Steps 2 get sms messages from iphone
 
NOT SURE IF THE STEPS HAVE BEEN POSTED YET BUT HERE ARE THE IMAGES AND WHAT UCONNECT LOOKS LIKE ONCE CONNECTED AND RECEIVED. HOWEVER IT WILL NOT ALLOW REPLY OR FORWARD MESSAGING. BUT IT WILL READ MESSAGE TO YOU AND ALLOW YOU TO PREVIEW SCRIPT.

under settings, click on the bluetooth option. once your device is paired to your vehicle, click on the blue arrow next to the words UCONNECT to open up options.

the SHOW NOTIFICATIONS option will be in the off position. Simply turn the settings on.

once turned on wait for a minute and the word MESSAGING should light up as an option under the phone settings. If messaging does not light up after a minute or two simply shut the vehicle off and then back on to allow all options to reboot at the same time.

this is what you should see once a message has come through on your display screen. i have a 2014 model and when the message comes in, it announces the name of the person who texted me.

Thanks! I just picked up my 2014 GC limited with this system on Saturday. I was bummed when the messaging field was grated out at first, but I had never seen Bluetooth options on the device like that. Followed your tip and got it working. Much appreciated!

This has been posted regularly since the '14s started being delivered at the first of this year, but the occasional repost is useful for those just now receiving their GCs and/or reading the forum.

I posted somewhere that it is compatible but limited-you cannot send out a message. Check the Uconnect website showing what features are enabled.

more than welcome. And I only posted this cause when I was searching for an answer I could not find a clear cut answer on how to do this so I felt for those just joining or researching this topic to post pics and a guide line to making this all work. I learned it on my own and felt others should be able to know this simple info fast n clear

I am unable to connect my iPhone 5s to my 2014 Grand Cherokee. I went into my phone's Bluetooth settings as suggested, and I turned on notifications. I also noticed the "messaging" button which was greyed out, turn on. I clicked on it and it brought me into a new menu I haven't seen before.

However I tried clicking on any option in there and it said "phone not compatible". Still no text messages appearing.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks !

I think for iphones, it will not show existing messages, only new messages that you receive while it is connected. Did you receive any messages after the Message button lit up?
