Global address book not updating on blackberry

The Ford Microsoft Sync system works well with most phones.

However, if some phones, like the Android-based Samsung, HTC or even the Blackberry phones, need to be “paired” correctly.

Then go to the phone, to its Settings folder, Bluetooth Settings, Connected Devices, and then “delete” the phone. This procedure signals your vehicle to “reboot” from factory specs and it refreshes the system.

Be sure to register an account on Ford’s Sync My Ride website.

This site is a resource for all Sync users and has a wealth of resource information and videos. If you want to upgrade, use a clean USB jump drive and follow instructions to download the update from the website.

Now, to “Pair” a phone for the first time, to add a new Bluetooth device, or to continue the “Clean Pairing” process, now go to the Phone Menu, System Settings, Bluetooth Devices, Add Bluetooth Device, then push OK to begin pairing and the system will come back with a 6-digit PIN.

For those of you with the LED screen on your center console, turn the tuning knob until it says Special PIN, hit OK, and it usually comes up with “0000” (or the alternate”1234”).
