MFT 3.5.1 and bluetooth messaging question

(If I'm posting this in the wrong place, please pardon me. Hopefully, a kind moderator will move it to the proper location.)

I recently (2 days ago) purchased a '13 focus Titanium with the nav package. The car is nice, but "my ford touch" is a bit buggy. Rather than complaining about the bugs, I'm hoping to at least find a way to work around one of them:

My phone (galaxy note II) works the MFT bluetooth pretty well. Phone calls work, SYNC works, I haven't tried to stream audio yet, and I get new SMS message notifications on screen and MFT will read them if and only if I use the MFT touch screen interface to access the messages. Actually, if I'm parked, I can even reply to messages using the touch screen.

However, even though I can use the MFT touch screen to read and reply to SMS messages, I can't use the voice command thing to do any of that. When I try to, my car tells me (with an audible voice) that my phone doesn't support messaging. (Obviously, it does - as I can access everything just fine with the MFT touch screen.)

Okay, so there's a bug.

What I'd like to know is what android-based phone DOES work with MFT 3.5.1 and verbal commands for accessing SMS messages. I've read that Samsung Galaxy S III users have the same issue as the Note II. Is there any android phone that works properly? If so, can you please tell me the model and firmware version of the phone? (on your phone: settings->about->build number)

If I get this information, I might be able to make some modifications to spoof the voice portion of MFT into thinking I have one of those other phones in order to get full support. (Based on the fact that the touchscreen works fine, I suspect the voice portion is reading the phone model/firmware string and claiming a lack of support from that instead of actually testing functionality.)

Thank you
Gary
