Re: Text msg on screen from iPhone? Only 1 time?

The iPhone text feature is unreliable and sporadic. I eventually got the button to "un-Gray" and I sometime get a text. I tried an Android and it instantly showed a list of messages already received. IPhone will only show a message that arrives after being connected. I'm thinking of going android. Also my iPhone won't play music by usb. Only Bluetooth works.
Very sad for iPhone. Lovers. Is iPhone ever going to work with uconnect.

I have just gone back to iPhone, the text thing is no big issue for me as I only need to see what has come in at the time, all my music is on a USB stick in the car so that works well and is always connected. If u go android u will regret it, I missed so much stuff that I could do on the iPhone.

Re: Text msg on screen from iPhone? Only 1 time?

Well i'm new here...with iPhone and uconnect that is.

I previously had an android and was able to VC text, receive messages and even view my messages. Oh and i used to be able to see the list of old messages as well as when they came in. Now with the iPhone 6 Plus i cannot view messages, view when they come in or use the VC to send a txt.

I'm a bit confused cause the 1st day i used it with the uconnect if i remember correctly was able to make a call via the VC. Yesterday on my way home i tried this while using the Uconnect Access app and playing Pandora i was not able to make a call via VC and i was not able to view my phone contacts in the uconnect system. I was only able to manually dial a number. Sometime last night i did hit the "i" icon within the bluetooth setting for the uconnect and turned on the receive notifications on my phone and this morning i was still not able to view my phonebook until i turned the notifications option off within the bluetooth. That actually kinda sucks considering i had no issues with my previous android.

Has anyone experianced this? Not being able to view phonebook/phone contacts on the uconnect screen while using Uconnect Access app?

Re: Text msg on screen from iPhone? Only 1 time?

I think most people have reliability issues with iPhones.
My question is "Why?" What is the reason that Apple and uconnect don't work together? Is one of the companies refusing to cooperate? Both systems have a rather large user base.

I would also like to know why the export models are stripped of all the features of uconnect. We Australians, and I presume all others with the export models, do not have uConnect soft button. Therefore no pandora etc.

I am pretty sure it is a 32 but I will have to check. I know we have over 400 songs on it.

Re: Text msg on screen from iPhone? Only 1 time?

My iPhone (iOS 6.1.3) shows incoming texts when these conditions are met:
1. Device must be connected via Bluetooth (doesn't need to be streaming music)
2. Notifications must be turned on in iPhone's bluetooth settings
3. iPhone must be locked
4. Incoming message is not a group message
5. Incoming message does not have pictures, videos, or emojis

Maybe this could work for the newer iPhone users?

Re: Text msg on screen from iPhone? Only 1 time?

After I updated to 8.4 I now am able to receive messages of course after I turn on the notifications in Bluetooth setting of my iPhone.

Sure go to settings Bluetooth

Then click the blue i in a circle (info) to the right of uconnect
