That's certainly true regarding the lame subset of Bluetooth profiles supported by Apple.

Here's a list of the phones Ford has tested for various functions from syncmyride.com.

As you can see, not too many of the phones support the texting function. Ford seems to be ahead of the phone manufacturers on this one.

I like how the original Droid can do more than the newer Droid X...

I have tested both the Blackberry Torch and the Motorola Atrix. The Torch is more difficult to pair, but works perfectly, even with text messages. The Motorola Atrix does not work with text messages.

Here is some info I received from Ford.

The only other reference that we have is the list on Best Buy .com
I will send you the link to it. Visit www.bestbuy.com
Click on the Weekly Ad link on the top of the pageClick on the Mobile Phone Buyers Guide in the More Ads section on the right side of the pageScroll through to page 19 of the guide to view the tested devices
