Default uconnect not working correctly

Hello fellow ram owners,
My ram has the RES radio. I have no idea was uconnect version I have, but here's the problem. I pair my cellphone (Samsung) up to the uconnect and it works fine for about a day or two. When my wife calls the music will turn off and the radio says incoming call like it suppose to. After a day or two my wife will call and nothing will happen. I only can receive the call using my cellphone. I then will have to pair the cellphone to the radio again. Has anyone else had this problem?

does your RES radio have the phone hard key ?
if it does that is the RES 130s

the one without the phone hard key is the RES 130

they use different Uconnect modules, uconnect was just an after thought on the one without the hard key

the RES 130s uses the same external Uconnect module as the REN, RBZ, & RHB, , if i recall correctly
The RER & RHR both have an internal Uconnect module

I know this doesn't help with your intermittent uconnect issue, but it gives you a bit of background

your issue MAY be a setting on your phone, i don't know much about smart phones & the settings

Yes it has the phone hard key, so it must be the 130s. The phone is a regular phone. My wife (boss) will not allow me to get a smart one. Thanks for the information.

I don't have a Samsung but it sounds like a phone problem. I had a phone with a aftermarket radio with almost the same problem. It was a setting in my phone. Do you have the auto Bluetooth connection on under the settings? If its off it may not pair with the radio everytime. Or maybe your Bluetooth goes into a power saving mode. Check your owners manual for your phone. I hope that helps.

I too am have many issues with my uconnect. I have the RHR and an iPhone 5s. Sometimes calls wont go thru, sometimes the music won't go thru, and sometimes it freezes the radio to the point I have to shut the truck off and let it sit for 5-10 min.

Try rebooting the phone by removing the battery for a couple minutes and then reinsert it. Give this a shot.
Also when this issue occurs, if you press the Uconnect phone button, what happens?
