Hi, Michaelc1220 -

What's going on? I'm happy to look into it, shoot me some details.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 supports Bluetooth MAP protocol, but while SYNC shows options for sending text messages, it doesn't actually work. Considering the Galaxy S3 is NOT an unpopular phone, getting SYNC working fully with it SHOULD be a bit higher up on the priority list than "maybe we will do something in five years". I know there isn't much you personally can do to get things working, I suspect that 3.2.x has a much higher chance of working than the OLD 3.1.1 which came out three years ago.
