Okay, I think I understand the question regarding UConnect and SMS a little better...this is how I understand it...
I don't believe the Jeep's built-in, UConnect voice commands work for SMS on the iPhone; same as before.
However, Siri on the iPhone 4S does work and does send/receive SMS via voice commands, using the Jeep's speakers and microphone. The functionality that Siri provides replaces the need to use the Jeep's UConnect commands.
In other words, SMS messaging now works with voice commands in the Jeep. It just uses Siri on the 4S for the voice recognition and commands and not the UConnect commands outlined in the Jeep's UConnect Owner's Manual.
Again, it works great! You can compose and send SMS text with your voice using the Jeep's microphone, not the iPhone. You can have received SMS text messages read to you over the Jeep's speakers.
Also, Siri doesn't appear as picky as the UConnect voice commands. You don't have to be quite as specific giving commands. The only drawback I see is that you have to initiate the session with the iPhone Home button, instead of the steering wheel phone button.
