Anyone out there outside of their trial period and using the via mobile for Pandora?
I'm past the 6 month trial period. I called Uconnect customer service the day the Via Mobile Apps update was released. I could't get them to work with my phone (Samsung Galaxy S4). When I called, I received 3 different answers from 3 different agents as to whether I needed a subscription (Access Advantage) or not to be able to use the Via Mobile Apps. The first agent told me I needed to pay for the first month only to get the service re-activated. The second agent told me you have to pay for the Access Advantage plan every month to have the apps. Finally, the third agent said that they were free for 5 years. Ultimately, the last agent I spoke with was correct. Free for 5 years from the time your Uconnect is activated when you register.
As for the "using the via mobile for Pandora" question. The answer from me is "no". I would love to, but for some reason, there is a communication issue with my truck and my smartphone. According to Uconnect, my phone is not compatible with the Uconnect system. Funny how everything worked fine before the Via Mobile apps appeared, and all the other bluetooth communications works great (phonebook and contacts syncing, texts read to me, etc). As a result, Uconnect refuses to help me further.
