    Anyone know for sure which AT&T phones will read a text out loud with the Sync system?

    I have same question for Verizon. I am due for a new phone, but can only get though ATT or Verizon through my work. Any specific "smart phones" (or whatever they are called - iPhone, blackberries, Android, etc.) that work well??

    The iPhone does NOT work with text messages. The question was what phones will read the text messages out loud.

    I have a Droid X and have so far been unable to receive text messages in my EX. I have only had the EX 5 days though, maybe I'm doing something wrong.

    The MFT will read it out loud as long as you have a phone that has texting through bluetooth

    I'm pretty sure the Droid X does not work w/ the SMS functionality, I don't think that jackey understood the OP's question.

    I would wager it does. The feature is enabled by having the MAP BT protocol, which the X has.

    It appears you are correct, unless the carrier has crippled the bluetooth from the original manufacturer, the X should work based on that fact sheet. Other threads online indicate that sms over bluetooth is indeed working on it.

    Touche ;)

    Find it? Not sure what you mean. I'm a bit of a phone geek, and this is my second sync equipped vehicle. I knew it from way back.

    Between the way HTC butchers the bluetooth stack within sense and the way big red butchers everything else...I can confidently say not much chance.

    I have a Blackberry Torch. It works great with MySync. MySync will play musics that are storing on the phone. My co-works works have a lot of fun when I take them out to lunch, they would text my phone and then play the text messages over the car audio. You would not believe what they would say on those text messages.
