If the phone doesn't support the protocol and the car does, then it is a Droid problem, not a Ford Sync problem. Currently there are very few auxiliary devices (possible none) other than Ford Sync that are capable of doing text messages over bluetooth. But now that Ford several million cars with Sync on the road, the manufactures should step up and support the protocol. I have had Sync for almost 2 years now, it is standard equipment on every well equipped Ford car and available for about $200 on lower end models.
I need some help I was able to sync the droid to my F150 and I can make and recieve calls but how were you able to get it to play music having a hard trying to get mine to.
I had the same problem in my son's Focus. I will try your solution when I'm next in his car, someguy. Thanks.
Wow...I thought Sync only worked with Zune and iPod. That's great!
I've been thinking hard about a Ford Fiesta next year.
The reading of text messages is device dependant. There are NO Verizon phones that will play text messages through Microsoft Sync so I suspect it's a Verizon issue, not a device issue. You can find a list of all phones that will play text messages on the SyncMyRide.com website.
