problem using my phone with sync

When I try to make a call using the voice commands, it doesn't recognize my contact list. Using a name in the contact list, I get "no listing". Anyone else have this? Do I need to do something different?

I have problems with sync not finding my location for GPS directions. Totally useless in that part now. But contacts and other commands work flawlessly.

Same thing happens to me all the time. That "I'm sorry" message drives me insane.

I'd like to help. Are you two receiving this message while using SYNC Services?

I also have an issue with my Samsung Galaxy S3 always needing to be re synced in order for it to allow access to text messages. It will work for a while but then it will start saying "this device does not support text messaging over bluetooth" even though it worked fine before.

When syncing I checked the little "remember" option when it asked to allow access to text messages. So I'm scratching my head on this one.

I can't keep bluetooth connected on my LG Optimus 4X. It works for a day with a fresh pairing (deleting/re-pairing), but the following day as soon as I connect a call (when the other party answers), the phone drops the connection. So it rings, then poof! Sync still thinks it's there for a bit before saying phone disconnected, and the phone can't turn off the bluetooth (needs a reboot). Any ideas? It's a puzzling one for sure, and quite annoying.

Unplug battery for ten min and see if that helps its called a hard reset and has been known to cure many sync concerns
