My truck doesn't always get my texts, but it always knows when I get a call. I think it just takes a while to recognize that the phone is there sometimes. It also cannot read texts in rapid succession.

you have to go into your bluetooth settings. I found how to do it somewhere on here... I have an iPhone 5s, and its in settings-bluetooth-uconnect-show notifications. I think thats how its done.

From the Uconnect site:

"To enable text messaging for iPhones
- On the phone, go to Settings > Bluetooth. Press the arrow to the right of the radio name you are connected to (Uconnect by default) and turn “Show Notifications” on.
- Text messages on the handset will not download to the vehicle system after connection, but will update as new messages are received. Again after reconnection they will not download.
- If new messages received are not indicated on the vehicle system, please disconnect and reconnect the handset in order for it to begin working"

If I remember correctly, the phone must be actively paired to the radio for the option to show up on the phone.

So I was right! I went into my own phone to double check. So there you go!

I never even knew I had the option of having my texts read to me by the weird lady in my dash until I stumbled upon the thread.

Cool feature! Now if I could reply with voice... Having said that, the voice recognition in these things sucks. Siri works waaaaay better..

I have the 8.4A radio and I can send texts via the "VR" button on the steering wheel. Just press the button. Say "Send message to Jane Doe". It will ask you for the unique message, or you can say "List" and it will give you the 18 preset messages to choose from.

I have an android phone, Samsung Galaxy S4.

The 8.4a (RA3) does speech-to-text as well. I used it a few times in my truck. Worked OK. You have to maintain a uconnect access subscription though since it transcribes your voice on their server and sends back to your truck.
