could my truck not have sync or do i need a 12 year old to set it up for me

i just bought a 12 f250 6.7 it has a phone button, i assume it has sync, i cant get it to work i have followed the online instructions, when i press the phone button it says, no phone, when the radio is on it says line in, i really thought i wouldnt have to ask my 12yr old nephew for help but i mite as he has shown me how to use different features on my Iphone, is there a chance my truck does not have the sync feature, i got it used at a dodge dealer and the slales guy told my he didnt know anything about it and i should read the manuel

Sounds like my '11 XLT. There was a phone symbol on the stereo but no button's on the steering wheel. Ford waited until the '12 MY to add the Sync as standard equip. on the XLT, Sad considering Sync is such a useful option and these trucks cost a Butload of $$$!

Must be standard on the '13s. My '12 XLT has the same thing; phone button but no sync.
