The rub probably comes from earlier versions of the Apple I phones that were very expensive shattered fobbles of Gorilla glass and the latest versions are more durable
They are all better but they still need cases. My RAZR HD has held up pretty good bit hey some of these devices are around $600.00 so who wouldn't take care of them right?

You can read my comment I posted (stupidly) in the UConnect update thread.

Thanks for your report, Since you are using the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD can you tell the forum if the phone has the S Voice system included? I note that Apple has the Siri voice recognition system and Samsung S4 is competing with the S4. When looking at the spec's on the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD and the Motorola Droid Razr HD, the S Voice system is not mentioned.

For the RAZR Comment.... we are using "Google Now" and the voice recognition that way. It won't tell me where to hide the bodies like siri does though (in a swamp). Lol.

It is a message access protocol issue. I will get into this more soon. Just buried in testing at the moment.

Yes, I read it it was a very informative post. Does your RAZR HD have the S Voice system that compete with the Apple Sari system?

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.
http://www.howtojailbreakiphone5s.com/
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

Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

This forum is so good as one topic has lead to another and I am finding out things that I did not know existed. The Uconnect pairing problems and the outdated compatibility charts pointed for the need for information that would enable all of the Jeep enthusiast to experience the best results with their new equipment. I have tried to follow some of the links to terms that were previously unknown to me and now that I have heard them may be helpful to other Jeep forum newbee's. I just heard the terms Jailbreak, Rooting, and Bricked so not knowing I googled the terms and found:
http://www.androidpolice.com/2010/04...android-phone/

http://www.howtojailbreakiphone5s.com/

These sites speak to the subject of how the cell phone carriers and manufacturers restrict the use of devices that customer purchase in order to maximize, and redirect their usage to increase profitability. I suspect that most of us simply buy something off the shelf and expect it to work and are never really told what may be the most beneficial to us. The functions of jailbreaking and Rooting seem to be very interesting and would welcome discussion.

A lot of my partners in crime run rooted and jail broke devices. I tried with the iPhone 5 I have and got frustrated and gave up. I should likely try again. The free software is often better.

It is "MAP" it is more a cell phone issue that it is a UConnect issue

The cell phone software actually has some catching up to do here. It works OK with some carriers and not others which means the software tweaks of those carriers is not in line with the generally accepted norm for Message Access Protocol (MAP). It appears a number of the roots work better with this.
