Default iPhone 4 and uConnect not playing nice

o.k. lovin' my 2007 Ram 1500 5.7 auto 4x4, Laramie package, but tried several times to pair up my 1 1/2 month old iPhone 4 32gb with no luck.
It seems, from searching the 'net, this is a common issue, anyone find the leprechaun with the magic chant and willing to share the info?
I live in Canada, in the event that the U.S. models are different.
Best of the Holiday Season to everyone, and bless ALL the troops who are fighting so we can enjoy what we so easily take for granted!!!

check out the latest update for your phone, Chrysler reads that some problems still occur using Uconnect, a jeep forum seems to be working on it harder than Uconnect or the Apple people, its the JK site,
http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy&h...41562a61b59af3

on some Apple products, a temporary fix was to reduce your phones address book to 12 or less & it worked for some people

another solution was to buy a FM integration harness

here is a list put out by Dodge
http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/pdf/d..._document2.pdf

Ipod is at the very bottom of the list


i don't know the answer, just putting some things out that i read

thanx for responding guys, my iPhone is up to date. in comparing the provided list, because iPod and not iPhone is specified, I'm thinking there is still a step I'm not doing, that or there's an issue being worked on. I tried calling the number, but was put on hold and had to get back to work.
as they say, "the plot thickens...."

I have the iphone 4 and I have a ton of contacts in the phone but all I did was pair the phone. I just followed the voice commands that the truck gave me. Can you see Uconnect listed before you click on it to pair? Do you get to the part where you put the 4 digit code in the phone? (settings, general, bluetooth)?

Default Mine works(sometimes)... think this is more of a UConnect issue:

The truck is finicky with the Bluetooth in general, I had little glitches with my Blackberry Bold9000 as well. One thing I learned is you have to let the NAB load before you can try to make a call... that takes a few min on mine every time I pair/drive somewhere due to the 300 or so contacts I have. No way to turn this off on UConnect that I've found. The iPhone4 works well when it wants to, which is about every other time in my 8mos of owning my truck. I really wish Dodge would update the MyGig/UConnect to put a decent stack on it.

For comparisons - the wife's Nissan Maxima works great with the Bold and iPhone4, not a single issue... I rarely take the phone out of my pocket in her car its so dependable. Not so in the truck, constantly having to dial/re-dial/hang-up etc... Dodge could learn a thing or two in this space.
