SYNC & Galaxy SIII Problems

Has anyone else had issues with SYNC and the SIII? It seems like everyday I have to repair the phone with SYNC. I love my SIII and the SYMC system but this is getting ridiculous. I didn't have this problem with my Droid X.
Help would be appreciated.

How were you able to manage this? I have unpaired/paired my phone numerous amounts of time and everytime I leave the truck and come back it has to be paired again.

No problem with mine either but still cant read texts. Sync needs to get on the ball. The 2 most popular phones Galaxy IIIs and I-phone bother cant read text.

I can't even pair it, but I only tried for a few minutes. Picked up the neighbors roku box easy enough though.

Just picked up my 2013 Platinum on Wednesday. We had a terrible time getting my SIII to pair up. Had to unpair it and start over. Tried numerous times and then all of a sudden it worked. Haven't had any trouble since. Seems to work just fine now. In and out of the truck and it connects each time.

Update

Seems to be working better now. Haven't done anything different 'cept cuss out the phone a few times. Maybe that helped.

The 2013's with the 8" mytouch are not only supposed to alert you when you receive a message but there's supposed to be an option to listen to your texts. Not working with my Samsung S3 but my buddy has the same truck and an iphone 4 and it works with his

fyi... I've had my GS3 (Tmobile) paired with my F150 since Nov with no issues. sync reads my received texts out loud, plays my iheartradio stations via sync apps and streams bluetooth audio flawlessly.

Looking for help too. My SIII works great except for the texting part. No alerts or reading the texts. Says something about phone not set up to do that. I am on Verizon by the way. any suggestions would be appreciated.
