Heres a pic of the screen under the uconnect bluetooth settings.


I have tried everything! I even tried a friends iphone 5s with the same software. I'm almost starting to think its the 8.4 in the truck thats causing the issues. But I wont be able to make the trip to the dealer for a week or so...

If I recall correctly, you need to have the iPhone and radio Bluetooth connection active (radio turned on and actively linked to the iPhone) for the option to appear. Otherwise you are just looking at the definition of the Bluetooth connection on the iPhone when the connection is not actively paired and communicating to the truck's radio.

this screenshot was taken when I was in the truck at a stoplight. Im not overly concerned about having my texts read to me, but I would like my contacts loaded so I can call people without having to dial. thats all I really care about.

My contacts are available on the 8.4 and I don't recall doing anything special. They sync'ed automatically once I had made the Bluetooth connection.

Concerning text messages, did you verify that on the iPhone, under settings, notification center, under "Access on lock screen", "notification view" is turned on,

AND

further down in "Notification Center", select Messages, and verify alerts turned on, badge app icon turned on, show in notification center turned on, show on lock screen turned on, and show preview turned on.

i have all the necessary options selected. Everything is as it was when it was working.

HOWEVER!! I HAVE AN UPDATE!

its fixed! I found some info on getting into the secret engineering menu on the screen and did a factory restore on the 8.4. First I forgot my phone from the truck, and truck from the phone, then restored the uconnect. Once it rebooted, it looked waaaay different... It had the SRT badge in the background, and all the buttons looked different. I verified that the newest update (14.05.3) was installed) So i brought a usb out with me that has the newest software on it and reinstalled the new software, even though it was already loaded. after updating, i re-paired my phone, and after about 2 mins, it was all working perfectly! all my contacts downloaded! At first I didnt have the "show notifications" option, so I turned the truck off, opened the door, and waited for power to the truck to shut off, then shut the door, turned the truck back on, and there it was! So its all working perfectly again!!! I'm so pumped that I got it working... what a great start to my day!
