As far as I know (and I could be wrong), almost no Verizon phone has ever allowed the Ford SYNC system to read text messages out loud which is one of the features the SYNC system boasts. For some reason Verizon has always blocked this on their phones. BUT...I received a text message on my Bionic from a friend this evening while driving and low and behold...IT SHOWED ME A NOTIFICATION ON MY DASH! I hit the "OK" button for it to read the text out loud and it worked! THANK YOU VERIZON FOR NOT BEING NAZIS ANYMORE! Anyone else with a Ford SYNC system needs to try this to confirm I'm not alone or that it wasn't a glitch.
