Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (Verizon) text messages with uconnect
Ha. Ha. Yes, I know about the recall and, no, I'm not worried about my phone being one of the "lucky" few that actually have problems (32 out of 2.5 million, all in China and Korea). I'm watching to see how Verizon decides to handle this. In the meantime, I'm not throwing my phone, leaving on my dash in the sun, or charging while playing high drain games just to be on the safe side. I'm also using only the charger that came with the phone, since some have reported it was third party USB-C chargers that caused the trouble.
If you are all satisfied with your hee-haws, the solution is as follows:
1. Switch from the Verizon "Messages+" messaging app to the default android messages app.
2. Make sure all your notifications are turned on, etc.
3. From the uconnect system, delete the device from the phone settings.
4. Pair the phone again.
5. If you didn't previously, wait around for each of the permissions prompts to show up on the phone and allow each. It takes a few minutes. I had already done this on the first pairing so it didn't ask me again. If you hadn't and you still have trouble after this, unpair and repair once more after allowing the permissions on your phone.
