Voice Texting $14.99/mo What the...

I noticed my Voice Texting was no longer working.

I figured I had to reset it or reregister or something.

Finally figured it out. It's part of the Remote Access Package that you have to pay $14.99/mo for !!!

The Voice Texting has nothing to do with the "Phone Service" dependent features built into the car.

It's a Bluetooth tether feature.

Soon they will start charging for Bluetooth Tether or a Volume Control on the Steering Wheel.

It's not a critical feature but it came in handy now and then.

I have no temptation what so ever on the rest of the remote features (remote start from your phone etc.).

Such a petty thing to squeak $$$ out of customers for.

It's the not so new business model the corporate world is using, "revenue streams". No one wants to sell you anything anymore, they want to "rent" it to you with a recurring debt on your bank account. Just open the faucet, and you'll get what ever you want, and they'll tether your wallet.

That's incorrect. Voice Texting is using an online speech-to-text engine. Your voice is sent to a speech translation service through the 3G radio, the service converts it to text, then pushes it back to the vehicle over 3G. Without the 3G service this won't work. Google VR works similarly and requires online presence.

While what you are saying is true none of that will work unless your smartphone is connected to Uconnect with a compatible version of bluetooth as mswlogo was stating in his original post.

Though you are correct in your claim, this was not the OP's point. The OP already had a working compatible phone that stopped working because his VText service subscription ended and he was simply unaware it is a cloud based service.

How does the Music Search Voice to Text work then?
Or the Voice activated Calls.

I doubt very much it's using Online Speech to Text.

That's a good point too. It has internet service through your phone.

It is and it does. You apparently haven't used it that much. Sometimes it takes forever, fails or doesn't work. I forgot the error message, but one I've received was along the lines of unable to reach something.

It can, but that's not what is uses.
