  1. I have a Verizon s9, but the instructions for the Message+ says I have to pair it with a blue tooth device.. Why? I don’t have a BT device to use while im driving.

    So why doesn’t samsung have a simple driving mode option that rejects calls while you have drive mode on, that gives a standard recorded message that you are driving, and cannot answer the phone at that time?

    Or do I just do what I do now and ignore the calls, and let them go to voice mail.
