My S4 Active with 4.3 does the same thing. It will notify me of messages and read them but Sync thinks the messages are from me and responding with one of the canned messages just sends it to me.

Android 4.2.2 worked the same. Android 4.4 is supposed to fully implement MAP according to Google.

So it seems it's hit and miss with the phones and not sync then. If some of them work properly and others don't.

Maybe FordIVTteam can chime in on this one...Ive finally found other forums where people been having this issue it seems to be a ford sync issue. People are complaining about since they updated they have had problems. Apparently some people over at a mustang forum have reported an apparent fix but said it didnt show up on sync my ride. They said they had to take it to the dealer. But I believe that was for versions without MyFord. Does anyone know if there is a patch out for this issue for the 4.1.2F that I have in my focus because sync my ride does show that as my latest version. Also im still under my bumper to bumper warranty so this should be covered with me paying anything correct if there is something out there?

After the latest update on my s4 I've been unable to connect my blue tooth music and it's buggy the first five minutes if I try to make a call. I'm going to root my phone asap

Yea I found something on another site that once u root it u can apply this Bluetooth hack that flips some things in the phone so the sync system can read it. Apparently the sync has the from and to fields mixed up that seems to be the issue I am having. Confirmed via sync rep chat there is a dealer installed update available from 4.1.2f to 4.2.1f. Not showing on sync my ride but apparently its out there. The rep told me that it doesn't show any text updates besides ios6 update but hopeing it still fixes it. Gonna try and get it to dealer this weekend to get it updated if they have an opening and report if it works.

Yea you were right. Though it was still a hassle getting it done lol. I tried to get in touch with the dealer I bought it from on 4 separate occasions to get it in there and never heard back from them until today around 2:30 after I already scheduled it to go into another area dealer. 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.
