I totally believe you. It's just this is the first I've heard of any issues with iOS 6 and gmail's IMAP. Like I said, I've been running gmail accounts on all 3 or 4 of my iOS devices from the first time they were supported at all.

NB: IMAP seems to work fine for me in iOS 7. I won't say more because of NDA but...

Well, they already did that! The line I opened yesterday was the only one on the plan and it's called a "share everything" plan. Whereas a 2 gig data plan used to cost $70 with 450 minutes, they decided to "include" unlimited voice and text. Of course, that means the only (hence, cheapest) 2 gig plan is $100.

Cool.... you and I should talk off the record some time. I also support Savant control systems for home and commercial automation. Apple and I have a love hate relationship.

Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

You guys opened up a new window. Paranoia! that w know that Big Brother is watching and Cyber criminals are lurking unsuspecting Dummies not only need know how to link their new ride to other useful devices like cell phones and antitheft devices but also the need for protecting the add on devices with a form of cyber security.

Most computer users have some form of internet security software on their computers as most new computers come from the store with some form of trial software that is pre installed. But how about Smart phones?


With the mention of Jailbreak and Rooting of operating system and the introduction of thousands of "free" apps, we need to know how to not only protect our cell phones with some type of mobile security but also what effect could be lurking from Trojans and Virus that some enterprising criminal could exploit.

The thought of Jailbreaking a Apple EOS and Rooting of the Android platforms makes me wonder about the need for Security software to protect the Operating systems.
So with My new Jeep equipped with my new cell phone will my wife be able to track me to some local bar or brothel? (joke).

I see that Verizon has a security package for Android systems that cost 1.99 per month and Kaspersky Mobile, Norton, and McAfee have protection products but the Apple EOS systems are not mentioned. I don't want to be an unsuspecting crappie that bites at just any dough ball (free APP) that some criminal uses for bait. The verizon Wireless security mentions Android devices only and it uses McAfee as their system which I personally to find to be lacking.

With the mobile carriers trying to maximize profits and our dependence in computer use and the effect of methods that software engineers are trying to use to improve their systems, It is a wonder that Uconnect can keep their systems operational.

Are we destined to be forced to hire a Guardiano as prosperous people do in Mexico to keep muggers from tracking us down or cyber crooks from inserting exploits?


As a teenager we would do pranks on others like taking the rotors out of the distributer. It scares me to think a Hacker could maybe lock me out or disable the vehicle in the back country. (How's that for paranoia?)

Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

I don't disagree with your theory entirely... however Generally the professional virus business has turned away from retribution and is focused on profits.

It is part of the reason why MAC Viruses are still fairly rare. If you are going to write something that will make you money than you will not attack the smallest population (you now look at a certain cell plus Jeep owners)

To completely calm your fears though... the UConnect system is autonomous from the vehicle modules that control the vehicle functions. When the vehicle arrives from the factory the UConnect system is completely disabled and so are all of the fancy functions it does. The vehicle of course doesnt care so it starts and runs normally, the only items that are disabled are the radio, passive and keyless entry as well as advanced climate items like heated seats etc. So really all a hacker could do if they were to waste there time on this is make it so you can't listen to your radio or use your heated seats (HVAC still works in a general fashion so you won't freeze to death).

The vehicle functions need to be separate for good reason. It is why sometimes people are confusing a UConnect software update with a certain vehicle function when frankly all UConnect does is "talk" to the other modules in the car.

But interesting theory none the less.

My post was sort of a fun thing to do. I know there are at least 10 Mobile security software applications out there to purchase. Personally, I use Kaspersky IS on home computer and I note that KAS mobile only protects Android devices. Verizon provides McAfee for about $2.00 a month, but I don't like Mc. Most Antivirus software cautions that one must remove all traces of other AVP before installing their product and i am wondering if Verison in their tinkering with the OS causes problems. Since UCONNECT appears to work on Note 2 phones that have been rooted and appears to have problems with nonrooted phones, It leads me to confirm my theory that it is the cell carriers and not UCONNECT are causing the problems.

I hope we can compile enough information that will allow the Uconnect people to promptly publish an up to date compatiality chart and to make improvements to their wizzard.

The note 2 problems are carrier specific, Scott (Founder) is running a Note 2 in his SRT with 13.15.4 with no issues. There is definitely something in the carrier tweak that is negatively affecting the note 2.

Also not to be negative, but good luck on getting Chrysler to update that list . It took them a month to get the UConnect Update out to the dealers and that was actually kinda important.

Thank you for the info........Looks like my 65+ plan is taking wings. Maybe, I am glad it has expired and I am off the hook.......search .....search....hunt...hunt
You are correct about Verizon limiting their plan and jumping the price by $30 in order to use their new phones by free WIFI.

But here's my info for others to use.

Radio - UConnect 430N
Cell Phone - Samsung Galaxy S4 (Sprint) SPH-L720
Android Version 4.2.2

I have Bluetooth connection, phone book download, AND now it will read incoming SMS/text messages (apparently send also, but I haven't tried that yet). It takes a couple minutes after the text message arrives for the system to acknowledge it.

My previous cell phone was a Samsung Nexus S 4G. Bluetooth and phone book download worked fine, but the SMS/text message feature did not.
Ack! This thread is all over the place . This post was the most informative to me.

Anyhow, my details are as follows:

2014 JGC Limited with 8A4 system (nav upgraded)
software version: 13.15.4

Phone: iPhone 5
software: 6.1.4
Carrier: AT&T

To get things to work, first I had to pair the phone with the unconnect, which is easy enough. Then to get the phonebook and texts to work I had to select the uconnect device tab under the Bluetooth menu and turn these two features on. The "show notifications" on/off toggle is what makes the texts work.

No problems streaming music, including using apps like Pandora or Slacker, No problem with the phonebook porting over, though some people's numbers show up twice for some reason? As fort he texts, the system will only receive texts with my iPhone. It does not send them, but as another posted in here, you can activate Siri from the phone itself and she comes on over the stereo, which seems to work OK. I do hope that with future iOS/Uconnect updates that the iPhone will be able to reply to texts via the Uconnect.

I would be interested to know if there are any phones out there that are fully compatible with ALL features to include free form text replies?

Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

Thanks for your post, Glad to hear that you have found a workaround to use Siri. By using Pandora and Slacker is it advisable to have a unlimited data plan? How much time per day do you spend in your new ride?
BTY...It is ok for this thread to go hither and yon.

Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

Just a little cross posting.... UConnect 13.19.0 should be available this week.

Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

I wanted to report back my results on my ATT Note2 after further testing. As I stated before I am running a developer ROM Jedi that is a 4.1.2 touchwiz based ROM. I have not had any issues with the phone disconnecting during calls. The phonebook and text functions all seem to work as well. After further testing the music streaming on a longer drive, it did eventually drop out for a short period after playing for 10 mins or so. It did it a couple of times during the drive of 45 mins.

I am wondering if this may be something specific to the 4.1.2 android devices. We have seen posts from people running 4.2 (non touchwiz based) that did not have any issues with the music streaming.
