I am trying to see what benefit it would be to have the Uconnect WIFI service as it is a pay service and from what I understand it uses public free WIFI hotspot to connect????. If the Razr has the WIFI connectivity to save on data plan usage it may be a good opton. This info probably deserves it's own thread about the Pro's and Con's of different Cells, Carriers, equipment and Uconnect.

Greatttt another thread idea

Actually you are correct. As I am a roadwarrier (hence the need for Diesel) I always am throwing my phone on a shelf up high and setting up mobile hotspot. When I am camping I setup my cell booster kit so I can do the same and stay connected. One thing I can say about the RAZR (probably because of Motorola's experience) the cell radio in this thing is awesome. I can do entire calls on 1 bar and I get reception when other users on the same carrier have nothing.

Maybe when the UConnect stuff slows down a little we can talk about that stuff more. Or maybe now...? Go start another thread

Do you guys notice with your messaging portion of Bluetooth that sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't, in regard to hearing and viewing text messages on the UConnect? Sometimes it's grayed out and sometimes it actually notified me of a text and others not. I had hoped I'd be free of gremlins.

Gremlins are good ask bill_de.... other than that I haven't really worked with that much yet. As you are running 13.15.4 there will be an update fairly soon. Before we think this is an issue though I should let other users chime in on this.

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

Updated my Verizon Galaxy note II to latest update/rom I run Beans ROM rooted phone. Everything is working great now No more disconnecting text messages use to not come through all the time seems to have fix that also. Like I said there's known Bluetooth bugs in android 4.1 so if your phone has an update or it will soon that will probably fix the disconnecting. Played with it for about an hour will see if it keeps working before update it would disconnect soon as it connect at least 3 or 4 times.

Thanks Geox. That is great info.

I don't have the resources to be loading all kinds of phones with software on top of the testing I do in my free time so this is a huge help and identifies this a a phone software issue. Used to have some friends at Google founding 50 but not so much any more so if anyone has the spare time make sure to post this in an Android forum where it might get noticed.

Mind posting a link to the ROM at XDA or wherever you got it? I'm interested in testing this myself.

Thanks!

Naturally, this ROM isn't available to AT&T Note 2 owners...

Let me check if there's a port. If not and my testing on my road trip goes good I'll see if we can get it ported over.

Nope no port atm. Have you tried clean ROM?? For At&t it's based on 4.1.2 I'll make sure to report back tomorrow night.
