Syncing My Blackberry with my new Ford F150

Every time I try to enter the six digit PIN from my F150 Ford sync system my blackberry accepts the first four digits then says it can't sync. Will there be a software update to allow the Blackberry bluetooth sync to accect the Ford PIN

Re: Syncing My Blackberry with my new Ford F150

Hello themunchkinsmom and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Sorry to hear you're having difficultly pairing your device to your vehicle.

 

Are you able to select your own Bluetooth PIN to connect or does your vehicle determine the PIN?

 

Have you tried connecting other Bluetooth devices to your vehicle? Can you pair your device to other Bluetooth devices? 

 

Thanks!

The Truck sets the PIN. I tried the Blackerry (my personal phone). my IPhone (company phone) connected with the first attempt. My IPAD connected wtht he first attempt. the SYNC users manual says you can sync up to 10 devices with the truck.

Are you able to select your own 4 digit PIN?

Is your phone searching for the vehicle or your vehicle searching for your phone?

Thanks!

the truck sets the PIN and it's 6 digits. then the phone searches for the truck and does find it. but the blackberry wont take the 6 digit PIN.

 

I like my Blackberry and really don't want to have to replace it with another phone, but if Blackberry can't sync then I will break down and purchace something else.

I would suggest you go to your Ford dealer and see if there's a way to change the Bluetooth setting to use a 4 digit code rather than a 6 digit.

Cheers!
