Is that a problem or just an annoyance for you?

An annoyance I'm sure for not just me, I don't understand why the unit is not customizable so it doesn't have to make any sounds or say anything, for example:
"(Name of your phone) is connected"
"Phone call, press UConnect phone button to answer"
"Phone call completed"
Not to mention the annoying sounds.

Re: iPhone 4S and Siri all work with BT!!

Mine is the RHR it is using the mic built into the car and not the phone. Mine also treats the conversation like a phone call (actually a VM call is what is shown on the screen). That doesn't bother me so much, since it out ways it not working all together.

Nice! I paired my 4S already, but haven't tried Siri yet.

Siri reads texts over my 730N RHR stereo speakers. It also takes dictation, meaning I can send a text by talking into the car's microphone.

Once I hold the "Home" button on the 4S, it activates the bluetooth connection on UConnect and shows up as a "Voicemail" call on the 730 display.

After the initial Siri activation, there is almost no reason to touch the iPhone or talk to it, everything is done via the Jeep's speakers and microphone. You can read and send texts, you can dictate a note, etc.

It is a great leap forward, IMO! When finished, just press the phone button on the steering wheel to deactivate the Siri connection.

Will you be giving instruction on this when my 4s arrives?

I don't think anyone has been able to get SMS messaging to work on the unconnect with any phone.

Siri, works the same way on my 430n. It is very simple. Just hit the home button on the phone and start talking. The integration with the system is seemless.

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.
