My Blackberry Bold 9900 (work phone) syncs perfectly every single time - same with the 9800 before it. No worries. My GS2 had issues on GB, but since it was upgraded to ICS I've had no problems.

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.

X2, our iPhone 4 and 5's have worked flawlessly in both of our Foci.

Lumia 920 - fail

The lumia 920 is hit and miss. Sometimes plays music over BT, sometime recognized as a USB device, sometimes not.

I love my iPhone 5, but it doesn't get along well with SYNC at all.

We've been having a lot of people come in with a lot of newer smart phones that are having trouble. Most of the iPhones have issues with sync. Smh

My GS3 works great except for the messaging. It will sometimes pop up new messages received, but it won't let me compose new messages.
