New Headunit & GT500 Steering wheel

So I installed a new Pioneer AVH-X2500BT with a Metra dash kit/wiring harness & ASWC-1 steering wheel control.... and all is good except I can't get the phone buttons on my new GT500 steering wheel to work.

The other stereo buttons (volume, seek, mode, etc) all work fine.

Anyone with the GT500 steering wheel and aftermarket phone-capable headunit gotten those buttons to work? Maybe they're designed to only work with the OEM Ford Sync system?

Well I got the answer to my question through PAC Audio tech support. (The tech support at Metra/Axxess was of no help)
I called PAC Audio because I thought maybe their SWC device would work better than the Metra/Axxess one.
But according to them, not only does my headunit not support the phone buttons on the steering wheel, he isn't aware of any headunit that does, either with the PAC Audio or Metra/Axxess SWC devices.
