    If you want the employee discount, go work in a Ford dealer.
    Sorry...They don't pay enough....

    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.

    Does ford offer the technology for implementation?

    Sounds like a ford problem more than a BT issue...

    I believe that this an optional implementation in the Bluetooth specification, but few manufactures have thus far have implemented it.

    Must not be as needed as some think.....I personally see no use for it. YMMV

    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 Microsoft Sync (not Ford Sync as some call it) supports playing music from any storage device. It could be iPhone, Zune, thumb drive or a 1.5 terabyte external hard drive. Anything storage device that you can connect to your PC can connect to Sync. When it's first connected the Sync device will read the MP3 tags and catalog the files for voice retreval. If there are playlists also stored on the device it will copy those also.

    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.
