IPhone Bluetooth problems

My first post after purchasing a 2012 SCREW Lariat. My iPhone will not carry a call through the truck, it will function for a few seconds and then will drop off line, followed by reconnection and so on. Has anyone else had this problem and if so is there a fix? I'll be bringing it to the dealer soon to query them but thought I might be able to get a heads up through your knowledge base.
Thanks

Welcome to fordtough.ca, and congrats on the '12 Lariat.

No real answer for you, but an observation....

With the SYNC system in Ford's being developed and owned by Microsoft, I don't think they'll be going out of thier way to make Apple products work 100% flawlessly.

I agree that some brand competition exists, but one should assume that Ford would not want to upset a fairly large segment of the smartphone population!

Thanks for the welcome and the truck is amazing other than this one exception.

My GF's iPhone 3g does the same thing. She doesn't have a Ford. The iPhone seems to want to constantly change it's bluetooth key or pin for negotiating with other things. I got her's to work by locking down the bluetooth access key or pin.

Setup an account at sync my ride, then install the update to a flash stick and update your sync, I did it and my iPhone works great now!!!
