FYI: Samsung Galaxy S3 now imports contacts with 2007 iDrive!

I tried everything, but the definitive fix - for me anyway, was T-Mobile's official update to Jelly Bean (4.1.1) OS. Once update the phone still would not sync. contacts with the iDrive UNTIL I did a factory reset of the phone and then re-paired it to the car and bingo. FWIW, I am a very technical individual and tried EVERYTHING even remotely talked about on the net about this issue.... I have always been able to get the phone to pair OK, but just not transfer contacts; until now. Very happy here!
