I don't yet have a smart phone but I'm researching features and sync compatibility. Here are a few things I've found:
- Make sure bluetooth MAP is enabled on the phone.
- If you make changes to the setup on the phone, re-pair it to sync so sync rediscovers the phone's capabilities. It may only do this at pair time not each time it is linked.
- You should be able to dictate reply text messages directly with phone, android needs "voice actions" setup a free download if not already installed. I think Siri on iPhone will do this as well. Windows phone? I don't know. Some android phones have a car mode with just a few large buttons (icons) for minimal hand use and lots of voice control. The phone would need to be mounted where the speaker phone function is effective.
-Sync manual says that it has 15 canned responses and room to add custom replies to be stored ahead of time. I don't know if they can be used while driving.

I hope this helps some do their own testing and research to get the most out of sync and the smart phone capabilities.
