To use any of the phone features for SYNC® —such as making a call or receiving a text message—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.12,25

Quick Tip

Make your phone discoverable

You'll usually find Bluetooth, the wireless technology that allows your device to connect to SYNC, on your mobile device through the Main menu> Settings> Wireless and Networks> Bluetooth.

Once you’ve accessed Bluetooth settings, choose discoverable or hands-free. You may also need to scan for SYNC on your device. If you’re having trouble, please consult your device instructions for enabling Bluetooth and making your device discoverable.
