You can read my comment I posted (stupidly) in the UConnect update thread.
When I was in the Verizon store I was told I needed a $121.00 protection and car connect kit for the I5 and likewise for the Sammy. So when I got home I went to WWW.Monoprice.com
where I have bought a lot of stuff and found they had a S4 case for $3.00.
. We may want to discuss protection. It is good that the area under the Uconnect system is large to accept just about any cell phone except my first one that I bought in 1987 that weighed about 10 lbs and as I recall cost over 1K.
The high cost of the cells (no matter where they are paid for up front, or if part of a 2 year contract and discounted) makes them an object that all will want to protect.
As I am trying to obtain information about how to lower the cost of using our Uconnect systems I found a site that discussed Jailbreaking the Apple I5.
since I did not know about these functions or what Rooting was I am finding that the carriers are possibly selling devices that are enough to drive their customers bonkers and do the same thing with the engineers at Uconnect that are attempting to keep our Jeeps compatible. Jailbreaking and rooting may be desirable features but for the non techie's who want to buy something off the shelf and not be S***wed by their cell phone carriers, guidance is needed. Comments please
