I have a Samsung Stellar on ICS. Bear in mind, Samsung is not known for their RF. If you have any reception or call quality issues. More times than not, it is the phone.

Ditto, but with slacker radio.

Forget iPhone, its a slowly dying device.

How do you get the contact photos to work?! Same phone same car, can't get them to work!

The "aptard" comment convinced me to stay with Android. Love it!!! "Aptard"...too funny.

Looking to go with the new Samsung DNA. Glad to hear the Jellybean OS works so well with the car and have hopes texting will work too.

^^^and BlueIce....is that a rabbit sticking out of your grill? Is there a story behind that?

Yeah I have an android and it does what it needs to and nothing more. I would have bought an iPhone 5 but it's not compatible with my pioneer dbl din.

The wife already had the contact photos on her phone, when she paired it for the first time it all just worked.

Enabling bluetooth on the iphone is a lot more work than the android. iOS not having toggles or widgets is a real PITA. my iphone is jailbroken so i have a quick menu i can access without unlocking the device to turn bluetooth on/off (bluetooth takes a toll on my battery).

Any android on jellybean 4.2 is ideal. i'll never get another iphone for many many reasons.

Very happy with my Nokia 920 now - everything works well in the car, including incoming text alerts (will read them and let me reply - all by voice).

Was well worth dumping the iPhone for this.
