I have the regular S7, and I use the smart lock feature. Works fine - my text messages come in with no issues.

I'd say unpair completely and re-pair if you haven't already. Also, make sure you agree to the prompts on the phone when it says uconnect is asking permission to access your phone book and messages.

Re: Pairing Uconnect and S7 Edge issues

Ok thx ill try that. Aside from smart lock do u use finger print or pattern to lock ur device. What ive read about smart lock is i have to unlock my phone and after thst it should work. Ill try it when i get a chance.

Re: Pairing Uconnect and S7 Edge issues

Cool. Its crazy cause its a hit n miss for me. Sometimes they come in and sometimes they dont. I noticed when they do its when the phone is active and not locked but when it is locked they dont come in. Most of the time im using the BT for audio (pandora) and txt dont display during that time.

Idk

Make sure notifications are turned on for texting. Further, it's possible you may have to enable lock screen notifications to allow it to work when locked.

Re: Pairing Uconnect and S7 Edge issues

Thanks NetworkTV...

I figured it out. So i wasnt really understanding what was going on until i browsed android forums and it appears my issue was even though my phone was paired, smart lock enabled and permissions granted to Bluetooth to unlock phone when connected was somewhere or somehow during the intial pair of my s7e and the uconnect was not pairing correctly. Why i don't know but a plain reset of app preferences did the job! Didn't even have to unpair from the uconnect.

What that did was reset all app preferences and what happened now i get asked again for all apps to enable permissions. Which is ok cause its just a one time deal. Now i'm able to get text message alerts on the uconnect without unlocking my phone soon as i get in and drive. In case anyone has that issue remember go to settings > app manager > hit more > reset app preferences.
