HELP!!!! Samsung Galaxy 4S w/Microsoft Sync

Oh, boy..... I've been an iPhone user for years. I finally was talked into changing phone makers and going with the new Galaxy 4S. When i bought the phone, the number one thing that was a deal breaker with me getting this phone is that it MUST work with my 09 Focus Sync. The guy at AT&T told me (oh, yeah, it will work perfectly with that no problem.) So i bought the phone and while i was dealing with some of the features being different from the iPhone, i can deal with the little differences and relearn them. But when i tried to sync the 4S to my Focus. Oh, that was not happening. It would sync but have problems with the phone book down load and playing music from my phone. I called sync, they couldn't get it to work. Then i called Samsung tech support and after 1 hour and 15 min with him trying everything, he then tells me the 4S is not compatible. I was so upset and bummed. I really for the two weeks i had the 4S got to really like it. So i had to take it back and reactivate my iPhone. Samsung told me they will have an update coming soon to make it compatible with the 4S. So my question is this, if anyone finds out that there 4S is compatible with the 08-09 sinc, please let me know as i will be getting that phone once again when it will work with my car. Thanks

Moved this one for you, should fit better here for responses.

I've run into this type of problem with bluetooth compatibility issues, bit of a PITA when things are SUPPOSED to work together just fine (quote).

Luck!
