    I have three Verizon Android phones, running Android 6.1, 6.1.1, and 7.1. The Tesla app features work on all three phones, with the exception of syncing contacts and call history.

    Does anyone use a Verizon Android phone and have success syncing contacts?

    If so, I hope you won't mind sharing your phone model and the version of Android you're using.

    I'll sell the car before I'll switch to the iPhone!

    Please help, thanks!

    Note: The car was at the local Service Center yesterday for five hours, and the still could not get any of my phones to sync.

    I have the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S9+ and it syncs my contacts just fine. Android version 8.0.0, Samsung version 9.0.

    Did you pair the phone to the car as a phone (not only as a key)? There's a pairing process to use it as a key, and then regular BT pairing to use it as a phone.

    I have noticed that my phone isn't particularly reliable about how quickly it will pair to the car when I get in (versus my add-on BT adapter for my old car which always worked but was audio only). Also, seems every time I make/take a call I don't hear the other end for at least 30s then it starts working.
