you can get siri to respond using the voice button? not trying to be purposely obtuse but if so can you give a few more detailed steps on how to do it?

thanks!

Yeah I tried that method over and over again with no luck. I'm running the iOS 9.3, so maybe that has something to do with it.

Re: Text Mesaging

I have had my GC for 2 years and I have just discovered that it has it own signature. When you use UConnect to reply to a text message it will add the signature:

Sent by my Jeep

I am not trying to generate revenue for the telcos but I am sure many of you will now try this.

A few weeks since you posted this jorsr, but a multi-media text will not display on Uconnect. ie: if someone has sent a pic through to your phone. It will alert you but not display.

What kind of phone do you have?

I have a 2015 High Altitude, and an iPhone 5c running iOs 9.2 and cant reply to texts. I have never used Siri.

I have a Samsung/Android phone. The texting is all operated via the Bluetooth link to the phone. My MY14 may have have a different Uconnect software version than later models. Some of us also accidentally ended up with DAB radio activated

There also may be some options variation with export models. Mine only allows you to do an automated response to a text when driving. This can also be actioned via voice commands. Here is the list:

Re: Text Mesaging

if you are using iPhone and want to receive texts, you have to disable iMessage and use the phone carrier SMS. only way you can receive and send text from the jeep.
