (even while stopped and trying to troubleshoot). I do recall it working before, although I hardly ever use it since most of my messages are BBM or WhatsApp.

    Out of curiousity, does sync still have your Z10 as a bluetooth device?

    There were a few wonky things that happened to me with my Z30/Sync when I made the switch. I deleted all bluetooth devices and re-added the Z30 and haven't had those problems re-occur. However, it may have been complete coincedence. I have yet to take the time to see if SMS works or not. Perhaps I will try tonight (if I can remember).

    And you wonder why Ford considered QNX.

    I'm pretty sure this is due to configuration in the OS. Depending on what OS I am on, My Ford Touch will either display the texts or won't. I'm on 10.3 and it is currently working for me. I'd rather it work for BBM, but that won't ever happen...

    I had that problem on my z30. I had to unhook the battery cables for a half hour. After that all works fine. I've had a lot more trouble with my 30 than I did my z10.

    Rockin Z30 on 10.2.1.2947 on AT&T

    Alright I deleted both Z10 and 30 and re added the Z30 only... everything seems to work again now.

    Except that when I tested replying to an sms from my wife's phone... it decided to reply to a lunch plans group mms thread with her and bunch of her work friends... luckily it was just "Thanks"

    *phew*

    No, I'm fairly certain I deleted it when I set my new default phone. The Z10 was also wiped so it shouldn't have re-synched but I'll check.

    OK, I'm sorry but do you people really need to be receiving texts while driving?

    Or Facebook, or Twitter?

    Really?????

    The problem now is that driving is has now become the distraction as people pay more attention to their phones.

    Please stay off the roads where I live.

    Thanks.

    I agree, but Ford Sync actually reads your text messages to you, and lets you reply with basic "canned" responses (when it works that is). It blocks the more distracting functionalities while the vehicle is moving.

    A BIG thank you to anon(1035135) for this - RIM's last OS 10 update broke my Q10-SYNC messaging capability. Nobody on the Q10 forums had any helpful ideas, but this fixed the problem. Deleted the SYNC from the Q10 and the Q10 from the SYNC then re-paired and everything is now hunky-dory ( )
