Default Sync and the Galaxy S3

Anyone have this setup? Any issues? (other than the general babbling about sync itself)

I got my Galaxy S3 a couple of weeks ago and love it. I got it to pair right up. I noticed a couple of times where it didn't connect when I got it but I just told it to connect and then it did. On the plus, I never got sync to recognize Pandora on my iPhone 4S but after getting the S3, I went to apps and there was Pandora.

My 2013 F150 was at the dealership yesterday and they performed a software update on my SYNC. Prior to the update the truck did not recognize texts from my GS3. Now it does.

I have a 2011 Ecoboost with Sync and the S3. It works great. Messaging even works. No issues at all.

I went from a '11 Lariat with Sync (no nav) to a '13 Plat (with nav) - the S3 works with bluetooth on both, but it doesn't work with USB without a special cable apparently.

Also - I hate that MFT doesn't have Applink - why would they leave that out?

So far so good with S3. Works better than the other 3 phone I have had in the last 2 years (HTC Evo, Nexus, and Moto Razr Maxx). Occasionally fails to connect via bluetooth but an easy fix. Text messages work.
