So i paired my SG3 to my car BT system and it cannot stream music and take a phone call at the same time. It pairs just fine, and if you look on the phone it has 2 check boxes under bt for car audio and media audio both can be checked. However, if i am streaming music and i get a call the music stops and the phone disconnects from BT, it's very annoying as i have to take the call using the headset and BT does not work for the call. When i do not stream music the phone works for calls just fine in the car.
This is pretty bad since all my iphones and my HTC one X all were able to do this just fine. I would think Samsungs SG3 would be at least able to do what those phones could do, or am i assuming to much and that it's one or the other as far as BT goes.
Is anyone else having this issue?

Re: Bluetooth issues
Seems like all these devices have little quirks. At least, that's what I've noticed.
I have a Kenwood navigation system in my car. Had the HOX and BT would connect and show icons that it was working with Aha radio and Pandora but when I tried to use them, it wouldn't connect. Phone worked fine but options for getting text messages on the head unit and voice dialing wouldn't work.
Now I've got a GS3 and paired it up. No options for Aha radio and Pandora. However, now I get text messages and the voice dialing is working.
Two of the latest and greatest devices and both don't work 100% with my head unit (which is also latest and greatest).
Sorry for ranting. This doesn't help your issue but I feel your pain!

Does Kenwood make a driver or app for Android phones for your model receiver head?
I was looking at a lower model Kenwood replacement head for my car and the had was set to pair with an iPhone, but for Android phone they had a specific app to be used when pairing the phone.

Re: Bluetooth issues
@Sailindawg I'm not sure if they do or not. I have the DNX9990HD and they provide firmware updates for it through their website. The Galaxy S2 is listed but not the S3. The HOX wasn't listed either.
To pair up with my head unit, I just use the on screen menus to do it. Doesn't require an app. I've paired up my iPad, Android and someone's iPhone through the menus.

I just got the 2012 Toyota corolla. Damn thing rides nicer than my 08 Camry. The Bluetooth radio on it is pretty good. I have had no issues with my HOX. So hopefully gs3 works fine with it. Here is to hoping amazon ships is soon. I will report back when get the phone.

I have a 2011 Nissan, sorry but my phone refuses to let me input the name with out it auto correcting to the wrong word. I can actually watch the phone turn off the option to be both when I play a song. When I get a call the song stops and I see the car try and try to connect to the phone but it can't because the phone does not let it connect. For now i can only use it as a phone in the car because of this.
