Took it there this afternoon and within 30 minutes got a call stating it was ready. Picked it up and on note they performed TSB 13-9-22 and reprogrammed apim. Well can say now phone works as should it tells me who sent message and replies to them. The date is still wrong and still shows 2003 but tbh i don't care about that just nice having it to do what its supposed to.
I'm glad it's working now. Are you referring to the date on the text messages?

Texting is a speed-restricted feature. So, like slybarman said, you'll have to use voice commands to respond. :)

I didn't even know the system was capable of reading messages until I saw this thread. I have a Galaxy S3 as well and it has never notified me of any new incoming messages. I have a 2012 though that's well out of warranty, so I'm not sure about what hassles I'd endure visiting the dealer.

Edit: I went to the Ford support page and according to that, my Sync is up to date and was upgraded to the "latest" (V3.1.1.C) back in March 2011. That's obviously a lower version number than the one you're reporting, but it may very well be the latest for my car since it is older and likely has a different hardware revision than a '13 or '14. Not sure if FordIVTteam can chime in on whether or not there's a secret upgrade for mine, but I wouldn't mind getting additional functionality out of my Sync.

You could always get on the sync page a do a chat with the rep. They should be able to tell u if there are any updates available for your car. That's how I found out about the dealer only update I had for my car.

After the most recent android update on my G3 the text notification and text to voice connection stopped working. Selecting the messaging button on Sync told me that this feature was not available for this phone. I know it is because it worked fine before the phone updated.

I had to delete my G3 from Sync and reconnect half a dozen times before it worked. Finally, after the last time reconnecting from scratch I got the request on my phone to allow Sync to access my messaging features. The other times this request did not come up. Now the text notifications and text to voice works again.

I'm sure everyone has tried this before, but it took several times for this access request to pop up again for me. I have no idea why.
