Anyone know how use the hands free texting with the 430N? I have an iPhone 4 and haven't been able to figure it out. Thanks!

I have the 430 w/o Nav and SMS doesn't work. It could be my iphone though. I hit the uconnect button and say messaging. This gets you to the SMS menu.

I don't think the 730N RER supports voice texting. The 430N RHB does and the 730N RHR is supposed to (from what I last saw), but I don't think the RER will.

What exactly does this feature do? Does it do voice dictation or just let you choose from a list of predetermined text responses?

it has pre-programmed responses but you can do text to speech. It also can read your incoming sms. However, i have an htc evo 4g. It does not seem to be compatible w the sms feature

I tried it with the Samsung Eternity. It will read out loud the incoming message, but it also read any older messages on the inbox as well. I can get to the SMS menu using voice commands but it will not successfully send the message. Frustrating! Great idea if it would work!

Do you have to set something up in order for it to read the messages? All I've done so far is pair my iphone via bluetooth.

Sorry for jumping in late... but for some stupid reason Apple has decided to not implement any SMS capabilities in the bluetooth software on the iPhones. So even if your radio can do it, the iPhone cannot.

I'm not sure what phones can, to be honest... I don't think Android (pre 2.3) can, either.

I think the 'dumb' NOKIA phones can...

This document lists the current compatibility test results... for the 430N (RHB), seems not many phones support the SMS over Bluetooth. Scroll down to the correct radio, then look through the tables. The rightmost column in the blue group of cells is "Text Messaging (SMS)".

With my 430N and Droid Pro I can receive SMS text messages and the 430N will read them out to me. I can also send the preloaded text messages.
