    The Galaxy SII on Straight Talk is an Amazing Phone... best one I have used, and I think I've almost used them all at one time or another and returned just as many (other than the precedent that I still have two of).

    I also have a new 2013 Ford Flex with the Microsoft Sync System. Initially, with the Stock Rom, the Galaxy SII worked perfectly with the Sync system. I now have the CyanogenMod 10.1 Rom and I must say it adds another level to the vehicle. The Stock SII rom with being as locked down as it was, would not support Tethering on the Sync system. The upgrade to Cyanogenmod fixed that. It allows Bluetooth tethering... which the Sync system can then use to allow everyone in the car to use WiFi. The vehicle actually acts as a WiFi hotspot and shares the phones data connection. I wish you could enable the bluetooth sharing and it would stay activated (like a wifi connection or the bluetooth connection to the car itself)... but it needs to be connected each time you want to use it.

    Now... a few things I have learned about the compatibility following the CyanogenMod update. As with anything there's a trade off. Since upgrading...

    The text messaging via the Sync system no longer works. It says the phone isn't compatible with Text Messaging via Bluetooth. Not really a big deal for me since I hated the functionality anyway. I didn't wan't everyone to see and hear my text messages, so I would use my phone anyway.

    Another trade off was a delay in hanging up calls via the Sync system. I'm not sure why it happens... but there is about a 5 - 8 second delay following a call from the time you press "Hang up" to the time it actually disconnects.

    And finally, I'm not 100% sure this is related to the CyanogenMod update, but I've had more people ask me to repeat myself while using hands-free.

    Just a little information for all those interested. I will update as I find out more.

    Being based on the i777, I bet it has the a2220 voice processor, so it should support noise suppression. Try that for the repeating problem :).

    If it does, I don't see an option for it. Any ideas where it may be?

    SOME OTHER SYNC ISSUES -

    1. I also noticed that there is a delay of 5 to 8 seconds when disconnecting calls, and about a 3 second delay in answering the calls.

    2. Some callers have noted that I sound muffled or they've asked me to repeat myself often on certain calls when using hands free.

    3. The phone being IN the car when you turn on the ignition will register your phone and connect with sync... however, if you start the car, then introduce the phone into it after the ignition has already been initiated, you have to manually press the "connect phone" button and select your phone. It won't connect automatically.
