Default Messaging the 8.4A

Hey there hope this is not a repeat with the question but I was told that we can respond to text messages with the radio but when im in the phone app I will call it the message button doesn't work and I cant hear if a text comes in unless Im using the Bluetooth for the music. does anyone know if its the phone or was it another lie from the dealership.

Im using the Iphone 4S if that helps

Thanks

On your iPhone go to Settings > Bluetooth > uConnect > Turn on Show Notifications.

This is what i did and now I can receive messages but cannot send. Before I changed this setting on my phone the message button on the radio was greyed out

.i have the iPhone 4

I can receive them but can't reply texts with the stereo

Also when I changed the setting on my phone it didn't work instantly .i parked the truck went to lunch and it worked when I restarted the truck

There is a recent thread about this same thing. I did some google searching and it looks like it's actually a problem with the iPhone and not Uconnect. There are SYNC users having similar problems with the iPhone. The problems seem to be with sending text messages so hopefully what gto19 posted will help you in receiving them.

Supposedly Apple released an update for the iPhone to fix some of the text message issues with regards to them working via bluetooth. Make sure you have the latest version of iOS.

I have the iPhone 4 and cannot send text messages through Uconnect. I can only receive. I've read that people with the iPhone 5 are having the same issue. I dont' have a newer Android phone to test with.

You're in the US. Us Canadians have a neutered version of the UConnect. How neutered still seems to be up for debate. Receiving text messages is definitely possible, but whether we can send them or not seems to be up for debate, and if we can send them, is it only the pre-defined list or can we use the voice recognition feature to send them? I haven't heard a definite answer one way or another.

I know that I can't send text messages with my iPhone 4 or my girlfriends Samsung Galaxy S Android phone.

When I was messing around with the uconnect web site I cam across something that showed you all the features and your phone. The iPhone was one of the very few that didn't have the text messaging option. All the others did.

I have a Samsung GS3 and mine only notifies and read me texts if I am in the "player" tab listening to my ipod or in the "uconnect" tab. As for responding through the radio....that has yet to work properly. It gives me the option to reply and says to "speak your message" but is fails to understand every single time. Luckily the GS3 has its own speech-to-text (and a good one at that) I use now.

That link seems to apply to Canada, but our radios are neutered. We don't have some of the features you guys do even if our radio and phone are in fact capable of it
