Re: uConnect 15.26.1 is buggy; I want to downgrade.

No one pays Sprint directly for any portion of the Uconnect services - it's all through Chrysler. Even if you activate wifi on your Uconnect, you're paying Chrysler - then they pay the Sprint bill.

Re: Jeep survey, Text responses, Uconnect and Apple

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

Per his (her?) post #48, Ltnluv23 has a '15. Not sure why they posted a request for previous version software for their Jeep in a thread about '13 & '14 Uconnect software updates.
