As I've mentioned before, we've still got it better than the poor souls stuck using the Ford Sync system. Using it in my Mustang was maddening.

If you want a chuckle check out this comparability chart and see which phones worked with the radio's text messaging feature. They made such a big deal out of that feature and only a handful of phones (most of which nobody who was geeky enough to pay for the Sync option would be caught dead owning) worked with it. The Motorola Razr? Guess that would be handy if you hit 88 mph and went back in time to 2004. They also went on and on about how updatable the system was and how they could add apps. In 3 years of ownership there was 1 update (bug fixes) and no features/apps added. Gosh I hope Chrysler doesn't do the same!

So while I have a few choice words about Uconnect I must admit that it is worlds better than that whole Sync fiasco.

I called uconnect after not being able to send text. I have an iphone 5.
They told me it was a software thing and we would get a message across the 8.4 screen when it is time to update and that would fix the problem.

I have the Samsubng Galaxy S3 and I can send and receive with out any issues at all unless, if I am driving it will not allow texting via the touch pad however voice sort of works but misses alot of the words.

My S3 seems to not like to stay connected as well. Although I have not set up the messaging, I am only talking about playing music.
