Hi Guys

I'm hoping you can helpme out if you own either a Samsung Galaxy SIII or an HTC One XL android mobile phone.

I am about to upgrade to one of these phones but have hear that the Samsung doesn't work very well with the bluetooth in my car (Mondeo 59 Plate Titanium with Sony 6 CD Head Unit) I haven't heard anything about the HTC.

I currently have an HTC that works seamlessley and would be tempted to go fo the HTC just for the same seamless experience but the Samsung seems like it might be a better phone but if it doesn't work in the car it might as well be a paperweight to me.

I know ford have a site with a list of compatable phones but the handsets on there are generally ancient so i assumed they arenot testing for my car anymore. (If it helps I have previously applied the update via USB that ford made available)

So anyone with either of those phones I would be grateful if you could confirm it works ok or adviser that they do not?

Hoping you can help
sgs3 here , have problems where it doesn't always connect to my cars bluetooth system.

Thanks for taking the time to reply Steve.

When it does connect does it run as normal? or are their other issues.

Looking like I might stick with HTC as my other HTCs have all worked perfectly.

Well I think its fine when it is connected but not having the phone that long and also I tend not to use the phone while driving that much but when I have used it controls and calls seem fine.

Its just the connection that's the problem , sometimes it connects other times it cant find my phone so I have to manually remove and repair the phone.

with android Jelly bean being released soon this may fix the issue unless its a Ford issue.
John Bloomfield
Thanks Steve - The version I'm looking at comes with Jellybean so may be OK if its not I suppose at least its still a 'hot' phone so I could flog it and use the money towards an alternative

Just in case anyone else has the same query.

I got the S3 LTE with Jelly Bean and thus far no issues at all.
I have the SGS3 with JellyBean and no connection problems at all and streaming work's perfectly
