uconnect recognizing Samsung s4
 
I recently had to replace my Samsung s3 phone with a Samsung S4 active phone. My uconnect paired the new phone and works fine except it won't download my contacts. My S3 worked fine and the contacts worked as well ,any ideas

Odd....I believe mine worked.

I believe it will only transfer over "my contacts". Check that you have the ones you would like in your truck in " my contacts"

does your S4 do any better with text messages to Uconnect? My old motorola worked fine. It would read and write text msgs through uconnect. My S3 doesn't even let me know a txt msg came through.

I heard about the text messages coming through the radio, but no my S4 does not do that. THe only way I know I have a text message is through my phone.

ya, i think us Canucks got the shaft on that feature, along with the 100 or so other goodies that our friends south of the border are allowed

EDIT: oops, that might not apply on the '12. sorry, came in the wrong door by accident (2012 Forum.. :) )

Pay attention to your phone when it's paired. Once paired, additional permissions are generally needed to be granted from the phone to the radio. Text messages, contacts, etc weren't allowed until the radio attempted to sync again through blue tooth and on the phone I had to "Always allow". This was how it worked for me on my RHB and S2/3/4.

How many contacts do you have and where are the located? On the phone or the SIM?
