tether cell phone's internet to U-Connect?

Has anyone heard of a way to tether one's own cell phone to the U-connect radio for internet? It would be nice if I could use the ATT plan I'm already paying for instead of having to fork out more money for FCA's Sprint plan.

I'm curious what you're looking to do on the radio that requires internet. To my knowledge, the WiFi option that FCA offers is to allow the vehicle to become a hotspot, which you could likely do from your mobile device.

I would hope to use my phone's email, navigation, and anything that I can do on my phone, but use the radio screen (u-connect screen) for a larger screen than my phone has. Also, it's mounted in the dash, so I wouldn't need to fumble with the phone.

That would be Android/IPhone system that is coming out in some of the newer cars now. Best we can do tie some of our music apps in.

The answer is no. Jeep only allows a couple of kinda dumb and useless apps through your phone. Other than that - nope.
