Default Camera/ Nav/ Text Messaging

So i just lost my text messaging on my 8.4A. 15$ month is a rip off BTW!! Anyway, i love my radio except i want a few features!! I cant see paying 500$ for the NAV and 600$ for the back up camera Installed and programmed + 15 Month for text messaging..
Is there any after market radio solutions that i can get that has the ability to write/ read text messages, AV inputs/ NAV, and let me use the factory controls?

How did you lose texting ? I wasn't even register to uconnect and mine was working. Try pairing your phone again.

I called them and they said it will not work without there basic package. I told her that price is half my data plan and they need to come up with a annual price. Like 50 tops.

I saw the Pioneer app radio does have a connection for factory controls but I'm not sure about the text messaging. Anyone have this radio?

they are wrong. you don't need a subscription of any sort to be able to send/receive text messages as its connecting to your truck via bluetooth. no way would a subscription enable/disable connecting your phone to the truck!

the only "after market solution" would be an aftermarket head unit that (also) would connect to your phone via bluetooth.
whoever told you you cant receive text messages via your truck w/o a subscription is pulling your leg.

I don't know if you can find an after market radio that will do everything that you want/need to have

Check out the CRUTCHFIELD website

You can receive messages and send "canned" messages without a Uconnect subscription but it won't transcribe your voice into messages without the subscription.

I'm in Canada, no such thing as a subscription service of any sort for our Rams anyway unfortunately.

with a subscription service are you able to transcribe when your connected to an iPhone?
with my ram i dont have the ability to send a text what so ever , even a "canned" text. iphones dont support that feature. only feature i get in regards to text messages is the ability for my truck to read them out for me.

Dizzle, receiving text messages and having the truck notify is all your going to get. You need to enable "show notifications" in the Bluetooth section on your iphone to be able to have it send texts to the truck display.
This is all local stuff, nothing to do with Uconnect subscription services. Anything else, we don't get access to anyway in Canada because there is no agreement with UConnect and any of our mobile data providers. Watered down.

im aware of what the Bluetooth capabilities are, that's what im saying, all i get is the ability to read/hear my text messages and use the "voice" feature (local stuff via bluetooth) to make calls.

i was referring to the inability the iphone has to send/reply to text messages via voice or the "canned" messages. as well as not having any sort of subscription based services via my Canadian RAM.

at least with my android device i can send "canned" messages, and actually view my inbox correctly, rather than only showing the messages that have been received since the truck has been paired to the iphone.

compared to the features my old 2004 ram had, im not complaining lol
