I'm using a Google Nexus 4 and loving every second of it, inside the car and out.

If you're asking what phones are the most compatible with all of the available features, I think it's 3 year old blackberries. That said, I have a galaxy nexus and it doesn't do the text messaging, but is nearly perfect with everything else.

I just really tired of trying to place a call using sync, only to have the call go to my iphone in the console. Sync makes the call, but then drops it to the iphone once the call connects. This gets corrected when I delete the bluetooth on both, and then pair them again. It's getting old....

It seems that some Android phone work very well whereas others do have some issues.
Windows 7.X or Windows 8 phones seem to work well with MFT.

Ok, well I was talked into the Lumia 920 - but when I try to set it up in the Focus, the MFT/Sync returns a reply of this phone does not support this feature for the text messaging. What did I miss? I cannot anything else on the 920 except for the BT on/off screen.

The car still says text is not supported but it is through voice. When you get a text, the phone should announce over the car speakers and give you the option to listen to the message or ignore it. After it is read, you can speak your reply or tell it you're done.

my Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been working flawlessly.

i take my calls through sync and stream music through pandora.

it's annoying that you have to say bluetooth audio to sync everytime you enter the vehicle though just to get your streaming music on the car.
