iPhone 4 HELP
Just got the iphone 4... and it will not connect. UConnect says it's not compatible... but Uconnect's own website says it is. My dealership says I need some passcode from Apple... Verizon doesn't know what the heck is going on and neither does Apple.

Does anyone know anything??

I have the 430 (RBZ)... no nav. Anyone had any luck pairing? Thx.

Apple blocks a lot of stuff from pairing with their devices. You could Jailbreak your iPhone 4, like myself, and then try 3rd party underground application that would help.

Re: iPhone 4 HELP
It may be that since my iphone is brand new and has the latest (4.2.6) software, that's the problem...

Mine and my wife's iPhone 4's pair perfectly with the 430N but since the pairing is through uConnect, which I think is the same on both models, it should pair fine. It doesn't need to be jailbroken to pair for headset use, you just need to enable bluetooth and make sure it's discoverable. No different than pairing a bluetooth headset.

Apple uses a nonstandard Bluetooth implementation in the iPhone 4. There have been software updates to both the RER and RHB to establish compatibility. I don't know what is available for the RBZ.

Re: iPhone 4 HELP
iphone 4 from verizon has not been tested w/ 430 RBZ.
iphone 4 on ATT has been tested, but its interactions vary with which radio you have.
Unless Uconnect is planning on testing and making software changes (doubtful?)
I would say you are sol.... which is pretty lame.

Re: iPhone 4 HELP
Not SOL. Why.......? Because there plently of underground software that will allow you to pair with anything. I'll do research later and give you info. It's worth a try because it works with other stuff.

Default Bluetooth password is "0000". that could be the password they are talking about.

Re: iPhone 4 HELP
You should make sure you have the latest iOS on your iPhone 4 via iTunes first. Then simply pair it with the RHR. Just that simple. If I recall correctly, just hit the phone voice command button on the steering wheel and say phone pairing.

Have you ever paired your iPhone with anything Bluetooth before? It is simple, but you also need to have Bluetooth ON in your iPhone settings. Then once you start the pairing you pick a 4 digit code to pair. Very simple and works great.

Re: iPhone 4 HELP
Ok. Just did some research and found that the problem isn't the iPhone 4. The problem is the MyGig. Make sure your MyGig is on the latest software version. My other suggestion is to go to a dealership and test your iPhone in other WK2's with Uconnect.

The Bluetooth function in your MyGig HU could be bad and I wouldn't be surprised if it is. I found on a forum that someone with a new vehicle had to replace their MyGig HU and the problem was solved.

Others were able to solve the issue by updating the MyGig HU to the latest software.

The iPhone 4 isn't the issue. do have the Verizon iPhone 4 which has different hardware. I would suggest researching to see if others with the Verizon iPhone 4 are able to pair with Uconnect.

If others with Verizon's iPhone 4 are able to connect and you've tried everything but they fail, I would suggest replacing the MyGig HU. Why not? You paid for it and it's suppose to work but it isn't. It's worth a try because others have been able solve this issue by replacing it.

I'm sure it would be covered under warranty.
