Default SMS/Texts on MyGig

Anyone been able to get this to work? I haven't. My wife works at a dealership and none of the techs or other customers have she has talked to.

I have an IPhone 3G, works great for calls and caller ID and all that. No issues there. But when connected, Mygig silences my incoming sms notification and will not do anything with that Mygig option. What the heck?!

Anyone got it to work? What type of phone? And how...?

Thanks in advance!

I've tried sending an receiving SMS with my BB 8900 and it won't work. I think I read somewhere in a thread last night that it only works with a couple of models of 'Motorola' phones? I can compose an SMS but it fails when trying to send it.

Found the comment, see member 2011RAM comment regarding Motorola. Might be good idea to check with him.

You can't use the SMS features though, because it only works with two types of Motorola phones, go figure...

Thanks for the post. That sucks! What good is it if it only works with 2 kinds of phones?! lol. Chrysler dropped the ball there. Hopefully upgrade comes out for it to make it more available

I think they did that as a safety concern. You arn't supposed to be driving and texting where I am it is against the law. I still do but ya its the law hahha. My phone works with SMS and the Uconnect system. I have a blackberry but it is the one with the Mike system in it, has a 2 way radio built in with the phone. I have no problems with it, except that the 2 way Mike radio doesnt work through the speakers and mic, I have to turn the thing off to use it.

the SMS feature is supposed to be VOICE-> Text and vice versa. That eliminates driver interaction (button pushing). Might not work that way but it is intended to.

my droid x works for sms, but it took me forever to get it going, and the dealer was absolutely no help. i ended up having to do a master reset on the phone, which in turn f-ed up up all the pictures/music on my memory card. long story short it was way too much trouble for a feature that i dont really find that handy anyhow
