    I am trying to figure out which phone or OS works most smoothly with the Model S. For those out with a Model S and a phone they love, what are the features that you like best about the combination? What kind of voice commands work? Will the car read and reply to texts with voice commands through your phone's bluetooth/USB? Has anyone attempted to connect to their phone's network via USB connection? I'm not looking for a debate about what phone or OS is best, just which features you enjoy, what do you feel is missing, what doesn't work, etc. Has anyone been disappointed with their smartphone integration? Surprised by an unexpected feature?

    I can only speak to the iPhone but it integrates with bluetooth fairly well. You can't respond to texts yet with voice command but maybe that's something Tesla will take care of in the future. You can use Siri to send a text though. The network doesn't work over USB yet.

    Bluetooth is there. Need to pick which phone (if more than one in the car and trained for it) is connected tho.

    Samsung here.... And it works decently. I've had to "connect phone" a few times.

    Personally, I think Tesla has some more refinement yet to do with Bluetooth on their side.
