Streaming music runs and sounds great with my 4S and 430 RHB. The only "problem" I've had is that the unit doesn't want to play my iphone when connected via USB in the console. It has no problem reading and playing my iPod, but it just stalls forever "reading device" when I plug the iPhone i.

I work around it by using the front USB port for power and streaming music via BT, but that means I have a cable hanging down on the front of my jeep (my phone rides in a Proclip mount on the dash). The upside to this is that I can still use the phone controls to run apps, navigate playlists, etc., and other things that you either can't do or are slower working through the 430.

Chrysler isn't the only one that SIRI is having problems with, if you look you will see that Ford, GM & others are also having problems.
I'm not sure what your saying here. If SIRI works fine on early 2012 models and has issues with later model radios because the car manufacturers changed their BT address, how is that Apple's fault? or responsibility to get together with the car manufacturers. If anything it should be the other way around. If your making a change to your BT address its your responsibility to provide that information with one of the major smart phone companies that could be using your system, no? In any case, its not a big deal and seems like something that could be fixed with a software update.

The 1st Gen 2012 modules were designed and built off of the 2011 platform, then the 2nd Gen came along. The 2nd Gen modules were being tested and validated with the IPhone 4 and Beta 5.0 SW before it was released to the public. The IPhone 4 with 5.0 passed the testing and was added to the Approved phone list given to Chrysler. The IPhone 4 does not have SIRI, nor was Uconnect told anything about SIRI because it was to be kept secret until the release in October. If Apple worked closer with Chrysler and others to test the product in private to make sure that it was going to work properly when it was released then everybody would be happy. If there was an issue, then the SW Engineers from both sides could get together and form a strategy to make it work instead of after the fact.

The real issue here is that they are not using a BT supported profile to make SIRI work. This was not known how or what Apple was doing until after the release of the phone so neither company had a chance to validate it to work on all modules. What I was told is that one of the Apple team has a 2011 vehicle and they used that to model SIRI. So they played and played until the found a way to make it work. The Uconnect BT stacks are designed by Qualcomm and BT MAC addresses aren't an everyday item that has to be known by the car kit company. So when I contacted Apple about the issue, the said well we used the BT address on the vehicle we tested. This address I was told can change depending on updates or advances made on the stack.
At any rate you could say that it was a problem that Chrysler is responsible for if the problem was only with Chrysler. But it's not, the same problem can be seen with Ford, Gm and others as well.

Just to add to the intel:

1) Bought a 2012 Wrangler with a model 130 radio on March 3rd.

2) Bought new iPhone 4S on March 8th.

3) Siri does not work, as many have described.

4) All other bluetooth functions work, but when the home button on the iPhone is pressed, streaming audio from the phone stops (as if Siri was trying to communicate) but it accept no commands (handset or via the 130).

Disappointing as the hands-free convenience of Siri while driving would be nice.

your vehicle was built after October 12, 2011 most likely. Is this correct? There were some SW enhancements added to 2012 V2 Uconnect system. This SW was written and tested in early 2011 which was before Apple came out with the IPhone 4s. The IPhone 4 was tested with the V2 SW and all was good. Then Apple came out with the IPhone 4s and SW version 5.0 without validating the SW on the Bluetooth car kits which has led to some issues.
Apple is aware of this particular issue with SIRI, Visual Voice mail and memos stored on the phone. These features will work if BT is turned off, but they will not work thru the hands free system.
Now on the other hand, SIRI can be extremely irritating with her sense of humor that she seems to have. Honestly, she can only get short sentences correct and only occasionally. I have used her and most usually get so irritated that if it wasn't a work phone, I'd throw the damn phone out the window. The other day my son texted to ask how long till I'm home, it took her 4 times to get "in about 10 minutes little buddy". By that time I was already pulling into the drive.
