I just wanted to pass along some info regarding the text messaging feature.
In order for this to work your paired phone must support MAP (Message Access Profile). MAP is a Bluetooth standard developed for the engage of text messages.
According to Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), MAP adoption by mobile device manufacturers is still in its infancy but the growth needle is starting to quiver.
I'm in the same boat as some of you. My Samsung Transform from Sprint is incompatible. Hopefully future firmware updates will enable this feature on more phones.
Other than text messaging, the iPhone is compatible with the SYNC system. You can make hands-free calls, use voice commands to control your iPod (when connection via USB), and can even stream music through Bluetooth audio.
If anyone has questions, let me know.
