I agree with the dealer. ANY phone SHOULD work. Unfortunately they don't.

I can understand all functions not working but simple bluetooth connection should. I can get perfect bluetooth connection with a Garmin GPS but not with the Uconnect.

Let me clarify something. The phones with blue tooth with work. However, you may not have "complete" compatibility. Meaning uconnect may not download your phone book or not completely download it, as in my case.

You can always put the names and phone numbers into uconnect manually.

Not true in all cases. I'm not talking about "complete" compatibility just blue tooth connection. The ability to be able to talk and hear via Uconnect.

My phone (Motorola W376-G) pairs with Uconnect but thats about all. Once I try to make or receive calls the reliability is inconsistant and eventually results in the bluetooth signal dropping. The best I have been able to achieve is a one minute conversation where both sides can hear each other.

The dealer says that the Uconnect is OK. TracFone and Motorola say that the W376G has bluetooth 2.0. I don't care about "complete" compatibility, I just want to be able to make and receive calls.

I have a Garmin GPS that connects to the phone via bluetooth and have no problems. Is it too much to ask that Uconnect in a $40,000+ vehicle do the same?

See thats just it... There seems to be so many problems with the different blue tooth devices. Are the newer ones going to work? Or just the ones on the list which is outdated now since the list was created in March. Cell phones change in features and enhancements faster then computers do.

I got over having the on-star from my caddy... but I really did love the in-car phone feature and used it a lot. So far I got pulled over twice with my ram using amy cell phone. Luckily I know everyone in my local surrounding precincts as I do printing for them all... But its a pain in the butt... and still not the right thing to do.

I went to AT&T asking them for help and asking them... if I do buy a phone and it has a problem... can I exchange it for another. They said yes... for $35. Whats up with that. Even if I change it within 24 hours? Yup. They said they are tired of kids getting phones and changing them after they show it to their friends. They usually destroy packaging etc. I was like.. Come on... Im a grown up. Getting a phone to keep in my car 24 hours a day. And I dont care what my friends think of my phone. Still $35.

You're right about the technology changing so fast. Your best bet would be to take the list with you and find one that is on the list.

The only problem with that rootbear that because the technology changes so fast... and the volume of people in NYC wanting the latest and greatest... you can only find older phones refurbished.

I believe that bluetooh is an industry standard. I can understand needing a specific version, i.e 2.0, to be completly compatible with all functions but simple voice should be a no brainer.

Uconnect requires version 0.96 or better. Since I have version 2.0 I expect it to work.

CustomShirts>>> Maybe you can get one of the salesman to let you take their phone out to the truck to see if you can get it to work.

RootBeer>>> The technology may change but it should still maintain the standard.
