I have a Samsung galaxy mobile running android, my car runs Microsoft sycn, I have tried to get them to sync but I have discovered the two are incompatible, at least thats what Microsoft say, Virgin and Samsung had no idea the two were incompatible. Is there an that will solve the problem.

Its a Galaxy ace GT-S7500. The car is a Mustang, all my other phones have connected ok, also as they connect via Bluetooth, I did assume that thats a standard.

The Galaxy Ace is not listed on the compatibility list but that may well mean that they have no tested it rather than it doesn't work.

Have you read Can you pair a phone?

I've tried everything but they won't sync to each other. The phone finds my neighbors ipad but not the car, I'll try to sync em up later in a car park along way away from anything, is it poss the signal form the ipad is too strong, just a thought.
