UConnect 730N (RHR) SMS Texting

I see that there were some old threads about this, but current status is pretty vague. DOES anyone have one that is actually working for texts? The UConnect site lists very FEW phones as functional and those seem to be only one or two Apple and Blackberry phones. Jeep says that UConnect is working on the issue. Hasn't this been an issue since Day 1 for this unit? What do we know? Has any update worked? Does anyone have a Verizon phone receiving/sending texts via UConnect? How about a Galaxy S3 in particular?

Re: UConnect 730N (RHR) SMS Texting

This topic is going to get moved to the Audio/Visual/Navigation section, but I'll answer before it does. You pretty much know everything there is to know: SMS was supposed to be a feature of the RHR, it was supposed to be added in a future update, it never was, no one knows if it ever will, and I can confirm that it doesn't work with the Galaxy S3.

Re: UConnect 730N (RHR) SMS Texting

I text with my Iphone 4S and the 730N occasionally - but I use Siri to read the messages - or else I have her compose the text message to send. Works like a charm.
Otherwise I have never tried texting through the 730N any other way. Hands free works for me!

Re: UConnect 730N (RHR) SMS Texting

It does work with the galaxy s3. I know this because I have an S3. You can search for my thread on how to turn this feature off because it is so annoying. I get a lot of texts, and every time one came in, it would interrupt what ever I was listening to and said something like" no number available, to read SMS push unconnect button to read..etc". It may be cool if you don't receive a lot of messages, but if you get multiple, it gets very annoying.

I turned mine off. Btw, mine is in a 2013 GC.

And you have the 730N (not the 430N)?

Re: UConnect 730N (RHR) SMS Texting

You've got the 430N. If you look in the lower right corner of the radio you'll see a small 3-letter code printed in white. In your case it'll be RHB.

Re: UConnect 730N (RHR) SMS Texting

This horse isn't dead enough to satisfy me. Uconnect customer service was pretty obnoxious about this subject. The gist of their comments is that the text messaging on the 730N works with most phones, just not mine. After some searching, they were able to give me one Blackberry example. Since I wanted to be fair, I went through the procedures on ucconectphone.com and came up with the following list of phones that they say DO work for texting with the 730N RHR. Note that there appears to be exactly ONE Android phone, IF that is what Dell is running on the Aero. More interestingly, only OLD S/W versions of any Blackberry or Iphone seem to work based on this info. Now, if they just had not tested newer versions, that might be fine that they weren't shown.
